The Principal of Thurstan College, Colombo had been removed from his position and posted to the Education Ministry with effect from today, Minister Akila Viraj Kariyawasam said.

He said an inquiry would be conducted on the matter.

    If some one from the school makes mistake, he/she will be transferred to Education Ministry. Why? Is the ministry = prison.

    Allegedly threaten and he is out without any evidence. Sounds familiar !

    Very good decision to restore some discipline. However what do we do to the monk who threated a member of parliament on camera, or storming a ministry ? Seem like this government has selective hearing and partial amnesia !

    Why these monks are in politics and schools? as a religious teacher, then I agree. If not, they should focus on spreading the messaging of Lord Buddha.

    This is due to the assault on a Buddhist monk who was a teacher at Thurstan College. I do put the full blame on the principal. Thanks to BBS, Ravana Sena and the JHU the respect for the Buddhist monks are diapering. The way some of these monks behave and speak in public is disgusting. It is better to look for the root cause and take remedial measures.

    The regulations should be changed so that all goverment employees should be sacked if he or she found guilty for a crime.They cannot have prevelages.

    What has gone wrong with the temples? If nothing has gone wrong, then why on earth is that monks are deserting the temples and not preaching "Bana", now a days????

    Monks have become public menace for the civilized society. Any extremist should be kicked out irrespective of their affiliated religion and ethnic group
