    The Gampolaya is incapable as a Minister thus no actions for many wrong doings.

    Mr. President I request you to advice the Muslims as well. Why in the first place they take over Buddhist Temples and build Mosques ? Why they open restaurants under the name " Buddha Bar " and name the Menu " Nirvana " ? What about the Kuragala Temple and put up a Mosque on the tomb of King Dutu Gemenu ? If you are week and only there to advice only one party, then the existence of Bodu Bala Sena can be justified. If not for them the " Buddha Bar " is still operating. They may not practicing " Seela " but they have pain more than you as a President. We need not only one but several Bodu Bala Sena if you failed to stop these Muslims whom are not ready to stop what they are up to. Yes, Sri Lanka is one country and we MUST live in this beautiful country peacefully with respect to each other’s religions.

    Muslims should understand, unlike Muslim countries where other religions are banned and not allowed to practice can freely practice Islam. Sri Lanka being a Buddhist country has allowed any one to practice their beliefs. If some one trying to take any advantage of that, then the consequences will be deadly and will drag the entire nation to another bloody conflict. The President, all other politicians and all citizens MUST understand this.

    Mr. Asoka,

    So called Buddha Bar was operated by hotels managed by JKH. and its headed by Mr, Susantha Rathnayake. nothing to do with any Muslim individual.

    Which Muslim country has banned other religions? Please emphasize it without spreading falsehood. You may be referring to Saudi Arabia! If so please understand there are no other religious minorities in Saudi other than expatriate work force.

    Very balanced approached of MR. He knew that only arab countries were with him at Geneva when USA, India and western allies were totally against our mother land.
