Whatever happened to the values and lessons taught by Lord Buddha? What happened to respect for other religions and tolerance?

See the problem in SL is you get a lot of 'Sinhala Buddhists'. There are plenty of normal Buddhists but that special breed have their own set of laws. Buddhism is independent of any race, caste, wealth, power, etc, but 'Sinhala Buddhists' are just the opposite. I mean what happened to 'Mettā'?

Protest is not the correct version to earn anything. In the mean time attacking to any other religion is not acceptable. We have to respect each other to respect us.

The dogs may bark, but the caravan continues its journey. Do not give in to this terrorist. they kill each other in the name of Religion. The majority feels that demolition is justified. .

people protesting against an injustice are terrorist?
and who says majority of the people feel it is justified. Even if people like you feel so it is still incorrect

Huh? Peaceful protests are an essential part of democracy! I am Buddhists, but right now I can say I am proud of the behaviour of Muslims in SL considering the extreme provocation in Dambulla!

Tamils alone are a much bigger community in the world compared to Sinhalese. World muslims put together with Tamils would be much bigger - eventually we sinhalese will be a nwgligible fraction in the world. If we continue this way we will be at the dead end soon!

A fantastic protests, let the leaders know what is rule of law and infringement of human rights The should know what would happend if rights and privileges are denied in a democratic country.No one should be allowed to take the law into one's hands. Muslim leaders and politicians wake up and solve this problem at the nip of the bud.

Majority is minority in some places, vice versa, therefore democracy is not always the rule of majority, that is playing to the gallery! Think before texting 71% 89% etc.
