    So what is the fuss?We should be more concerned about the disregard of the Dharma even by some so called monks. This is all superficial stuff with no real value

    How about printing Jesus or elephant trunk muruga's picture inside a commode

    No big deal, the image of Buddha is a commercial item today but the lady being a lawyer should have been a little more conservative when dressing to attend court.

    This is Sinhala Buddhism so Buddha can be printed on papers, pasted and thrown out in garbage all over but cannot have it in Saree.

    My colleague brought and image of Buddha in his shirt pocket for the advanced level examination with a believe that he will be blessed enough to pass. The lawyer could have done so to win a case she was representing. What is the fuss?

    We are looking forward for a another riot. then we decide what to do with you tamils.

    We will show you the fuss if this incident converted to a riot.

    Mandayan Tuesday, 09 October 2018 10:18 AM

    Really, if you go for another riot, then we Sinhalese have no place in earth to run to.

    based on the comments made ,why cannot the lawyer file a case highlighting the stupidity of the ban in courts

    Warren Raed Monday, 08 October 2018 12:09 PM

    Doesn't the police have other better things to do? What about starting to follow up on all the politicians who have committed so many crimes?
