    In other words, these deeds are done by uncivilised barbarians and what your proposing is also what an uncivilised barbarian will do.

    Bonnie, Shariah law is not now, nor will it ever be the answer in Sri Lanka or anywhere else.

    We may be responsible for murder, rape and corruption but we don't drink alcohol on poya days! So we are good people no?

    This is what happens when monks congregate people in temple every weekend and tell them to hate everything different in order to be as buddhist as possible.

    Absolutely nothing is wrong with the country. Yakkos will always show their culture from time to time, even though they have got converted to buddhism and made to look civilised.

    to stop killing, sri lanka need to implement a new law.. no point of sending people to jail for lilfe time for a crime like this.. murder is the only fair law...

    Jaramaraman Monday, 12 November 2012 10:52 AM

    Where is our so called justice system when prisoners can takeover the prisons. They have no fear even if they face a jail sentence. It is only a matter of time now when everything will start escalating.

    Great stuff Sri Lanka. Way to go in line with the customs, beliefs, practices and ethics of our present regime of leaders.
