    Joke of the Day. All these drugs are made in Muslim countries, specially in Pakistan. and all the Big drug importers and dealers in Sri Lanka are Muslims. Just check the names of the ppl who get caught at BIA. Cancer of the World!

    Night clubs are packed these days with children getting spoiled with drugs and etc, Most if the patronizes are Christians and Buddhist , why can't our church educate them, or atleast follow the Muslims 80% of there race avoids this..
