    If the guys clad in civilian clothes were arrested, why not this yellow robed thugs too? One law for laity and another for so called "cleric"? Do we witness clergy of other religious denominations in Sri Lanka conduct themselves in such an unruly, inhumane manner? Shame on these guys.

    Prelates are not supposed to go with their robes lifted to harass and frighten the public.

    Its a insult to Buddhism having such man dress in yellow robes & claiming to monk while behaving like rasthiyadu fellow surely these short of individuals should be banned from wearing siwura via DM Android App
