    Please eradicate these fundamental idiots. Keep them in jail for rest of life time to keep peace

    Politicians should not interfere in investigations this time. We don't want this behaviour to escalate. This is not the time for community unrest.

    What ever people say, still dark shadows are running around us....

    2600 years of Buddhist cultural heritage should not be pelted with stones!

    Is a second round coming? I hope the government leaders will be intelligent enough to take this matter seriously and act wisely before a lot of people get killed by extremists and terrorists.

    The incident of this type shows that we are deviating from our duty of fighting against COVID and putting ourselves in to a dire straits.

    Of course those stones have the Govt's blessing!!!

    Nomads Wednesday, 30 December 2020 07:24 AM

    Another 3rd grade typical act of racist and henchmen.Majority stop being fooled or be wise enough to understand this time the motive. Failing to cover a failure.

    If Dadimunda is a god, police could question him to find the thugs who pelted the stones as god could see every corner than a CCTV camera.

    Hah ha here we go! This government has got better ideas to hoodwink the people.

    These are Sinhalese sponsored activities. Now the country is bankrupt because of the Sinhalese, so they want to start something for that.

    From the comments we see every one is gullible. No need to fall for it it's a devious plan.

    This incident is only being seen by many from a certain angle. Deliberate attempts to divert attention away from culprits aiming to create communal disharmony and link only it to the past miscreants are very visible. The stoning incident is explained by many people as a stone ejected by a fast-moving bus. Stealing the explosives also is said to be linked to an employee in the quarry itself. Accidental coincidence also seems to be ignored.

    Despicable act. Use the law to the maximum extent. But I suspect a sinister hand
