    Lord Wolfstein Wednesday, 20 February 2019 04:22 PM

    What a rubbish to arrest people who take only photos at holy places. Where is the problem so long they are not urinating or show other bad behavior?

    would allow to take pictures on top of Kaaba stone, after climbed up wearing shoes, this is just to provoke different religious groups purposely by some Islam fundaments who are so dumb to understaend the would be repercussions

    A clear sign of DISRESPECTING buddism ! .

    The People who have killed Tahajutheen is still at large... the people who have looted the country are still free... poor youngsters arrested for taking photos and remanded further. We need some logical thinking..

    Murder, rape, drug suspects get bail within a week. Why would they remand two youth who took photos? I can't understand this system.

    @Anton, How about asking this from a law professional?

    There was an incident in Hatton Buddhist Temple of Two Ordinary Level students having liquor prior to the Sunday class and vomiting during the class and once the Monk who is in charge of the class reported this to the police the police arrested them and released after a verbal warning. No remand, no legal proceedings. Is this is acceptable? There are so many offences these two boys did in this Buddhist Temple. Discrimination in the highest level.

    Hari Wednesday, 20 February 2019 11:57 PM

    So what about students having alcohol in the Hatton Buddhist Temple no action needed?

    Tharaka Thursday, 21 February 2019 07:24 AM

    You are a stupid idiot. Why don’t go birthplace of Jesus and piss on it.

    Roshan Thursday, 21 February 2019 08:17 AM

    Is this news worthy ?

    rajinda silva Thursday, 21 February 2019 08:37 AM

    Speak to human rights and solicit help.

    Weakness in school education.Should teach to respect Sri Lankan culture.School education is sufficient to change the characters.See ,how some great schools create national heroes ,even they come from different societies!Should blame the authorities not the students.National leaders should aware this worst situation. Unless far sighted leaders didn't took proper action about 150 years ago by starting great educational institutes situation would be different.

    This is third similar incident within two weeks time. Their intention is provoke Buddhists, if they are not punish severely, soon it would be a catastrophe.
