Muslims in the East are currently engaged in a harthal campaign against the inflammatory video that has sparked an uproar throughout the world.

Our reporter said that residents of Samanthurai, Kalmunai, Nindavur and Nachchimadu are currently participating in the protest, burning tires and effigies of the US President.

However, no Police presence was visible at the locations of protest.

    real loosers US is not going to loose anything by this actually you loose by closing all the shops. Understand the real fault before taking actions. I am a Muslim

    Then according to your though process uploading a video of your mother naked and having sex with the guy next door is ok with you... You will then keep your mouth shut and say "That's freedom of speech"....

    A line should be drawn here... There is a limit for everything!!!

    Sugest all Muslims to stop using Google & You Tube as done in the ME. Lets play the game right!!!

    Anton Weerasinghe Friday, 21 September 2012 08:20 AM

    The producer of the film has achieved what he wanted to achieve, Which is to annoy the Muslim World. If the Muslims are wise (?) they should have ignored the whole episode and the producer will be ashamed off what he did.

    Seyed Friday, 21 September 2012 09:10 AM

    Hal, I agree that many muslims are reacting in a very wrong way over this film all around the world. But such reactions are coming from a small sub-section of the total muslim population of the world. Even in Sri Lanka the number of muslims participating in these activities would be less than 2% of the total muslims in the country. Therefore, please do not try to show your hatred in your comments and include the whole community.If you are intelligent enough to analyse a problem you will choose your words carefully

    Jaya Friday, 21 September 2012 09:15 AM

    The producer will have time to be ashamed when he is dead in the near future

    Lobo Friday, 21 September 2012 09:24 AM

    Why do Muslims always react like this after attending friday mosque? Are they incited and goaded on by their Mullahs?

    Gamini Saturday, 22 September 2012 08:54 AM

    Get real man and stop dreaming.

    Azmi Friday, 21 September 2012 09:41 AM

    I am a muslim and I dont know what is wrong with this stupid people for protesting. Grow up u dumb fools...

    Sleaze Friday, 21 September 2012 10:10 AM

    Go and try to educate your muslim community. We have every right to criticize islam and the muslim prophet. And we have every right to criticize the deluded followers of islam, you know the people who protest over a low-budget movie and do not protest when ancient statues are demolished or people are beheaded in the name of their religion. Sshhhh! Tolerance!!

    Jim Friday, 21 September 2012 10:14 AM

    The producer is a wonderful man and all non-muslims are proud of him. I liked the film and voted for it in youtube.

    Kapila Friday, 21 September 2012 10:15 AM

    Now now!!!!! You don't want to anger muslims by calling them idiots. Don't you know they find it offensive. Don't offend muslims!

    Kapila Friday, 21 September 2012 10:16 AM

    Christians pray on Sunday. But they don't riot, burn and kill. muslims burn riot, rape and kill on Fridays. Big difference between the two religions!

    Kapila Friday, 21 September 2012 10:16 AM

    Please don't offend a muslim by calling them idiots! muslims will riot and burn down your house. islam is a religion of peace.

    Hal Friday, 21 September 2012 06:25 AM

    Idiots, why burn effigies of Obama. He had nothing to do with this. Who care let these idiots burn what ever they want. This is the most set of deluded people in the world.

    Sue Friday, 21 September 2012 06:27 AM

    Ridiculous! non of this makes sense anymore. Even if the video is offensive (Although I found it to be purely 'Stupid' and a cheap piece of nonsense) I don't see why we need to have harthal in SL. Plus, the video was uploaded by a certain individual. In a democratic society freedom of speech is pivotal no matter how it may offend another person's view point. I think it's time people realize this and try not to over react in the name of "Islam".

    shiv Friday, 21 September 2012 05:41 PM

    hey, if you have a mother like that...is it your mother's problem?? or the up loader's problem??

    Kapila Friday, 21 September 2012 10:20 AM

    Yes stop using western medicine also. Stop using the computer muslims. muslims must pray to allah to give them scientific miracles.....like their koran. LOL!

    Lobo Friday, 21 September 2012 06:36 AM

    Silly people, what will this accomplish other than justify the world opinion that we are a nation of ignorant and violent people.

    Raheem Friday, 21 September 2012 09:39 PM

    WHEN FOREIGENERS KISSED THE BUDDHA BOTH THE FOREIGNERS BEEN PUT INTO JAIL. HATRAL TAKING PLACE IN THE EAST BY THE MUSLIMS ARE JUSTIFIED. EASTERN PROVINCE NOW BELONGS TO THE MUSLIMS AND MUSLIMS ONLY.SHARIA LAWS SHOULD BE IMPLIMENTED IN THE EASTERN PROVINCE.

    ravi Friday, 21 September 2012 07:06 AM

    Hal you are correct this people need something on every friday real idiots.

    uma Friday, 21 September 2012 07:08 AM

    Please show this film in large screens in the Town. Then we can decide who is wrong. I have no comments.

    Seyed Friday, 21 September 2012 07:13 AM

    An extremely unnecessary and unislamic act of Muslims to give popuarity to a low-budget insulting film. Protests and harthals are unislamic way of dealing with such issues. Muslims can hold public lectures and distribute reading materials to increase awareness of the fact.

    junior citizen Friday, 21 September 2012 07:16 AM

    Buddha image and picture is used in bars, ladies underware, slippers etc,. who cares, you cant stop it. To Buddhist, the image is impregnant in the mind. no body can harm that image- thats dhamma way to react- muslims must learn it

    Sunil Lanka Friday, 21 September 2012 07:22 AM

    They should revolt against Hakeem for fooling them first and not againt US

    SimplePlan Friday, 21 September 2012 07:31 AM

    Bunch of idiots... Again showing their stupidity to the world as always.

    Sammy Friday, 21 September 2012 07:42 AM

    There have been insults to other religions as well, at various times through cheap books, paintings, films etc. Why is it that when it happens to Islam that there is such mass rabid & fanatical reaction by many misguided elements of the religion. The truth and honour of the teachings of a religion can never be degraded in anyway.

    Nadik44 Friday, 21 September 2012 07:44 AM

    Why are the muslims getting their knickers in a twist - one lunatic in the US makes an offensive video and that doesn't mean it's what 300million Americans think or what the US government believes. The muslims ought to focus on the fact of getting ripped off by their own leaders in the east of this country.

    tony montana Friday, 21 September 2012 07:57 AM

    Group of idiots burning effigies wont help at all .and now they are putting posters in New York city against Muslims and you stupids keep on protesting nothing will work out.
