A section of the Galle road between Colpetty and Galle face is temporarily closed as monks of the Bhikku Union of the Colombo University and the police are involved in a standoff, with the monks attempting to reach Temple Trees. (SD)
Why does'nt anyone get it that its a futile misson to even come closer to temple trees. You voted for "HIM" Now live with the consequences

LET US HEAR WHAT THE MONKS WANT TO SAY. THE POLICE AS WE KNOW ARE NOT IMPARTIAL.

If it is a peaceful march why should the police bother, afterall they want to meet the first citizen.

JVP will learn the most difficult lesson on 8th and thereafter most of this type of puppet shows won't be staged.

If these 'monks' cannot discipline themselves, somebody needs to teach them how to behave in public, since the whole of Buddhism is insulted by their violent mannerisms.

Amazing, how after a poll the people's representative (the agent) becomes less accessible to them (the principal). The 'agent' is always subordinate to the 'principal,' except in politics!

If this is JVP propaganda, then, we need to find out where those robes came from. Anyway, it is extra income for our tailors.

Is this, what the Buddha taught?

The reason for the monks' protest was the proposed establishment of a separate 'Academy for Bhikkus.' I can't see anything wrong with that as there is no purpose in Bhikkus attending other universities to follow qualifications not relevant to Buddhism.
