A large number of Buddhist monks marched to the Indian embassy in Colombo today demanding that India not support a proposed UN resolution.

The monks were carrying a banner saying that India’s latest decision to support the resolution would damage the close ties between the two friendly countries.

The Sri Lankan government on Tuesday sought India's support in the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva.

External Affairs Minister G.L. Peiris had contacted his Indian counterpart S.M. Krishna and urged India to reconsider its stand.

    Mahanayakas should make an official request from the Indian leadership.

    it seems like no sign of compassion or kindness shown in their face.

    Ha...ha...like closing the stable door after the horse has bolted. If the SL government had not tried to cosy up to China and if they had even started to implement what was stated in the LLRC report, none of this would have happened. Now it's time to face the music from the UN.

    How many of you know what is really happening in Geneva? Better march to the Temple trees and demand the arrest of Karuna who killed your fellow monks in Arantalawa. How can you win where the professor of law fails? Preach bana to upasakas instead of meddling in international affairs.

    Look at a normal citizen and look how well fed they are. They have no worries so they have to do something constructive.
