    Did the Buddha ever preach such nonsense. It is up to the individual to decide what the eat and drink. Could this be a violation if human rights?

    Are you saying it is ok to eat fish, but not meat?

    citizen1 Tuesday, 10 May 2011 03:17 PM

    A farce as usual...nothing new.

    True Darwin. Human has a brain to think and decide that's where Humans and Animal differ!. Everyone has a right to buy drinks and foods when ever they want.

    malik Tuesday, 10 May 2011 04:12 PM

    Is this a problem to any one who drink every day no.For me it is a problem because i don't get paid for this 3 days and we can eat for 3 day.

    Why is it that only Buddhists have to be forced into religious observances?

    Maidan Tuesday, 10 May 2011 10:30 AM

    Technically they are telling to buy before they close for vesak

    kumaraya Tuesday, 10 May 2011 10:55 AM

    Exactly. Just the usual game of fooling the people and ourselves!

    I Hussein Tuesday, 10 May 2011 11:13 AM

    Does it make any sense?
    You buy the previous day and consume the next few days.

    Shiromi Tuesday, 10 May 2011 11:56 AM
