Two youth who had broken into a businessman’s house in Baduraliye and had stolen gold jewellery worth Rs 200,000 and Rs 100,000 in cash had gone to the Aluthgama temple and made an offering asking for protection before carrying out the robbery.
The 17 year old student and his 18 year old friend had been arrested by the police after 28 days.
God's Punishment handing over them to the police, which god will protect the thives, or else they hould have prayed to the devil to protect them.

Lack of vision is due to uneducation.

Is this the direction our society in moving in?
Calistus Jayatilleke Monday, 30 August 2010 01:04 PM
Cant blame them. They are just following the top politicians who do all the dirty deeds, take bribes and commissions and then go to temples, churches, kovils and mosques to bribe the Gods in turn.

May be, they would learn in Sunday Schoool...

There is no proper spiritual guidance for the youth today, and this is the responsilibity of the priests, who are also sadly lost without proper base in their preaching.
Gayan Samarasekara Monday, 30 August 2010 08:25 AM
Please don't appoint them as ministers.
Hane Monday, 30 August 2010 01:48 PM
They should have wait in the temple before our politicians finished the offerings.
Babanis Monday, 30 August 2010 02:27 PM
Totally agreed. This is the root cause of the problem in Sri Lanka. One reason for Singapore to develop so fast was honesty by the leaders of the country.
Calistus Jayathileke Monday, 30 August 2010 08:48 AM
People are jobless , hopeless and helpless, Lack of clear vision for the future.
suwimal Monday, 30 August 2010 08:50 AM
You can not prevent them becoming ministers one day. In old days, politicians became thieves. Nowadays, thieves become politicians. So their main profession, thievery, takes prority over secondary profession, politics.
Thomas Monday, 30 August 2010 02:50 PM
Same with most of our politicians

Every corner you turn, there is a lunatic these days.
Deepal Monday, 30 August 2010 03:37 PM
What do you think our politicians do?
DireStaits Monday, 30 August 2010 09:20 AM
Our politicians are doing just that and are even blessed by the holymen/high priests before they go rob the country dry. Obviously the youth are following in the footsteps.
mata nikang hithuna Monday, 30 August 2010 09:27 AM
Simply following the footsteps of our leaders who steal and goes to temple.
Bakamoona Monday, 30 August 2010 10:00 AM
Not protection, may be to get blessings !
Kamiss Monday, 30 August 2010 10:01 AM
The sad part is they asked for 'protection' before comitting the crime. Would have been better if they had asked for pardon for the sin.
Good Lord Monday, 30 August 2010 10:03 AM
No God will protect thieves and wrong doers!!!!
Smart Aleck Monday, 30 August 2010 10:53 AM
But in Sri Lanka the Gods seem to protect and favour the thieves and wrongdoers.
Geronimo Monday, 30 August 2010 10:55 AM
Did the youths ask for protection from the law or did they beseech the Gods to forgive them for the crime they were about to commit? The Gods do not appear to have done either. There is a lesson to be learned here for future emulators of these two juvenile hoods.
