    had US acted wisely, this problem would have been solved instantly. But they didn't care about the consequences ( May be due to the victims are Muslims) and provoked more hatred form Muslim world. Please ask why US hates Muslims ?
    See when a few Libiyans assassinated the US ambassador, instantly Libiya apologized, and respected the feeling of Americans. what would have happened, had Libiya said that it is their citizen did that dirty work and nothing to with government??? Anger on US is due to the governments negligence in dealing with ethics and common sense. why US didn't act responsibly ??

    By the way I don't subscribe the idea of protesting always in the street and distrusting public, it should not have happened more than once, but it Politicians don't understand this

    There is no need of protesting and/or procession; God knows anything and everything and He will punish the persons and parties involved and concerned with anything went wrong.

    When students or any loal protect towards temple trees the road suddenly gets blocked telling its a high security zone. Lets see how far this goes.

    Viraj Perera Monday, 24 September 2012 06:30 AM

    Hey no point of blaming USA. First of all tell me why you muslims blame USA? Thats called nonsense. What you can do is go to USA find that person who created him & kill that person.
    Please we are now fed up of this protests by you & other university people

    100% Muslim Monday, 24 September 2012 06:35 AM

    Rifas Monday, 24 September 2012 06:37 AM

    I am a muslim and i would say what these guys are doing is wrong all politics. what you would do after reaching US emabassy shoult at them. grow up people
    you are giving them the much needed publicity, everyone in the world knows who is prophet mohamed(saw). get back to work dont spoil the name of the religion

    frank Monday, 24 September 2012 06:38 AM

    protesting is ok. but god never asks disturbing to the other people.

    Outback Joe Monday, 24 September 2012 06:44 AM

    are these people homeless or jobless? like previous occasions of protests have made any difference. the video itself is still hosted on YouTube. if you want to do something about it, don't use their products. go back in to your cave and draw the curtain.

    Spirit Monday, 24 September 2012 06:45 AM

    just like people in the west have the right to express them selves we have the right to freedom of protest ! as a Sri Lankan Muslim I am grateful for the solidarity and support shown to us by our Sinhalese, Tamil and christian brothers in humanity regarding this sensitive subject! Innocent lives being lost due to this matter is regrettable but a clear statement has to be made mocking or insulting any religion cannot be condoned under any circumstance because religion is the very core of the human existence, take away a mans religion and you take away the mans spirit. this is something which these atheists who made the movie have failed to understand

    Spirit Monday, 24 September 2012 06:45 AM

    I know what most of you are thinking why should we care it doesnt affect us plus the thaliban destroyed the Bhamian statue so what goes around has come around to them i would like to say many people can claim to be many things in this world just like the talaiban claim to be devout muslims but god is just and judges us all equally regardless of our religion

    Public Abilik Monday, 24 September 2012 06:50 AM

    We are not saying it is nonsense. The movie was not made by a Sri Lankan, or in Sri Lanka. Then why should regular joe Sri Lankan be inconvenienced? We are with you in spirit, but do you think the people inside the embassy really gives a damn?

    habeeb Monday, 24 September 2012 06:52 AM

    as some one made comment, it is nonsense. Muslim has to be more inteligent. Producer of the film wanted to create unrest. so these people encouraging his motive. the scripts of this films are done and promoted by an egyptian coptic pastor. then what ? are you going to egyptian embassy also ? if you want to do some thing good for Prophet mohamed, Say more salawat on Prophet and follow his words to live as true muslims. Islam never encouraged violance.

    Nearly all protests in SL is orchestrated by GoSL except some such as FUTA's protest, JVP protests

    Warren Tuesday, 25 September 2012 05:46 AM

    Finally.. Someone with a head on their shoulders.. (Habeeb).. The producer is only American on paper. He is actually from Egypt.. So what's the point in blaming "the west" or america.. I never got why Muslims hated America in the first place I mean alotta other countries hate America but why a certain religious group? You say they promote immoral and decadent behavior but have you seen the way some Muslim countries act? People are just looking for a reason to hate and fight. It's pathetic.
