15 August 2013 04:32 am - 41     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


A Muslim school teacher has been arrested for damaging the board of the mosque in Paragahadeniya in Mawathagama in Kurunegala district.

He had been arrested by a police patrol when the eye witnesses in the neighbourhood had complaint about the act. A few days ago Bodu Bala Sena leader Ven. Galabadaatte Gnanasara Thera declared that there's an issue regarding the activities of the mosque in Paragahadeniya.(Pushpakumara Jayarathne)

    I think that mosque should be a well reputed one in the area,otherwise they wouldn't have such notices to show their power via DM Android App

    When the northern Tamils started openly forming groups such as TELO, EPRLF, LTTE, PLOTE etc, they were not nipped in the bud. Now we have various Balawegayas mushrooming, which are not dismantled immediately will be equally powerful in times to come. via DM Android App

    How does any sane human being expect 2 million people from a minority community to overcome and take over power from a 15+ million majority?

    Sammy Thursday, 15 August 2013 05:07 AM

    Why should the people outside a mosque or any other religious place be silent? Do you find these type of boards ahead of a temple or church?

    sam Thursday, 15 August 2013 05:07 AM

    This board is unnecessary

    Para Thursday, 15 August 2013 05:12 AM

    Is it a mosque or a hospital? this notice has never been there infront of temples or churches

    ND Thursday, 15 August 2013 04:45 AM

    So typical. They attack their own and then blame the others. As usual the media will carry stories on how "oppressed" and marginalized the arabized community has become. They are looking for sympathy. Best thing to do is ignore them.

    Eng Thursday, 15 August 2013 05:36 AM

    What is the wrong in having such notice?

    SM Thursday, 15 August 2013 05:36 AM

    Wonder what lesson this teacher was trying to teach?

    Siripala Thursday, 15 August 2013 05:36 AM

    So your so called people are dominating the country now. How is that working for you? Country is really doing well isn't it?

    Observer Thursday, 15 August 2013 05:37 AM

    Our Lanka under the British 'Silence Zone' post was erected everywhere before all religious places; and later what happened it was removed. So this is not new, remind you...

    bab Thursday, 15 August 2013 06:06 AM

    it is so stupid
    that is why?
    you only see such signs near hospitals usually enforceable after 11pm.
    that is the lesson for the day ENG

    mc Thursday, 15 August 2013 06:11 AM

    this board is blocking the pavement and unnecessary. who gave permission to put up that board ?

    Ramzeel Thursday, 15 August 2013 06:20 AM

    Will any of these lunatics try to remove the boards near Hospitals and the Courts.

    nilantha Thursday, 15 August 2013 06:21 AM

    Are we in Sri Lanka or Afghanistan?

    zara Thursday, 15 August 2013 12:00 AM

    who create that board, in that place? that's the problem. who gave permission to it? via DM Android App
