    Protest is not the correct version to earn anything. In the mean time attacking to any other religion is not acceptable. We have to respect each other to respect us.

    Yehiya Friday, 27 April 2012 10:17 AM

    These all making more problems. Small note of paper can do lot with Mrs. Navanitham pilli.

    Gamini Udagepola Friday, 27 April 2012 03:49 PM

    You are wrong here, First Sinhalese/Buddhists. (71 & 89), Pillaie and the gang were sleeping then. Think again again pls.

    Ralph Anthony Kern Friday, 27 April 2012 10:15 AM

    The dogs may bark, but the caravan continues its journey. Do not give in to this terrorist. they kill each other in the name of Religion. The majority feels that demolition is justified. .

    we all thing about our religiosity not about fighting and be pation with every one,be on your religen*

    Dilrukshi Gomes Friday, 27 April 2012 10:13 AM

    Why these people are taking law to their hands. I think our
    Sri Lankans are fed up of these problems. STRIKE HARTAL ??????????????????

    dhammika Friday, 27 April 2012 10:03 AM

    NOONE has the right or authority to distroy a place of worship. The land belongs to all cast/creed/religions.

    lushankandy@yahoo.co Friday, 27 April 2012 10:23 AM

    pls arrange a public groung for all protesters....and band all protest that disturbe peopls life............this is better for all..........

    Nada Friday, 27 April 2012 10:24 AM

    well said tarzan, if it goes on the entire country will be in chaos and it would affect the wide range of community relationships..

    Abdul Friday, 27 April 2012 10:24 AM

    This is ridiculous... What's the point is protesting? Should make Dua, not this...

    Nodrog Saturday, 28 April 2012 05:00 AM

    Whatever happened to the values and lessons taught by Lord Buddha? What happened to respect for other religions and tolerance?

    senthil Friday, 27 April 2012 04:29 PM

    people protesting against an injustice are terrorist?
    and who says majority of the people feel it is justified. Even if people like you feel so it is still incorrect

    Fusion Saturday, 28 April 2012 06:04 AM

    See the problem in SL is you get a lot of 'Sinhala Buddhists'. There are plenty of normal Buddhists but that special breed have their own set of laws. Buddhism is independent of any race, caste, wealth, power, etc, but 'Sinhala Buddhists' are just the opposite. I mean what happened to 'Mettā'?

    Shelton Fernando Friday, 27 April 2012 05:19 PM

    Tamils alone are a much bigger community in the world compared to Sinhalese. World muslims put together with Tamils would be much bigger - eventually we sinhalese will be a nwgligible fraction in the world. If we continue this way we will be at the dead end soon!

    Fusion Saturday, 28 April 2012 06:07 AM

    Huh? Peaceful protests are an essential part of democracy! I am Buddhists, but right now I can say I am proud of the behaviour of Muslims in SL considering the extreme provocation in Dambulla!

    THUMPANE MODAYA Saturday, 28 April 2012 05:41 PM

    TO WORSHIP GOD YOU DO NOT NEED A BUILDING!!!
    WHAT DO BEDEUINS DO IN THE DESERT???

    Fazil Saturday, 28 April 2012 06:04 AM

    we all are srilankans none of the religions allow the practicer to hurt other religion. we all have to think of the development of our country rather than fighting !!

    azath Friday, 27 April 2012 11:41 AM

    Please, Do not disturb the normalcy of people. Hartal and demonstrations are not Islamic to my Knowledge

    lanka-putha Friday, 27 April 2012 11:47 AM

    Lankans experienced million protest in past..

    so, this is also one of this.. so no fuss Machan..

    Let's express their frastration...peacefully...

    vipula Gunasekera Friday, 27 April 2012 06:49 PM

    A fantastic protests, let the leaders know what is rule of law and infringement of human rights The should know what would happend if rights and privileges are denied in a democratic country.No one should be allowed to take the law into one's hands. Muslim leaders and politicians wake up and solve this problem at the nip of the bud.

    M Friday, 27 April 2012 11:51 AM

    OMG!! Were u not living in Sri Lanka all this while!! where world's highest number of protests/rallies/demonstrations take place...

    Patriot Friday, 27 April 2012 11:39 AM

    Poor Sri Lanka ! First the tamils and now the muslims. Whose next ? come on give us a break.

    UK - Muslim Saturday, 28 April 2012 08:29 AM

    Brothers & Sister , Fight for you rights but please don't inconveniance the genral public . We need their support. Once a Mosque/Budhis or Tamil Temple or a Churche is built It must not come down.

    DINESH Friday, 27 April 2012 09:37 AM

    Do it front of prime minsters office.What you are doing is making poor people's life difficult.

    DINESH Friday, 27 April 2012 09:38 AM

    I dont undestand whether this will work ?? Ask your leaders to speak to prime-minister

    Aftab Aziz Friday, 27 April 2012 09:07 AM

    @Dinesh, did you not notice how poor ppl's lives were made difficult in Dambulla last Friday?

    tarzan Friday, 27 April 2012 09:25 AM

    make entire sri lanka a "pooja boomi "
    problem solved

    SAM_SPARROW Friday, 27 April 2012 09:31 AM

    nobody asked to PM qhen they wanna to demolish the mosque in dhambulla

    Kavindi Friday, 27 April 2012 09:31 AM

    Police, Please come with tear gas & a bowser of water.

    Saud Friday, 27 April 2012 09:50 AM

    Then stop all the protests, even yesterday's protest in kolpetty disrupted the traffic.

    lari Saturday, 28 April 2012 02:01 AM

    Ralf Change your name first - your name is not a sri Lankan. Muslims are true friend of Sri Lanka locally and Internationaly. let me know your opinion when USA passed reslution aginst sri Lanka . do not hve salve mentality please.

    xlntgson Saturday, 28 April 2012 01:52 AM

    Majority is minority in some places, vice versa, therefore democracy is not always the rule of majority, that is playing to the gallery! Think before texting 71% 89% etc.

    DINESH Friday, 27 April 2012 09:51 AM

    I heard only he Mosque got attacked not the poor people !!

    Machan Friday, 27 April 2012 09:23 AM

    Stop this nonses. Bring police and cracdown culprits.

    achtung Friday, 27 April 2012 10:04 AM
