Wimal whacks ‘Google’ again

25 September 2012 07:10 am - 120     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}

A A A

Minister Wimal Weerawansa has held Google responsible for the circulation of the anti-Islamic movie - ‘Innocence of Muslims’- that has sparked violent protests by Muslims all over the world.

Minister Weerawansa has charged that the US authorities are operating the Google search engine to suit their whims and fancies while violating ethics.

Speaking further he has strongly criticized the US for engaging in activities that have posed a threat to world peace and has urged the responsible authorities to censor the availability of the movie on Google, to Sri Lanka users.

    If he doesn't know how Google search engine works (specially the spider) he should keep his gap shut. This is worse than kunu bokku .

    Ane Kale Tuesday, 25 September 2012 09:25 AM

    Exactly what I mean. The spider will search all that's there in the web and return. Wansa wouldn't know this.

    John Tuesday, 25 September 2012 09:25 AM

    ...with US puffs to keep you going?

    minnaabdul Tuesday, 25 September 2012 09:30 AM

    I dont think he goes through this comments and if he does he may not make his comments ,may be malaka can sponsor this man to usa so as to be more educated .

    sizzler Tuesday, 25 September 2012 09:31 AM

    This is for Muslim readers - If Islam rejects idol worshipping then why believe in this film or caricatures o protest.

    fASSEY Tuesday, 25 September 2012 09:36 AM

    Don't be stupid, the title Al haj comes before a persons name

    Request to all medias
    Please ignore mervin's and Wimal' s news.we are fedup of these two jokers

    buffaloa citizen Tuesday, 25 September 2012 09:53 AM

    Worse... his actions are more like a monkey.

    Public Abilik Tuesday, 25 September 2012 09:55 AM

    I am scared.. Wimal has spoken.. This bodes ill to all Sri Lankans. Why? While his antics and idiocy keeps us all distracted along with the T20, We'll all wake up tomorrow to find out that the powers that be, had raised the prices of a few essential items, utilities, and pawned our private parts to some other country.

    do you seriously expect this Modawansa to understand this. Google is not run by US authorities, he thinks every country is run like Sri Lanka

    Lakwesiya Tuesday, 25 September 2012 09:58 AM

    An outsider can judge the state of general public whom elect such jokers as members of parliament.

    Astra is not Indian Dalda. Dalda is a brand name for vegetable ghee called vanaspathi in India. Astra is margarine made in Sri Lanka

    What about when muslims destroyed the Bamiyan Buddha statues. Do they have the freedom to insult other religions but riot
    when they are at the receiving end!!!!!!!

    Jason Tuesday, 25 September 2012 10:33 AM

    I know the some claims made by wimal are preposterous but people have to understand there is some truth to. Google has a part to play in asserting violence and tensions within countries and religious sects. The Google corp is a US government controlled biased institution who are adamant in oppressing information that could be potentially fetal to their order.
    By reading the comment for this article i only makes me think how ignorant most people are they have no idea how the world work, how politics work. Its a shame..

    kirala Tuesday, 25 September 2012 10:39 AM

    I'm actually in doubt whether as a nation, our IQ is anything to be proud of......

    wimale Tuesday, 25 September 2012 11:43 PM

    Google is only a search engine. They didn't make or publicise the movie.. How ignorant you people are

    Public Abilik Tuesday, 25 September 2012 11:10 AM

    Wimal, Is that you signed in as Jason? Google Inc. (NASDAQ: GOOG) is an American multinational corporation which provides Internet-related products and services, including internet search, cloud computing, and software and advertising technologies. Advertising revenues from AdWords generate almost all of the company's profits. HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE US GOVT. (and you dare to call US ignorant?). USA and almost all other first world countries are not run by a bunch of despots 'who are adamant in oppressing information that could be potentially fatal to their order.' for that, you have to look closer to home.

    amila Tuesday, 25 September 2012 11:21 AM

    Uncle why don't you criticize Mervin and Malaka?

    Shaik Ahamath Tuesday, 25 September 2012 11:22 AM

    I am no fan of Minister Wimal Weerawansa but in this instant he has a point, albeit a very distant one. The US government has control on the output of Google (owners of Youtube) although in theory there is the much cherished Freedom of Speech. E.g.There cannot be any output that incites racial hatred or even statement such as the denial of the holocaust. I welcome these exceptions but I doubt the film "The Innocence of Muslims" come into this category.

    Medusa Tuesday, 25 September 2012 11:32 AM

    Well, you are an example, Kirala, aren't you?

    habeeb Tuesday, 25 September 2012 07:20 AM

    YOu cant blame google as far as the law allows them to do so. Why cant we organise a signature capaign in sri lanka and also spread to other countries to send a petition to UN to adopt a policy to ban and prhibit items (Video, Texts Etc) that insult other religion, which escalates violance among communities.

    nalaka Tuesday, 25 September 2012 07:21 AM

    This movie is not upto good standed.But the story is correct.Muslims can not prove that story is not correct.That is why they are this much mad of this.That is the nature of crookers.

    ramkuumar Tuesday, 25 September 2012 07:25 AM

    Wimal, why don't you ask your own government to filter these if don't want to show to your people . You should cover yourself instead of blaming others for seeing it.

    So Wimal, you are again playing the stupid guy's role as per orders. So we can forget about Malaka's story and all other problems arround and talk about you. We (including me and DM) are all fools to even publish them and to comment on these dramas..

    DM for a change publish this also please.

    When modawansa opens his mouth, its "Pani Kadju" for readers, they all enjoy making and reading comments.

    Achala Tuesday, 25 September 2012 07:30 AM

    Modawansa, As long as you keep your mouth shut you seems intelligent. Keep it close, otherwise smell spread around.
    Just surf the meaning of search engine. "Empty vessels make more noise".

    He had forgotten that Google also has millions of good and important information about Buddhism. he always looked Google on the negative aspect only, why don't he look at the positive side of it.

    DHA Tuesday, 25 September 2012 07:55 AM

    ...To me it looks like Wimal doesn't know much about google and youtube.....Dear Minister, anyone has the freedom to upload any movies on youtube there is no restrictions only when they find a contend offending they will delete the video that too depends on a countries IT policy......

    Lanka Shantha Tuesday, 25 September 2012 07:59 AM

    Just heard Iran is going to ban Google and worldwide web and start their own state controlled internet web service to its citizens. Good chance for Wimal also to go and join them so that we can at least have a great respite from these foolish talks which only help to entertain the fools in the gallery.

    Hussain Tuesday, 25 September 2012 04:42 PM

    The US First Amendment permits free speech including offensive speech. The film Innocence of Muslims was neither produced by the US government nor endorsed by the US people. A couple of fanatics produced it, but today the US is been blamed globally.'The film must be banned and the US must enact laws that ban racial and religious incitement and hatred'. But as Americans guard the First Amendment so jealously this is unlikely to happen. The US government has no control whatsoever over the output/content of Google.
