    Rata Haraka Saturday, 16 February 2013 08:39 AM

    Does anyone know who the victim was? Or because he is from 'Barnes Watte - a slum', he is not worthy of mentioning? Any was any of our famous 'Silvas' or their offspring involved?

    well said mate. I really wondered why "watta" had been eavyly highlighted ignorant of that being a so called shanty town.

    patriot Friday, 15 February 2013 04:58 PM

    True we can boast of a buddhist culture if not for the events of 1815, 1958, 1983 etc. Do we stop here or go on and earn a bad name due to the misguided acts of a few groups.

So.. welcome to Sri Lanka guys a hell on earth. Not worth sparin a second thought. Let the guy go free. This is a free society to kill and do as you will. Bloody buffaloes all, the governors and the governed. From the Pres's men to the Pra'sabhas and all the rest shall follow suit. The way's clear guys to rape kill and rob and do as you damn well please.

    suneth Friday, 15 February 2013 08:56 AM

    he kill him self. no one responsible.. this is how Colombo 7 fight goes. Finally the victim must be in culprit. this is how it goes.

    lankaman Friday, 15 February 2013 08:57 AM

    My point was, people coming from disadvantaged backgrounds should have invested their time, youth and meager money to seek a skill or education. Once they do well, they will also develop the right mentality to avoid trouble

    Cynic Friday, 15 February 2013 08:44 AM

    Which watta is Malaka supporting?

    Bodu Bala should focus their attention on Karaoke instead of halal issues

    jayantha silva Friday, 15 February 2013 08:14 AM

    Do not forget that we were under foreign rule for 500 years until 1948 . Everything Buddhist was destroyed during that time . Don't always attack Buddhist culture for eevrything that happens in this country , we are a lot better than most .

    Sapumal Bandara Friday, 15 February 2013 08:17 AM

    You extremist minded Lobo, please refrain from dragging Buddhism in to anything and everything that happens in Sri Lanka.
    When the extremists feel it suits them they call Sri Lanka a Multi Cultural and a Multi Religious country.

    Observer Observer Friday, 15 February 2013 07:42 AM

    Alcohol, drugs and women may be the main cause. Instead of forming a committee, this case should be handed over to the Parliament, to hear the case.

    We are a yakko state. Can't even go out for an evening of fun without fighting and killing. And we still want to brag about 2600 years of Buddhist culture?
