    What! You want to see schoolgirls in action? This is like feeding the fire.

    Please request death penalties to be carried out fast.
    It should be last in first out basis without waiting for 800+ to be hanged first before we get tot he who raped and killed yesterday!

    Please make your case to Mahinda Aiyya and don,t break my heart!

    Dear Peeda Mossa
    You have focused on something so trivial when there is a bigger issue to be dealt with. This is no time for distraction from ensuring the vulnerable are not put at risk anymore.

    When our mothers, sisters, daughters take to the streets to create awareness of child abuse, rape (and I wish to include misbehaviour such as eve-teasing) all fathers, brothers, sons should support it without race, religion, class, political affiliations, language biases etc being made distractions to the cause.

    I would like all female parliamentarions to join together to stamp out these curses. This is not a class battle; it is one of the most important humantarian battles we have to fight now.

    I would consider anyone who throws a spanner in to this, be it by word or by deed as a child molester, rapist or at the least someone who is waiting to do so. So let us not distract ourselves with trivial issues.

    High time! Already many lives had been shattered for good. These campaigns will certainly create much needed awareness to come forward against the perpetrators of such violent crimes. Go girls!!

    Kota Uda Friday, 20 July 2012 11:25 PM

    I'm not sure if "Giniganne" is spelt correctly.

    Raj Friday, 20 July 2012 12:56 PM

    Counttry's law and order simply vanishing.Where are we heading to?

    Kos Ata Kabraal Friday, 20 July 2012 09:15 PM

    My god. Seeing these characters who will have rape on their minds ?

    Indini Friday, 20 July 2012 08:55 PM

    Jayantha, Ref. your comments Do not try to highlight about politicians who brought this to the stage. But think of the crisis happens in Sri Lanka which will may happens to your love ones some time 'cos the abuse and rapes becoming worst now in this country. The worst and most incidents made by the corrupted and wicked politicians. So as a representation let a woman politician comes to the platform and highlights these issue which has to be condemned with the common people on behalf of the society. You are also having a mother, daughter, sister, partner and close relatives/friends. Think of them dearly and support every one without looking at their colour, race, position and status etc.,

    farieze Friday, 20 July 2012 05:30 PM

    Rosy- you are real rsamalak. urge government to put strict islamic rule-otherwise this will continue.

    jayantha Friday, 20 July 2012 04:56 PM

    Why this problems brings to political advantage , this is common crisis of the nation , let people of sri lanka rasie there voice without geting politician ,

    peeda mossa Friday, 20 July 2012 04:25 PM

    What a pleasant surprise ! These ladies know Sinhala and correct spelling too.

    ceylon Friday, 20 July 2012 02:42 PM

    As long as law and order is not in right place all the crimes in SL is going to get bad to worse.

    Raja Friday, 20 July 2012 02:28 PM

    Good luck ladies and gentlemen! All of us have to act on creating the awareness.

    Jeevan Friday, 20 July 2012 02:25 PM

    Good work Ms.Rosy! Please involve school girls into your campaign. It will be more effective...
