    A protest is fine...as long as its peaceful and does not harm any innocent person or property.

    Curious Friday, 21 September 2012 01:58 PM

    Do they really know what they are protesting for ??

    dangoda Friday, 21 September 2012 02:13 PM

    According to these guys peace mean violence and terrorism. Real terrorism means peace.

    If they really love peace they should protest on pavement without causing traffic jams and difficulties to other people.

    Americans must be shivering in their boots after seeing this demonstration. These morons are only inconveniencing the Sri Lankan public, by blocking the roads.

    lee Friday, 21 September 2012 03:35 PM

    Dangoda....i guess too much of bbc and cnn. thats all ur brain is.

    Gamini Saturday, 22 September 2012 09:01 AM

    Poor deluded people with plenty of time.

    lankalion Friday, 21 September 2012 03:41 PM

    These people are ridiculous! As if America and Obama got together and made that film that is so trash!

    In any case, religions are not exclusive to anybody and should be open to critique and ridicule. The Christian world doesn't budge with mud is slung on Christianity.

    The beauty of democracy is that everyone is allowed to speak their mind and express themselves as long as they are not violent.

    Dangoga, we know who we are, we dont care about your comments. you are also kind of fenatic who insult muslims and islam. we will be terrorist for people like you. keep your mouth shut.

    LKGuy Friday, 21 September 2012 03:49 PM

    I don't believe so. Also I don't think they understand the irony of the whole thing. They are violently protesting a film that labels them as violent. Human stupidity knows no bounds.

    Hussain Friday, 21 September 2012 03:50 PM

    It appears that Violence is built into Muslims from birth, by all the violent demonstrations the world over, for silly badly made video. How many of these rioters have even seen it? They are giving more publicity to the video for free.

    adhil nizam Friday, 21 September 2012 03:56 PM

    A bunch of Jobless jokers. The only this this does is gives the producer of these films name recognition. Just like Salman Rushdie, this producer will make millions in a few years time as an "expert" on Muslim radicalism. If people have a REAL life and Work to do, they wont have time for this time of nonsense...

    Saradial Friday, 21 September 2012 04:06 PM

    What about Monks blocking road and protest?

    ann Friday, 21 September 2012 04:22 PM

    why are they protesting against the US Embassy? The US government/people weren't behind this movie... just by a messed up lunatic trying to stir up trouble...(and sadly succeeding)

    Lal Friday, 21 September 2012 04:45 PM

    Can't see any leading politician participating the protest. because they know the out come. Every person who participated the protest will be screen and will go to USA secret data base then they never be able to get visa to go to USA. Ha ha ha.... more protest more visa refusal.Lol if you are against the america then go their and protest, not in Sri Lanak. even though USA government can not take responsibilities every individual who make the movies against islam or what ever. No point go against america they are our one of friendly country. who support the Elam war last stage
    I Love USA

    Even, If I comment over your mother's behavior (sorry to use it), will you accept it as it's a beauty of democracy...
    the word u all using is not the DEMOCRACY but DEMO CRAZY...

    Anton Weerasinghe Sunday, 23 September 2012 07:32 AM

    Hey guys let them protest , because this is the easy way to paradise for them. This is the message given by the lebbes to these ignorant Muslims.

    Hussain Friday, 21 September 2012 10:18 PM

    These demonstrations are utterly ridiculous. It just underlines the fact that Muslims are violent, by seeing all these useless violent demonstrations around the world. No one sees other sects, doing this sort of violent demonstrations. It just proves a point about violence and nothing else. The sad fact is over 30 demonstrators have lost their lives in these demonstrations.

    Oh gosh these people have alot of time on there hands.
