    The illiterracy, shame, disgust and crookedness of SL poiliticians. As a Sri lankan i am ashamed of my countrymen and women. Thank Almighty God i can proudly stand up and show westerners and white skinned onlookers that i am a educated SLankan.

    its not that simple..what they are doing should be done by every man in the country. these multinationals come in take all the money abroad in loyalties, and are regardless about health care as they are the ones who rule the governement in their country so no one to question. they use the most unethical methods to make profits. so now if some one is standing up id recomend join them and kik em out of the country. and always focus on local brands so we prosper not bloddy mcdonalds kfc,nestles and fonteras they r all artificial

    When the case is in the court, how can act like these.Politicians playing fool in all the area. If they paid to them, no one look. What happen to Weliweriya.

    TM Thursday, 22 August 2013 09:31 AM

    Who is the politician is behind this drama?

    nillu Thursday, 22 August 2013 09:33 AM

    look at the first picture, it is a bloody child abuse

    Hafsal Thursday, 22 August 2013 09:35 AM

    These people are off their head. You can protest but keep the kids at home and come. If something unwanted happens those kids can't run by them selves or protect them selves. You fight but keep the kids safe first.

    Des Thursday, 22 August 2013 09:36 AM

    Boru show...poor child though.

    hiks Thursday, 22 August 2013 12:25 PM

    Jude Thursday, 22 August 2013 09:40 AM

    Take action first against the stupid mother for ill treating her daughter by bringing her to the protests. These protests are backed up by politicians for sure.

    CrazyLanka Thursday, 22 August 2013 09:46 AM

    Has anyone died of Fontera Milk products ? Or is this a gimmick to shut down Fontera.

    ANTON Thursday, 22 August 2013 09:48 AM

    Sanyo Thursday, 22 August 2013 09:50 AM

    silva Thursday, 22 August 2013 09:51 AM

    we should have to reject people like this......

    hb Thursday, 22 August 2013 09:53 AM

    Poor child. This woman deserves the mother of the year award, while Wimal deserving the minister of the year award!

    Ramiz Thursday, 22 August 2013 10:03 AM

    Arrest these jokers who bring kids to these meetings for child abuse !!! Why should the poor kid suffer !!!

    Ramiz

    R.Dias Thursday, 22 August 2013 10:09 AM

    Political drama...hik..hik..hik..

    Sunilw Thursday, 22 August 2013 10:16 AM

    this is child abuse!!!
    the parents should be reprimanded for this.

    protesting is fine but using a child and forcing its hands (refer photo). parents doing more damage than the milk powder.

    somapala Thursday, 22 August 2013 10:18 AM

    Unfortuntely these sort of idiots live only in Sri Lanka.

    I belive there are many old cowswearing sarees, and bulls in pants.

    joke Thursday, 22 August 2013 10:18 AM

    an other stupid wimal act... may be trying to make money from china !

    chandra Thursday, 22 August 2013 10:21 AM

    again people take law into hand and trying to protest on a subject they are not well aware of. Surely someone behind encoraging this people.

    CHild protection authorities please arrest this woman bringing a todler to the protest site. We must do immediately otherwise many will start this gymick.

    HHH Thursday, 22 August 2013 10:22 AM

    first of all these mothers should be taught about the value of their poor little children. see those kids... why don't they understand that this Mussammil is a cheater? see how these mothers are hurting their poor children to make Musammil happy.

    Mr Disgusted Thursday, 22 August 2013 10:23 AM

    No doubt there is a hidden hand behind all this - It is all for money!

    Labby Thursday, 22 August 2013 10:24 AM

    Whats all this hue and cry? All we need to do is to stop consuming those products, that's all.

    Rosh Thursday, 22 August 2013 10:25 AM

    Why the hell they protest in the first place? Milk powder is not a must and forcefully fed, hence they can either ignore the brand or milk totally. Total bullshit act by those goons only !!!!

    Flatwhite Thursday, 22 August 2013 10:35 AM

    Violation of a kids right here? Stupid parents should be first of all should be arrested for using innocent children who does not know whats going on in front of a coffin.

    surain lal Thursday, 22 August 2013 10:38 AM

    Mr. president please take steps to act wisely and stop these noncence at earliest This is not a good sign for the country and for your image these so called politician are ruining your name again & again internationally it was tigers then & now your own stupid politicians

    kumara soysa Thursday, 22 August 2013 10:40 AM

    The State must take the parents of this child into custody for child abuse. To put a small, helpless child on top of a coffin that is associated with death is a terrible thing that brings a curse on the child and the perpetrators. Such arrogance, such foolishness. Where will this end?
