    the behavior of the protesters seems uncivilized. The student walking into the university may be a complete outsider to both JVP or Govt. The people attack him as if they considers him to be their enemy. they say; they are against JVP for attacking others. Is there a difference , both the attackers and being attacked same.

    The Kid might say he asked for it and not to punish people who attacked them

    good comment

    I do not approve of the actions of this so called 'DR'. But one should not wait too long for the parents of the Uni students to rise against the JVP backed IUSF, which is disrupting the education of the students to gain olitical milage. Some of the IUSF members had been in the university for more than 8 years without even getting through their 1st year exam.
    The JVP wants to have one or two students killed by the police so that they can make a big scene out of it. They do not give a dammn about the free education or the rihts of the students. They are after their political glory at the expense of the innocent students.

    tharanga Thursday, 28 October 2010 07:13 AM

    Even during the time of LTTE we ppl had right to fight for rights..Irony is how mal-educated ppl like u call uni students 'thugs'.well they do their studies ..hw do you know they fail their exms

    modawansa Wednesday, 27 October 2010 08:26 AM

    Well done doctor.You have done a great job.

    You should have also tied som of the students to the trees,your native treatment to cure all their deceases.

    Wasantha Wednesday, 27 October 2010 08:29 AM

    Some minsters predicted that public would react very soon. Accordingly this is well planned and organized by Dr. Merwin. Who else?.

    Percy Mandawala Wednesday, 27 October 2010 08:32 AM

    Rowdy Mervin in action!

    Mervin's thugs

    Weerasinghe Wednesday, 27 October 2010 11:21 AM

    The protest and attacks on kalaniya students is not a spotenious thing. It is well organized thing by the government. The JVP provocative actions used by tyhe government to moblize right wing forces against students and the working people. This cynical and brutal act of the Rajapakse government and the JVP provacations must be condenmed. At the same time thinking people must realise growing danger.

    snow fernando Wednesday, 27 October 2010 11:21 AM

    Dear Dravid & Graduate
    I think you both are not living in Sri Lanka.Thats why u dont hv any feeling towards what is happening in sri Lanka.Uni student priority is to Learn not to show thuggery actions..u also should not try to politize this.May be u r licking boot of white masters.but that does not mean that u should insult the contry and its people and the government.Its because of this gov we are living safely now without any bombs.Remember that.People like you are idiots to politize this issue.If uni student cant study.let them go to hell without wasting public money.You are both fools though u hv degree.Go to hell Ba*****tard

    Hasiya Wednesday, 27 October 2010 11:21 AM

    Totally agree

    Hasiya Wednesday, 27 October 2010 11:22 AM

    Poor students?? Bt majority are the opposite

    Hasiya Wednesday, 27 October 2010 11:23 AM

    How can u say he's innocent?? Cant tell from his face or anythin

    Nilantha Wednesday, 27 October 2010 11:24 AM

    This is not totally acceptable... how did the attackers identified this student belongs IUSF or JVP....?
    Even if this student belongs to IUSF attack is not acceptable.

    If someone do something agents the law or something inhuman, that person has to punish as per the law from a court.. not like this.

    Sri Lankan Wednesday, 27 October 2010 08:37 AM

    Mervyn in ACTION ?

    Nilantha Wednesday, 27 October 2010 11:25 AM

    very true

    Dinesh Wednesday, 27 October 2010 08:38 AM

    Never seen above guys in Kelaniya before.

    Mohamed Wednesday, 27 October 2010 11:25 AM

    Wow! I wonder how much these people are being paid by Mervin to stage the protests against the students?

    Riyazi Wednesday, 27 October 2010 08:39 AM

    ‘Kelaniya people’ ....that rang my bell

    Dinesh Wednesday, 27 October 2010 08:39 AM

    May be temporary residents specially for the assigned task.

    manura Wednesday, 27 October 2010 11:28 AM

    this one also may be a drama from kalaniya....

    lanka nuke Wednesday, 27 October 2010 08:41 AM

    Too late but good. This should happen in island wide. People should against this situation. JVP Buggers want to make civil war again same as 89 and 90 years. Otherwise these bugger can't survive.

    Gayan Samarasekara Wednesday, 27 October 2010 08:41 AM

    This is Marvin Silva without doubt.

    willows Wednesday, 27 October 2010 08:42 AM

    Dr. at work???

    Cynic Wednesday, 27 October 2010 08:43 AM

    We know who these Kelaniya people are. Disgraceful master and the grand master.

    Fayad Wednesday, 27 October 2010 08:43 AM

    Irrespective of whom attacks should stop are we a civilized society ?? But we are very famous for talking about 2500 years history. .

    kaz Wednesday, 27 October 2010 08:43 AM

    No JUST-ICE for the victim...as well as country...lets go...to the miracle of asia...

    migara Wednesday, 27 October 2010 09:02 AM

    those who cheer Dr. should realize the gravity of letting goons against students. JVP is mad but getting imported thugs and street women to hammer students.... next day they will be at your door step!

    upul Wednesday, 27 October 2010 09:02 AM

    Dilshan Wednesday, 27 October 2010 09:20 AM

    following the footsteps of there leader... taking the law to their hands... disgraceful.

    Cmillus Perera Wednesday, 27 October 2010 09:26 AM

    Students deserve a good beating and nothing will come out of this as everbody is saying "gahanda epa" (dont beat them) . Dont mess around, just give them a good beating for wasting your money and continue to do so untill they stop their political activities.

    vihanga Wednesday, 27 October 2010 09:27 AM

    come back all
    for save this land from murders...

    malkanthi Wednesday, 27 October 2010 09:27 AM

    sampath Wednesday, 27 October 2010 09:33 AM

    Inside the university JVP thugs, Out side Mervin's thugs. distressing about poor students future.

    Ravy Wednesday, 27 October 2010 01:14 PM

    First we turn against a war hero and lock him up in a prison.
    Now against a student who may not have had anything to do with the protests. Is there no end to uncle Merv instigated mob violence? Shame on those women in the mob.Sri Lankans deserve better!!

    Chow Chow Wednesday, 27 October 2010 09:44 AM
