    Why only Cattle? why not ban all animals?

    Andy Wednesday, 26 June 2013 10:55 AM

    what a waste of time..

    OMG Wednesday, 26 June 2013 11:07 AM

    What puzzles me why is this special treatment for cattle? Chicken, fish, pork are life too!!

    We are sadly heading towards becoming like Myanmar or known as Burma to many. The ending of the war was expected to make this the new Singapore of Asia. That is now pipe dream.

    sri lankan Wednesday, 26 June 2013 11:12 AM

    This is real waste and cant understand such a stupid nation

    Roshan Wednesday, 26 June 2013 11:16 AM

    if it is against the Cattle slaughter, then why are they calling Arab s as murderer while going on the procession?

    worker Thursday, 27 June 2013 05:02 AM

    No work ...
    No family ...
    No need to earn...
    Free food ...

    Jasmin Wednesday, 26 June 2013 11:24 AM

    More than happy to discuss this over stake.. :-) Can some one show where in buddism this is written? Cows? Chicken? Fish? etc..

    Jake Wednesday, 26 June 2013 11:25 AM

    I'm Buddhist and I'm against cattle slaughter, but the intent behind these protests seem to be a desire to assert a notion of "Buddhism is superior".

    I wonder if these monks would next go on to stop slaughter of all animals, including fish, as this is also a clear violation of the first precept.

    If they want to promote the practice among Buddhists, that would be great. However, I'm against using the law to propagate religious/ cultural "values". People should make decisions based on their own understanding, not because the law "forces" them to do it. In that respect, the primary goal of Buddhist monks should be to promote the practice of loving-kindness and the precepts will follow automatically from the practice. These protests seem to be rooted in bigotry and aversion towards other religions and other ways of life and in the long run this would lead to more problems. I hope they can see that.

    IS THIS AGAINST CATTLE SLAUGHTER OR SOME OTHER THING ?

    Kodituwakkuarachchi Wednesday, 26 June 2013 11:27 AM

    Lord Buddha has put all sins killing ALL life (not just cattle), intoxication, gambling at the same level.

    Why are these people singling out ONLY the killing of cattle, and turning a blind eye towards the rampant alcoholism, mushrooming casinos, etc.?

    Sam Wednesday, 26 June 2013 11:29 AM

    Jobless. Today I really wasted my time in the traffic jam!!!

    Carlo Wednesday, 26 June 2013 11:29 AM

    If they do this price of MILK WILL BE ABOUT RS,1000/00. OR ELSE THE CATTLE FARMS WILL BE CLOSED DOWN. Not enough income to feed the animals. Rich people will buy milk at any cost; what about the poor.-Poor man-

    B Hasala Wednesday, 26 June 2013 11:32 AM

    Actually, when I see these guys, they look like JOKERS of the country.
    They are the curse !

    Kasun Wednesday, 26 June 2013 11:33 AM

    I'm a Buddhist but I have never come across a Buddhist teaching which advises to give preferential treatment to cattle over pigs, chickens, goats and fish.

    Gemba Thursday, 27 June 2013 05:37 AM

    This is very foolish ,an utter waste of time & money. If they are really genuine about the eating of beef, then preach to the people not eat beef, that is the proper solution, If no one eats beef then they would not have to kill cattle. This is purely for show to get noticed. Quasi - political gathering, noting more.

    Thushara Wednesday, 26 June 2013 11:33 AM

    Job less guies..

    Nishantha Wednesday, 26 June 2013 11:33 AM

    “Cow-slaughter and man-slaughter are in my opinion two sides of the same coin.” (Mahatma Gandhi) , Dear SR, please up your voice against mam-slaughter as well.

    Fassey Wednesday, 26 June 2013 11:33 AM

    cant they do the same protest against liquor shops? it is spoiling the life and killing humans? Oh sorry i forgot the cows more valuable than humans in sri lanka

    Harry Wednesday, 26 June 2013 11:36 AM

    People have plenty of spare time for these sort of activities. Unemployment maybe a cause for concern!

    Rahmathullah M. H. Wednesday, 26 June 2013 11:37 AM

    What is bigger crime man slaughter or cattle slaughter? In Sri-Lanka human lives are cheaper than animal lives.

    aser Wednesday, 26 June 2013 11:44 AM

    Buddism IS superior!!

    Well Said Brother. If all the Sri Lankans think like you, Sri Lanka would have been a better place long time ago

    wise Wednesday, 26 June 2013 05:00 PM

    It looks like it is a God's curse to this country,country will never progress,one cannot proudly say I am a "Srilankan"

    Peace Lover Thursday, 27 June 2013 06:01 AM

    How can you explain this to Mad Men. Fools.

    Loki Thursday, 27 June 2013 06:01 AM

    are you also against all sorts of animal slaughter, be it fish, or chicken, or just Cattle?

    Peace Lover Thursday, 27 June 2013 06:03 AM

    Like Norway Arabs did not give them Money to create problems in Sri Lanka. You know what I mean.

    Max Wednesday, 26 June 2013 05:02 PM

    I sayyy , after a couple of 'shots' (spirits) all these protesters will have a bite (taste) and enjoy and my request is, if you can Protest against the 'slaughter of cattle' why cant you go in front of people who 'slaughter Humans' ? , is it coz they are higher ups that you don't wanna pull up the stories? shame on you guys as 'Priests' ...

    Peace Lover Thursday, 27 June 2013 06:09 AM

    Superior to what??? Attacking innocent people? Attacking their Religious places? Attacking their work places? Attacking their Women? Abusing them? WHAT SUPERIORITY ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT??? Think before you talk or write something.

    Peace Lover Thursday, 27 June 2013 06:12 AM

    These monks can take them to the Temple, HUG them and SLEEP....

    Peace Lover Thursday, 27 June 2013 06:15 AM

    Ahhh,those are for Devil Fish as bites.

    Peace Lover Thursday, 27 June 2013 06:17 AM

    If they close Wine Stores, from where are they going to get Liquor??? Ha ha ha....

    Minister Thursday, 27 June 2013 06:18 AM

    I was little confused looking at the placard on the 4th picture. Is that really true?

    Concerned citizen Thursday, 27 June 2013 06:26 AM

    Good show!
    Let us have a new constitution these guys call for:-
    Only Buddhism allowed in this country
    No other religions or places of religious worship (then there will be no conversions or places to get converted
    No Bars, no places to sell alcohol including kasippu
    No night clubs or caroke bars
    No animal of birds slaughter (including cattle, pigs, chicken etc)
    Kudu?? decision to be taken later

    Why not try it for one year under a "parivasa" government?

    amila Wednesday, 26 June 2013 12:22 PM

    How many fish stalls you passed by on your protest from kiri vehara to colombo?
