    @ nimal - who ever u are.. colomba hathe nonala hari me prashne gana duk wena eka gana prashnayakda? its because of people like you that the society deteriorates ...
    enough people are concerned about children in rural areas.. are u all saying that people shouldn't worry about animals..
    this world belongs to both humans and animals. ..
    you should learnt to respect that..and bloody hell if you can't .. just shut up and mind your own business when other people do..
    if you are so concerned about rural children i would like to see a protest on behalf of them happening here..people like you are those who just sit in your comfortable seats as if nothing is going wrong and just slander anybody you see fit...
    if u cant sympathize, pls no one will bother if you mind your own business.

    This is not about whether dogs have a right to live. If these women really care about hte dogs, they would see to it that the dogs are not living on the streets spreading disease amongst themselves and humans. Even human beings do not have the right to spread diseases to each other. These women should pay for dog shelters and dog catchers.

    Stray dogs didnt ask to be strays! People made them that way! why dont you understand that! and what harm so they do? other than bother the few people who dont like dogs! People do worse thing to people... i dont see you wanting to kill all the people who inconvinience your life?

    kolomba hathey nonalata gedera wena weda nethuwata.

    Sapumal Sri Thursday, 21 June 2012 05:12 AM

    I Propose that to set an example, each of these women should take at least 7 stray dogs to their homes and look after them. Then we also will join to support your cause !

    zava Thursday, 21 June 2012 05:05 AM

    Can you accommodate all Stray dogs @ your Home

    paksha Thursday, 21 June 2012 05:32 AM

    why only woman participation here?

    Wara Thursday, 21 June 2012 05:37 AM

    They love dogs !!!!!!

    Bobby Pereira Thursday, 21 June 2012 05:46 AM

    Because women have more wisdom and compassion than men.

    Is it better if human beings die of rabies or is it better for the dog to die? If it is better for human beings to die then don't kill dengue mosquitoes also. Both kill people.

    Marikkar Thursday, 21 June 2012 05:58 AM

    Look at the faces!!! No Symptoms of Sympathy! Just doing for fun!!!

    Dhanushka Sunday, 24 June 2012 12:42 PM

    you sir,
    are someone who really needs to get bitten by a rabid dog.

    Shiva Thursday, 21 June 2012 06:00 AM

    CRAZY.!

    Lalin Thursday, 21 June 2012 06:10 AM

    Dogs on the road are a menace to every one using the road. Can we request the ladies who are demonstrating to come up with a solution? The solution should result in no dogs on the road!

    gayan Thursday, 21 June 2012 10:40 AM

    i understand that you are not an animal lover

    gayan Thursday, 21 June 2012 10:38 AM

    actually they ARE the people who run these shelters. I guess you are not someone who would do such a thing

    ind Thursday, 21 June 2012 06:13 AM

    OK. If you bring all the dengue mosquitoes I will kill all of them at once !!

    alfreda de silva Thursday, 21 June 2012 06:27 AM

    so you advocate getting rid of all stray living beings? More proof this is NOT a Buddhist country

    alfreda de silva Thursday, 21 June 2012 06:31 AM

    what about all those people who kill other people, do they deserve to live or die?

    Jan Thursday, 21 June 2012 07:15 AM

    Atleast they seem to be doing something, other than bickering about it online.

    Silva Thursday, 21 June 2012 07:26 AM

    If you possible to take time to do something for children in rural area. it would be great........

    shahan Thursday, 21 June 2012 07:32 AM

    I suppose you spoke to one of those women then? Or else how would you know if they were doing it for fun? Grow up mate. Don't judge a picture, unless you were in it.

    Jan Thursday, 21 June 2012 07:34 AM

    This is a protest for the dogs. If you wish to start a protest and do something for the children in rural areas, please do so. No one is stopping you.
