    In north, at that time LTTE never disturb universities. Here it's otherwise. Seems like JVP is worse than LTTE.

    not at all Ruwanthi - i don't think there's much to envy about local unis now. The people are just annoyed with these stupid waste of time protests by hooligans

    Remove the monks from regular universities! There are two universities for monks: Pali and Buddhist University and Buddhashravaka Bhikku University. Restrict them to these universities where there is some Vinaya! Bring the much delayed Sanghadikarana act to allow senior monks to punish rowdy monks! Done!

    It seems lot of comments are against Student protests. Am I right thinking most of the people hating student protest are the people who had no luck of entering to the university? So they might be little bit jealous of uni students

    These days the clergy rarely say bana or preach.. They just get onto roads & behave worse than the ordinary people.. what a pity

    one way or the other they are all on the streets protesting over something and neglecting their Education which is main reason for entering the uni. whoever is behind all this has successfully executed a plan of total confusion and chaos in all universities.

    Unlike good old days, respect is not a right. it has to be earned.
