    It is SL president should penalize the Government employees who had taken bribe to change her DOB to travel Saudi Arabia .

    The lapse is on the part of Foreign Employment Bureau for not carrying out their responsibility properly. Governor Central Bank is responsibility for focusing only on revenue by any means. Government is totally responsible for appointing incompetent officials.

    It would be ideal for this women to hold the boards as "STOP SENDING US AS SLAVES" in front of Foreign Employment Bureau.

    I feel if she is really found guilty she should accept the punishment

    Gunasena Tuesday, 09 November 2010 02:17 PM

    Oh! ALLAH. We feel she is really innocent. Save her life.

    Hats off to these real Sri Lankan men and women who had the backbone to do this protest opposite Saudi Embassy. Couldn't a single religious leader join this protest here?

    If you are really want to save the life of the poor girl do not
    take banners and go to streets it is only suitable
    to Sri Lanka.Follow the principles of muslims in
    Sri Lanka.She should get mercy in King's eyes.
    Pl.don't make the situation worse

    She is only a kid.

    Pravin Tuesday, 09 November 2010 04:12 PM

    What good would a religious leader do considering the fact that most of them don't really act in accordance with their faith? Also, how ridiculous is it that in one week we have people protesting against the death penalty in Saudi Arabia and in another part of Colombo, we have people endorsing the death penalty for drug offenders? There seems to be a significant and ever widening disconnect amongst the people. The public needs to calm down without just mindlessly protesting about everything - they weaken the significance of protesting by doing this.

    Well said ! Cant agree more

    Lets not forget the issue at hand...the wrongful punishment of a child. Imagine if this was your child.
