    All idiot commentators, why are you all feeding a troll like Ali Jinnah? I thought we Sri Lankans take pride in being some of the most intelligent people in the planet (of course with the exception of the people we send to Parliament). Can you all please stop replying to this Ali Jinnah and hold your intelligence high (that has sunken to your buttocks at the moment) for a moment for goodness sake.. This so disappointing fellow citizens, we are behaving like the damn Mervin Silva and our transport minister.. WTF

    In common RELIGION (Buddhism,Islam, christian, Hindu or any stuff) is the major ideological threat for the mankind in this era. These religions must be confined to a certain level in a society to protect the humanity.

    Madhura – August 11,

    You got to know that Buddhism have been looked after always by the Ven.Monks with yellow rob, you go back to the history and clarify with your forbears, Buddhism must be secured upon the security of Sinhalese nation and Sinhalese must be secured upon the security of Buddhism

    People who were living in this country all they were Buddhist, after invades of Portuguese,Holland, British then only it was destroyed and they propagate their religion.

    You may be having good Muslim friends even I may have more than you, but I realized why they make friendly with us, just only to settle everywhere and make use of you all for their business, you just working as some administrative supporter to move with majority of Sinhalese, even if you are a partner with their business one day they will drop you.

    Try to make it realize if you are a real Sinhalese otherwise definitely you will be cursed by your children’s by another 20-25 years time.

    Buddha correctly predicted that buddhism will be destroyd by infidels.

    You don’t need to worry about correction of my grammar, our history go back to 2500 yrs and we had well education and we don’t care about English like you. you idiot bloody pig have only oil, but you should keep it mind you are Sri Lankan and not from oil country, live with this culture remove overcoat and cassock which suites for Saudi Arabians and live with respecting to Sinhalese people who are surveyed you all.

    Again I’m warning you don’t allow me to insult who made out you. we were commiserates to your forbears from the history and we were misled, same thing happenning now

    See whats happenning around the world, you all are dieng due to dishonest, try to be honest, see what’s American and Western countries doing in Middle East, same thing in the other regions as well. don’t let us to put you all hell.

    We never Thirsty of blood like you, Buddha has given us noble precepts to follow, but if you all trying to invades this country (whoever… Tamils or Muslims) then we are required to save this country, wherever it’s any terror attack then blood can be dropped from both the party.

    You like wild animals and not suite live like humans, let your children’s to study other religions then difinitely they will curse you for what they were practicing.

    Still I believe Allah is a real god and he has given we all good, but you converted it verse and practicing.

      Isaipriya committed suicide and her body was used by the shameless tigers to create a Global Tamil Spring. The tigers who showed ‘Lion of the Desert’ to its cadres to make them suicide bombers, later used the tactics shown in ‘300 Spartans’ to provoke Tamils after the tiger-flush. This time their tactics utterly failed even after showing bodies of Isaipriya and cub Bala worldwide. Because, the Tamils worldwide have seen the ‘Meet the Spartans’ now.

      Your intention of creating a Muslim-Buddhist war would not materialize because majority of Muslims and Buddhists do not take their respective religions seriously in Sri Lanka. Those who take it seriously will settle their differences through few stones and clubs, and not through machine-guns and shells.

      So, Fathimas are safe. Better luck next time!
