    Bitter truth, Sri Lanka is Sinhalese Buddhists Nation still . its Nationality is Sinhalese culture… There are other races (tamils, Muslims and many more ) we consider them as races not as Nationality. Problem here is other races dont want to accept Sinhalese Buddhists Nation and its Sinhalese culture.. They always make problems and demanding unnecessary things which are contradict with Sinhalese Buddhists Nation.. Since ancient times, Sinhalese kings were never try to invade neighboring countries to spread Buddhism.. But we had to face many wars eliminate invaders who were tried to destroy Sinhalese Buddhists Nation. Since 1505 we are facing so many invasions which are targeting Sinhalese culture and Buddhism.. Up to some extend they were succeeded , and our nation facing out come of damages. Peoples should understand where they are live in and where to they belongs

      Buddhism is not a Sri Lankan religion. it too was imported from outside (India) Sri Lanka was not one kingdom. it was unified under the colony so if u prefer pre-colonial times then i suggest you work on dividing the country into the 9 kingdoms that existed as before.
      I suggest u re-sit grade 8-10 classes and learn history well this time.

      fools like u are the disgrace for this country!

        Neither Christianity nor the Buddhism a Sri Lankan religion too. But the both the religion came here in different forms and spread in different ways. Christianity never accepted as religion of Sri lanka but Buddhism does, even in 1815 it was well affirmed . I think you ha read wrong book there were many occasions that Sri Lanka or Lankadeepa, was under one king and as unitary country. Can I suggest you some books to read ?/

            Christians invaders (I’M NOT POINTING TO INNOCENT PEOPLE WHO PRACTISE RELIGION ) dont do simple things like attacking isolated location like a temple or a Kovill,instead they select countries and civilizations to attack. Those Christians (invaders ) were responsible on destruction were wrought in this land since 1505. They had destroyed our hill country, ethnic balance, Culture, civil administration and peaceful life of people, Burnt out faddy lands and property .. They changed our education by replacing missionaries… Still exists and making tons of “kalu Sudda”… Why such peace loving Christians came to east.?? Did they on a picnic of exploring the world ? or it just habbit of them ?? crusades started by them lost millions of lives of innocent people throughout the world.. Do you want more to read??,,, Would you read world history at least if you are allergic to Sri Lanka’s history..

      Tamils have been SL since the 10th century n Muslims too have been here for a long time. Just because a person or his ancestors have chosen a different religion in the past doesn’t make them less sri lankan. Yes we suffered from invasions but we all fought against them together. Today we are fighting amongst ourselves instead of moving forward together. Buddhism has thrived in SL for so long not because Monks spread hatred, but because they spread the peaceful message of the Lord Buddha. Today the most damage to Buddhism is being done by these monks. This is not what the Lord Buddha would do. Protect Buddhism by practising Buddhism not violence!

        Thanks for your Support for Tamil Eelam in Sri Lanka. Wish there are many like minded people like you.

        The population of Sri Lanka is 20 million, where did you get 60 million from?

    Is sinhala Buddhist modaya wait 16 years for attack this church..LTTE said sinhalis are foolish and can win war with easy.. and Tamil believed it.now Colombo amarica Christian said budhist are so weak because western pressur.this attacks all normal villagers. truth is noiseluss sinhala Buddhist waiting right time to attack sri Lankan Catholic not by throu stones but by econmicaly and politically.
    CT become media partner of BBS because this all artical help create massive funds from overseas.truth is always better. Sinhala Buddhist last 30years spaind for wait war victory.now they start background making for massive economic boom.
    Buddhist try their best keep out Muslim and Christian so one day they can say they are the winner same as war vectory.Catholic must creat economic boom for every sri Lankan with help of west.if we think everything can do by pressure the sinhala Buddhist by using west we can fight another 30 years until sinhala Buddhist won or they leave this country.

    Baboon, Your father (Mr. Baboon from Thumpane) has misspelt your name. Ask your mother whether she visited Tumpane nine months before you were born. Anyway, would you accept if the Buddhist Temples are attacked in Christian countries like France, Germany, United Kingdom, U.S.A., Australia or in any Muslim country. All those who approve your mentality are real BABOONS. We, the non-Buddhists will come forward to save our innocent Sinhala Buddhist women from these Baboons wearing skins with saffron coloured firs. Glad that you have chosen an appropriate name for yourself including those who approve these acts. In your own language we say – HUjja KAjja GAjja NIrajja NGajja.

    What a sad little bunch of people hiding behind robes and bunch of fools following them. These people have forgotten that what ever the religion they follow, they are all still Sri Lankans. These blind people don’t follow Buddhism, they follow hatred and spread hatred. They bring shame to our country. One day their hatred will consume them. Sad about those unintelligent people who think that Buddhism was created in Sri Lanka. Let me remind you that Buddhism and all other religions were brought here from outside of this country.Everybody has a right to follow their own beliefs, anyone who tries to block someone is misusing their god given freedom to live.

    Sri Lanka does not belong to Sinhala Buddhists. She does not belong to Muslims. She does not belong to Christians. She does not belong to Tamils.

    However, Sinhala Buddhists, Muslims, Christians, Tamils… they all belong to Sri Lanka.

    No one owns the country. But the country owns them.

    By the way.. if a Tamil Hindu converts to Buddhism.. will he or she be called a Tamil Buddhist ? Tamil Sinhalese ? Buddhist Tamil ?

    Finally the will to decide on the philosophy of life and the religion to be followed rests with the individual human being. He has (should have) the freedom to choose. That freedom has to be respected. If not the humans are relegated to the animal species where territories are fiercely guarded based on species categories.

    The earth was meant for all human beings regardless of race, religion and ethnicity. The sooner that people and governments recognize this the better it will be for the human race.!

      Oh ya! What a miss? You think people were blind then not to see what happened around them?
      How do you know there were killing and suffering to spread the religion when no Vedio is available ?

      The Dutch killed or persecuted the Catholics and British too persecuted Catholics but later stopped. Sri lankans willfully converted to Christianity for their own good, to get a good education and a government job were the main reasons. Both Hindus and buddhists did this voluntarily.

      Missionaries started schools and hospitals and helped people. But when We regained independence all could ‘ve reverted back to their previous religion but they didn’t because many were true faith in Christianity.

      material benefits will not hold a person to a religion only spiritual benefits will. If people are converted as alleged by these monks by unethical means they will never continue in the faith when the benefits are gone. I’m sure no church can afford to give all the converts a monthly dole to keep them in church. In fact the opposit happens these converts will have to give their tithes to the church.

        CSM: all the historical stuff is fine but we must remember that some of our opportunistic leaders did indeed look for the main chance. The BANDARANAIKE clan were original supporters of our colonial masters and embraced the Church of England in order to suck up to the colonial honchos. Sir Solomon was a ‘very good’ friend of Governor Sir Joe West Ridgeway and was invited to be godfather to little Banda who was christened….wait for it….SOLOMON WEST RIDGEWAY DIAS Bandaranaike. How’s that for sycophancy. It paid off because SWRD got into Oxford on the nod but he repaid the British by changing not only his Oxford bags for the arya-sinhala but his religion too (he became a Buddhist) when he returned and saw the opportunity that awaited him in a free Sinhala-Buddhist Lanka. Then, we must not forget the JAYAWARDENA’s too, who were very partial to the British. EWJayawardena was particularly pro-British and Church of England, and all his children were given Christian names – his eldest son was named JUNIUS RICHARD and had an English governess to tutor him (and his siblings at Park House). JR attended the Church at Polwatte too till he later saw the opportunity that being a Sinhala-Buddhist would bring, and changed. Don’t worry, there were many others as well who took the chance to help the colonial invaders, particularly the Dutch and British, and history has them nicely hidden away to save embarrassment in these times.

      Reality: Be careful what you wish for. It was long before the white colonials arrived that the Buddha and Mahinda came calling and persuaded our tree worshippers to take up Buddhism and start the ball rolling. For once, it was the white man who followed the indian.

    Many of the comments are nasty and distasteful, some are downright confusiong too. Let’s consider some issues, starting from the present. In the 64 years of indipendence, our land of Sri Lanka has never experienced such wanton deamage, thuggery, killings, brutality and property damage like we are witnessing today.
    In the past few years,a descent into corrupt politicts, utter ignorance(the majority of intellectuals left the land from the 1950’s on)The political and financial corruption began to bsystematically escalate from the Senanayekas, to Bandaranayekas, Jayawardana, and has now reached it’s pinacle in the most crooked of all Sinhala Buddhist family of the Rajapaksas. Never has our Nation witnessed a bunch of hoodlum liars, who are systematically ripping off their own country and people.
    It is through good information, that criminals in prison were released in the nights, provided robes to serve out their prison sentences in a do or die manner. A through bacground check is not possible as we have a corrupt judicial system.The country is in dire straits and financially bankrupt, therefore the easy diversonary tactic are the Christians and Muslims. Who pays for all the property damages? Hospital bills etc? Under the Sri Lankan Constitution, the rights of each citizen is free to exercise his or her choice, in life, religion and living to enhance the individual quality of life. So, we are at this stage in our land, not living in a democracy, but an advancing dictatorship. The land of Sri Lanka “does not belong in any exclusive way to any single race”, we are Sri Lankans as that songs prepared for the CHOGUM, sung by all classes of young people amply speak. The President himself sanctioned this unity (albeit it is another lie by him). What we are now witnessing are – The blatantant cover up of the All Ceylon Buddhist Association (from the early 1950’s to present), the rampant hypocricy of Buddhism,which is now a lauging stock in the world,and a country of absolute disgrace in the whole of the Asian Conference. (Compare the rise and quality of life in Vietnam as an example). Let’s not get history mixed up and make us look a further bunch of idiots. More to follow later.
