    The RajaPassa government is shooting itself in the foot by letting incidents like this to take place…the world is watching and its the GOSL who is getting egg on its face. Every man and woman of voting age in the North who lost a loved one due to SL army artilary or had a loved one vanish after they surrendered to the armed forces, is not going to vote for the UPFA. So this election violence is futile. RajaPassas best bet is to try to bribe or intimidated the PC members into crossing over after they win on the 21st.

      If you have lived by the sword you have to be prepared to die by the sword. How many politicians did the LTTE murder? No one was hurt so move on to the next stone throwing incident.

They will have to face justice for everything they’v caused. We are behind you madam. Keep fighting until these Sinhala racist government and its regime is fully dismantled. We Tamils have been through the worst of everything, don’t let some buggers put you off track. God bless

    This is an act of state terrorism by the Govenment of Sri lanka.

    From 1974 to 1983 the GOSL, it’s armed foces and police comited very much more acts of terrorism, compared to the Tamil armed groups. Many sinhalese in Sri lanka are aware of this fact. But some of them are in denial.

    others know this fact, but lie through their teeth. Just like how they lie through their teeth, when asked if the GOSL comited war crimes and killed around 40 thousand Tamil civilians in 2009.

    I accept that LTTE also comited war crimes in 2009.

      ‘I accept that LTTE also comited war crimes in 2009.’

      Very generous of you. Prior to 2009, did they murder any children by slitting their throats as they cowered in fear?

    Why should the government stop anyone standing for elections.We are a democratic nation,aren’t we?
    The decision Of Mrs Ananthy Sasitharan is commendable.
    Here lies the determination and the will of the Tamil people.

    Do we wonder why such aspiring candidates do not want to take the UPFA
    ticket in the north ?

    If the government did their job right – in todays time after the war ended and the government applauding themselves that they took the Tamils out of the LTTE clucthes and the pre election scenario unfolding it does not support this theory.

    Further why is the army out running amock? These are the WAR HEROS who were supposed to have brought Peace to the north.
    We have been told repeatedly that this goernment has brought PEACE to the Tamils.

    The government and the south is jittery.Through intimidation the government thinks they can muzzle the Tamils spirit.It does’nt look like it.Does it.

    Can the south muzzle the BBS.Look at the pic.They in their budhist monks robes with so much hatred,anger and ready for a fight with their arms raised.

    Dissapointed on behalf of the “true” budhists of SL.
    On the other hand they are squeaking once in a while that something must be done to these guys.Up untill now they are only writing.Will you all go in a delegation to MR to order these ‘guys’ into the Temple barracks so that they can do their teaching of Budhism?

    Budhism is not the – ‘We Singhalese are the Keepers of Budhism in Sri Lanka’.
    Does this mean no one from another ethnic race can follow the teachings of Budha?

    Too bad you guys killed the spreading of Budhism in Sri Lanka by your vile thinking and actions.
    Wake up and put on your thinking caps.

      Hannah, you are asking the Sinhalese to wake up and put their thinking Caps on. The majority Sinhalese are up, unable to be counted and you know why? These Sinhalese have their thinking Caps on and the Chinthanaya Buggers and Bitches have no Caps but only their Satakaya, to hang themselves when the time comes. Sad that there are no Human Suicide Bombers today as they would have come handy to eliminate this Junta.
