    Nothing unusual after that massacre they did in the No Fire Zone and renegaded on the promise that none will be harmed!

    The most belligerent of Buddhists I have seen.

    In fact, they give a new meaning to Buddhism that Buddha never preached!

    Who cares what they do in their country as long as Indian citizens are not involved.

    Well if this was done to provoke us, I don't think it really matters considering that the modern youth of India has come out of the divinity that Congress lavished on a person with funny imagination.

    To the Lankans: Do us a favor and just break that statue.... AND try something better than vandalize the statue of someone who's become a clown in his own country.

    Oh don't worry. As Ray sir himself once said - every people have their good and bad apples among them (ok, may be not in exactly same words) :)
    Just that the bad ones get more publicity. Not fair haan ... :(

    Don't give a crap about Gandhi personally, but its the fact that he has come to symbolise India abroad makes me pretty angry about our neighbours...

    Its not only that - but traditional buddhism (like what I assume Tshering follows) and was followed in the Orient is completely different to the buddhism preached in SL - very different indeed.

    Even the Japanese manage to hold on to the more purer form of buddhism than the Sinhalese have.

    If they dont care killing lakhs of women children and men including old ones, Why the heck would they care about a statue or India care about a statue ??

    More over it's Gandhi's statue who preached non-violence :p

    No one knows what happened.... do you?

    that statue was in Madakalapuwa... eastern province where majority of the population are Muslims and Tamils.... and also Sir Baden Powell's statue got damaged..... I think someone might figure who did that!

    No man, that's not good. Even I do not agree with Gandhi's philosophy, but he shoiuld be respected. That is what Indian traditions teach us. Even if you must disagree, disagree respectfully.

    Religion should not be blamed, blame the culprits. And aren't we a little early deciding who the culprit is?
