Buddhists protest in front of Bangladeshi mission in Lanka
Colombo: Several Buddhist monks marched in front of the Bangladeshi High Commission here o Thursday to protest against the attacks on the community in that country.
Activists of 'Bodu Balasena' (Buddhist force) marched to the Bangladeshi mission to handover a petition asking for protection for Bangladeshi Buddhists.
"We Buddhists have been keeping silent on the injustice and harassment by Muslim extremists", Reverend Galagodatta Gnanasara, a scholar monk said.
Police Superintendent Ajith Rohana said that a protestor was arrested for throwing stones at the mission and causing damages to a glass window.
