Akon respects Buddhism

  • 23 Mar 2010 13:50:44 GMT

    Akon can`t be too bad when compared to some of our great MP`s, Ministers and other big wigs.

    They have done lot worse than what this guys has done.

    Some people really love to live under their little rocks!

    grow up fidiots!!

    What Akon or whoever thinks is their goddamn business! And in their countries it`s neither illegal or insensitive.

    It`s pathetic that some madayans think Akon coming to SL aint gonna help building the image of SL.... quite laughable!!

    The free PR generated on this event alone is worth in millions!

    And it`s not like we`re selling the country to the man or letting him insult our ways... btw that sorta thing is done on daily basis by our politicos!

    You can`t consider all ups and downs of a singer or artist when you invite for a show. If somebody has not respected to a religious leader or group of pelple is not a matter for musical show or play

    These people need to get a life....I saw that video and the statue is hardly visible in the background, and I dont think he intentionally decided to offend the buddhist people. I just saw an article that said the government denied his visa, what a shame...He could have promoted Sri Lanka. There is no hope for Sri Lanka when a simple situation like this was handled the way it was...

    [I saw that video and the statue is hardly visible in the background]

    You have either not watched the video OR you have concentrated too much on bikini models dancing in front of the statue.

    [I dont think he intentionally decided to offend the buddhist people.]

    If it was not done intentionally, he can simply admit that publicly.

    He has done this already !

    I honestly don`t think he is desrespecting buddhisum in this Video. The statue is just in the background for around 10 seconds. I don`t even think the statue is at the same building even.

    [ Lasantha Samarasinghe of Platinum Entertainment, the organization behind the Akon concert, stated that these claims are an attempt at tarnishing the image of Sri Lanka and will jeopardize the country s future prospects in bringing down international artists. ` ]

    BS,

    Why you cannot find artists, that is why this kind of people should be invited to Sri Lanka.

    I think, he did that Video in order to satisfy some one else`s needs and he screwed up.

    NOw, they may use US govt`s help.

    Some one from State Depart of Some one else may force the SL govt to give Visa again.

    SL govt should stand by it`s decision.

    As a result of protest made by Catholics, general public miss the chance of seeing the movie The Da vinci code. Then why the heck we get down this American basket who disgraced lord Buddha. Did this MF or his tarts danced naked before Jesus?

    It is glad to see that this basket does not given visa by the government.

    We buddhists are very too democratic and too timid as Lord Buddha thaught us to tolarate. That is why we id not want to kill this AKON beast. But for our own safety and our own dignity that we should not allow this donkey to come to our country. As far as as artists are concerned that they should respect all the religions and nations equally. Because there is no religion or cuultural barriers for artists. But if any artist is resoting to cheap entertainment then he shuld be treated as a donkey. And AKON is a donkey.
