Mob attacks private broadcaster in Sri Lanka
Posted in Local News
COLOMBO, Sri Lanka – An employee says an unidentified gang has attacked the head office of a private broadcasting company in Sri Lanka. Three employees were injured in the second attack on the broadcaster in just over a year.
Shevan Daniel, an employee of Maharaja Organization, says about 200 people suddenly gathered Monday outside the office in the capital Colombo and threw stones at the building.
Daniel said he did not know who the attackers were or what their motive may have been.
Maharaja Organization has three television and four radio channels.
Last year, a group of armed men attacked its studio and transmission compound, tossing hand grenades, spraying the building with gunfire.

Goverment will be blamed for this. Anyone who sees this please remeber all is innocent proven guilty. How stupid do you think the Goverment is to attack MTV in the brink of Election. All people should see this clearly as attack from SF, UNP and JVP.
Some intersted party is attempting to gain attention of the western world by attacking institutions which westerners love. If Maharaja is broadcasting things that are not favorable to govt, do you think they will stop doing it because of a couple of stones on their building? I don’t think so; in fact Maharaja will show even more things not favorable to Govt after the incident.
President Mahinda Rajapakse, the Mandela of South East Asia who liberated Sri Lanka’s 20 million population from the clutches of terrorist TAMILS after 505 years, will bring about a new social order in the monolithic society that he intends to create.
President Mahinda Rajapakse, the Mandela of South East Asia who liberated Sri Lanka’s 20 million population from the clutches of terrorist TAMILS after 505 years, is on the threshold of making history.
There are many power-hungry persons who will do anything to achieve their desires; do not be fooled, people.
We Sri Lankans donot want US R&B singer Akon on our soil. If Maharaja trying to force this rubbish on to our land this is one of the ways we ask Maharaja to withdraw his crap !
Ps There are many other ways too
