This just in: Akon postpones Sri Lanka show, Justin Bieber's manager arrested


Akon (Reuters/Lucy Nicholson)


  • Tween idol Justin Bieber's manager was arrested Wednesday for allegedly failing to help thwart a fan frenzy at a Long Island mall last November that sent five to the hospital. Scott "Scooter" Braun faces charges of reckless endangerment and criminal nuisance ... because police say he ignored their plea to send messages on Twitter telling crowds the appearance had been canceled. A record company exec has also been charged, the Associated Press reports.
  • Akon has put off a Sri Lanka concert after one of his videos -- with bikini dancers in the vicinity of a Buddha statue -- triggered riots this week. The singer issued an apology Wednesday. But officials from the island nation told the AP he would not get a visa.

    There is no Buddhism in Sri Lanka or Myanmar. In one place, Buddhist monks were on the road advocating the war and dancing with wolves.

    Other one, Buddhist monks were massacred in scores.

    These are the two countries which follow Theravada Buddhism in that region.

    There is Budhism, Hinduism and Islam side by side well tolerated in Srilanka.Just like in the USA, you find religious fanatics of all persuations.
    Nobody killed anybody for relgious reasons there.
    Only some are extremely ethnocentric, the
    defeated tamil tigers for instance.
    They expelled all muslims and killed all sinhalese when they held territory.
    Tamil diaspora elements funded that killings.

    Englands milliband has this fantacy to resurrect tigers . He wants to undermine Indias progress using tamil extremists in India.
    They mudsling and defame Srilanka everyway possible and unimaginable.
