TALIBAN IN HINGURAKGODA
CALAMITY OVER RELIGIOUS PROPAGANDA.
Residents of Nuwarawatte area of Hingurakgoda says that their children have been lured in to a Religious cult functioning in the area as a religious center, where they get brain washed to such an extent where they come home and dash all Buddhist statues on the floor.
Parents of these children have also lodged a complaint at the police that those who join this movement shout at the top of their lungs in the center as if possessed by a devil and those who run the center are also demanding them to permit their children to be taken away to a place called "Paradise" in Colombo, which is their main head quarters.
It is said that three people have been arrested by the Hingurakgoda police on the orders of the President for throwing stones at the Center and later the Hingurakgoda Magistrate released them on bail.
It is reported that a lady police officer, which refused to take down the complaint of the center about the alleged attack, has been suspended already.
Meanwhile Hingurakgoda Catholic Mission chief Rev. Fr. Calistus Mendis said that there is absolutely no truth in the claim that a Catholic church was attacked in Hingurakgoda and that his church has no connection what so ever with this center.
MY SON HAS GONE CRAZY AFTER JOINING THAT RELIGION.
K.G. Sisilina Fernando, mother of a young man in Minneriya, has complained to the police in tears that this Religious Center has made his son in to a fanatic who obeys every command of theirs and at times my son acts as if he is insane.
He follows every girl walking on the road and pleads with her to come to the Paradise with him. She pleaded with the OIC to help save her son from the people at the Center.
