SET FIRE ON HOMAGAMA CHURCH IS A BARBARIC ACT

SARATH JAYASIRIWARDENA, MONTREAL, CANADA

Last sunday Group of barbarians attacked, ransacked , destryed statues and set fire to the furniture at St.Micheal the Archengel's church in Katuwana,Homagama.

Government should publicly condemn this attack and take immediate steps to stop these type of barbaric acts and punish those culprits. These culprits three times attacked this church since last year and so far police failed to arrest the attackers.

As a Sri Lankan and a Buddhist I strongly condemned these attacks. Our government should rebuild the church from the public funds and condemn these type of acts. In the free world each and every person has the right to choose their own religion according to their belief. Eventhough the majority of Sri Lankans are Buddhists, so far we all Buddhists, Catholics , Muslims and hindus were practicing our religious rights without any harresments and it should continue the same. We should not let any religious groups to create a religious war.

Some extremist movement might be behind this attacks and government's special attention should required to stop this before it spread around the country. Otherwise Sri Lanka will face international condemnation.
