Report on Christianity conversion
By Thush Sam
Dear All Sri Lankans,
After reading the below news article published by Sri Lankan Daily
News paper on 03/05/2005, anybody will be thinking that the attack
carried out by some set of people to the churches are wrong. Or anti
conversion bill (yet to be approved) is a useless thing. But in an
environment such as the countrys political parties are indirectly
supporting not to bring anti conversion law, we must think what has
left for the civilized people to do?
The different NGOs and human rights organizations are openly
safe guarding people who are destroying Buddhism, Sri Lankan culture
and stability of the peace in the country. At first they helped the
terrorism and now when the countrys economy goes down, they
started the Christianity conversion timely. Now the situation is such,
any government who come in to the power has to depend on large amount
of money that are given by these NGOs and human right organizations.
This is the stage indirectly NGOs and human right organization
are trying to take control of the existing government.
As per the human right organizations, they demand that the existing
government should ensure that the freedom of worship. Why cant
we ask them who disturb that closure first by converting to Christianity?
Today they dont even scared to issue kind of public statements
to convince readers that the attacks carried out against these work
are inhuman. Remember, youll are the culprits. Not the people
who went against Christianity conversions. The report indicates that
the pastor Priyanjith Perera was engaged in Tsunami relief work in
the area. In that case he shouldnt have any troubles, as he
and his church would have protected by tsunami-affected people in
the area. But nothing has happened like that. Pastors main job
was to distribute essential items to tsunami victims who is willing
to convert or already converted.
The National Christian Fellowship of Sri Lanka (NCFSL), the umbrella
organization representing the independent indigenous churches in Sri
Lanka, should be expelled for representing and allowing Christianity
conversions in Balapitiya and around the country. I would like to
know how many Muslims were converted in Balapitiya? The answer is
very few or none. In that case they have converted all Buddhist people
and their ultimate target is to convert all Buddhists. Dont
you think this is inhuman?
The countrys Buddhist monks should bring the anti conversion
bill immediately to avoid these attacks. The Christian church have
managed to delay bringing the anti conversion bill for the approval
by utilizing their money. I would like to ask all Buddhist monks,
what are youll doing living in the Buddhist country? This is
the time to leave all the political differences and get together as
Buddhist monks and fight against this Christianity conversions. If
not, tomorrow we may hear a pastor is killed and his church is burned.
As Sinhalese we did not attacked Tamils or Muslims until they attacked
As Buddhists we did not attacked until they started conversions.
