Buddhist Group Against Religious Harmony


It is reported by Qadijah Irshad that the Bodu Bala Sena (Buddhist Power Force) has critisised former Sri Lankan president Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga for promoting understanding between different religious and ethnic groups within Sri Lanka. A spokesman for the Bodu Bala Sena, Dilantha Withanage suggested that Bandaranaike was trying to ‘destroy Buddhism’ in Sri Lanka.

Kumaratunga has called for dialogue between different religious and political groups ‘to promote interfaith coexistence’.

The ‘South Asian Policy and Research Institute’ chaired by Kumaratunga, calls for ‘strict legal action against perpetrators of religious violence, which the government has so far failed to deal with. The organisation also recommends a 24-hour hotline for reporting religious violence and creating religious tolerance at school level.’
