Speaker decries communalism and religious extremism

Speaker Karu Jayasuriya yesterday requested the people of all communities not to let the fire of communalism and religious extremism destroy the country and its future generation.

The Speaker issuing a statement over the recent incidents which are detrimental to peace and ethnic harmony said that all Sri Lankans should strive to build peace and harmony among all ethnicities.

“It is the duty of all citizens of the country to voice against communalism and religious extremism when the religious leaders and intelligent people in the country are also on the same stand against these two evils,” the statement said.

He said that those who extend support to fan the flames of communalism and religious extremism are traitors and they put the future generation at risk.

“There is no difference between those who are trying to ignite the flames of communalism and the terrorists who blew themselves up. The Speaker said local and foreign insidious forces are behind these nefarious elements and they should be brought to book.
