UAF Sri Lanka vehemently condemns the Monks attack on the church in Weeraketiya.
It is regretful that it is done by the followers of so called peaceful Buddhism. It has been noticeable that growing fascism and racism among the Buddhist after the end of three decades war. There are well organised and funded groups operating openly around the country, working on flaring up violence against other religions other than Buddhism. Some are even rumoured to be backed by the fractions of the government ministers.
We ask the governing authorities in Sri Lanka including president to address this issue before any extensive human and property damage done by this fascist and racist groups of Sri Lanka.
As Weeraketiya is the birth place of the current president Mahinda Rajapaksa, we request him to prove his pledge of equal rights to all in his home town.
Let all civilised Sri Lankans Unite Against Fascism!
