The government says it strongly and unequivocally condemns the recent violent incidents in Ampara and Digana, creating communal disharmony, where some places of worship, residences and businesses have been damaged.
 
A statement issued by the Director General of Government Information Sudarshana Gunawardena says that the government also condemns the hate and mischievous misinformation campaigns carried out by some, especially via social media targeting the Muslim community in particular and others as well, with the clear objective of creating disharmony among communities and inciting violence.
 
The government urges every citizen of Sri Lanka to desist from falling prey to such hate and misinformation campaigns.
 
As a country that had suffered by acts of violence for nearly three decades, the Department said, “We as a nation should desist from the repetition of such”.
