Buddhists in this country have been compelled to confine Wesak this time mostly to its doctrines rather than exposition consequent to the aftermath of the Easter Sunday terrorist attacks.

Accordingly, the number of Wesak pandols, lanterns and Wesak Zones has been reduced.

However, Senior Professor of the Cultural and Oriental Study Unit of Kelaniya University, Induragare Dhammarathana Thera said that the true value of Wesak could be highlighted under these circumstances.

Meanwhile, Wesak Pandol industrialists complain that they have been affected badly as circumstances do not permit to display Wesak Pandals.

Addressing a media briefing held in Ambalangoda, Wesak Pandal industrialists’ convener, Kapila Thotawatta said that the government should intervene to redress their grievances.

Meanwhile The All Ceylon Basnayake Nilame Organization states that the security of the Kandy Esala Perahera is disputable this time.

The president of the organization, Gayan Heenkenda stated that his organization expects to discuss the matter with the President.
