Maha Sangha led by the Most Venerable Udugama Sri Buddharakkitha Mahanayake Thero of the Asgiriya Chapter is staging a "Sathyagraha" in front of the Sri Dalada Maligawa today.
The sathyagraha is being held to invoke the blessings of the Triple Gem for Sri Lanka’s victory and the government led by President Mahinda Rajapaksa against the campaign being mounted against the country at the United Nations Human Rights Council.
The Mahanayake Thero further added that all citizens should come together despite colour, creed or political party to stand up for the country.
Meanwhile, Arch Bishop His Eminence Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith expressing his views regarding the current situation states that the best answer Sri Lanka can provide to allegations levelled by the international community is to implement the recommendations made by the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission as soon as possible.
In a communiqué was issued on behalf of His Eminence by the Arch Bishop’s Current Affairs Inquiries Committee Chairman Rev.Cyril Gamini Fernando.
