Inter religious organisation protest against former President Chandrika.
The Inter Religious Organization for national harmony has protested against a statement made yesterday by former President Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga before a group of religious leaders.
Addressing a ceremony organized by South Asian Policy and Research Institute which was chaired by her, former President told yesterday that places of worship were attacked and things were getting out of hand in the country.
Addressing a media briefing held in Colombo this morning, Co-President of the Inter Religious Organization for Religious Harmony Professor Kamburugamuwe Vajira Thera charged the former President for her statement that claims no religious harmony in the country.
However former President Kumaratunga has also emphasized the need of an inter faith dialogue to promote religious harmony.
She stressed that she has all rights to express her views over the current issues in the country.
Meanwhile leaders of different religious denomination participated in the media briefing convened by the Inter Religious Organization for Religious Harmony on the theme of Geneva Human Rights sessions and the role of Sri Lankan citizen.
