Heroes have not emerged among the political leaders who had erected barbed wire fences around temples and, those who conspired with international elements to betray the motherland, said President Mahinda Rajapaksa at the Presidential Secretariat yesterday (16) during the presentation of Punya Bhoomi title deeds to temples which have been built on the State lands.

An era has dawned where the inheritance of the nation can be used for development.

All those who love the country and respect our history must join hands to build the nation, said the President.

He added that those who were involved in erecting barbed wire fences around Buddhist temples depriving religious freedom of the people and Buddhist monks are now preaching about Dasa Raja Dharmaya.

The Maha Sangha is always in the forefront to protect and promote people friendly policies. The blessings of the Maha Sangha helped to free the country from terrorism, the President stated.

The Pirith Noola tied around the soldiers by the Maha Sangha gave them unprecedented courage and fortitude in their fight against terrorism. President Rajapaksa said the Maha Sangha did not leave the temples or villages when they were attacked by terrorists.

The Maha Sangha in these areas did not get alms on time. Their lives were miserable due to terrorism. The Government has implemented a project to develop temples in such areas in honour of their service to the society at difficult times, he said.
