In view of the several incidents leading to religious disharmony which
took place recently the Government should
consider to appoint a commission to examine the causes and evolve a
system to nip in the bud such unenviable situations.
Among the issues which should receive the attention of such an inquiry
are :

1 The growth of aggressive and violent religious movements in Sri Lanka.
2  The role played by the foreign organizations in assisting such movements.
3 Dissemination of violent religious contents  in the educational
institutions.
4 Unethical religious conversions leading to tensions among religious
groups.
5 To formulate and implement a set of regulations pertaining to the
location of places religious worship
6 To set in motion  a procedure for a healthy dialogue among the
religious groups before an issue becomes volatile.
7. The Ministry of Religious Affairs and the law enforcing authorities to
act promptly and impartially to manage incidents to prevent violence.

    RANJITH !! GOOD THOUGHTS. BUT WHO IS GOING TO TAKE THE INITIATIVE ? MINISTRY OF RELIGIOUS AFFAIRS, I BELIEVE IT IS THE PRIME MINISTERS RESPONSIBILITY, IS KNOWINGLY OR UNKNOWNINGLY INVOLVED IN HEROIN IMPORTS. THEY HAVE NO TIME FOR BRINGING TOGETHER RELIGIONS.
