His Eminence Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith urges that government carry out proper investigations into the terror attacks that took place on Easter Sunday (April 21st).

Take proper legal action in this regard and do not let us take the law into our hands,” the Cardinal said, addressing a press conference held at the Catholic Archbishop’s House today (29).

He called on the political leadership of the country, regardless of their party politics, to reach a common policy concerning national security, he further remarked.

We are not aware of the measures taken by the presidential commission appointed to probe the terror attacks, nor do we know if the commission even assembled,” the Cardinal complained.

Cardinal Ranjith expressed his displeasure over how security matters are being handled presently.

    MR/JO to prepare a Security Report

    GOOD MOVE, but let it go FAR BEYOND the CURRENT CRISIS and address issues related to the DANGER of allowing different communities to adopt Laws different from the National Law!

    ONE COUNTRY, ONE PEOPLE, ONE LAW strictly ENFORCED should be the guiding principle!
