Minister of Justice, President’s Counsel Ali Sabry has pledged to bring an end to the issue of child marriages.

He mentioned this while paying a courtesy call on the Chief Prelates of Asgiriya and Malwatta chapters today (29).

All Sri Lankans have a responsibility and a duty to nurture Buddhism according to the Constitution, the Justice Minister pointed out.

We have to guarantee that regardless of the race or religions,” he said further.

During his visit to Chief Prelate of Asgiriya Chapter, Most Venerable Medagama Dhammananda Thera, the focus of the discussion fell on the issue of child marriages.

The Justice Minister stated that delegations representing Muslim women have met with him to bring his attention to the issue.

Calling on the Deputy Chief Prelates of Malwatta and Asgiriya chapters, Minister Sabry noted that in all societies there are those who hold extremist views.

We are looking at ways to select such individuals and rehabilitate them,” he continued.

However, the majority wants desperately to live together as the best Sri Lankans possible, the Justice Minister said further.
