Recommendations made by the Presidential Commission, which probed the Easter Sunday attacks should be implemented soon while more investigations should be carried out to determine as to who organised and facilitated the attacks, Archbishop of Colombo Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith said today.

Cardinal Ranjith who was speaking to the media after participating in the Black Sunday protest at St. Sebastian’s Church Katuwapitiya said the government should immediately implement the recommendations made by the Presidential commission.

The Commission had recommended action against certain people and this action should be taken without delay,” Cardinal Ranjith said.

It is also essential to carry out further investigations to determine who facilitated the attackers and who got them to carry out the Easter Sunday attacks,” he added.

We hope to see practical steps in this regard by April 21 this year,” he also said.

Pope Francis is currently touring Iraq and had discussions with Muslim leaders of that country. Therefore, global religious leaders are working towards bringing about religious unity. Sri Lanka should also follow and bring about religious unity,” he stressed.

Cardinal thanked everyone who worked towards making today’s Black Sunday a success including the Buddhist monks and members of Muslim communities.

Cardinal said this at the mass at St. Anthony’s Shrine Kochchikade and proceeded to Katuwapitiya Church to participate in the Black Sunday programme.  (Yohan Perera)

  1. Charles Says:

    Cardinal is unreasonable . Commission report is one thing , looking for the perpetrators of the crime is another thing. Cardinal should have the patience to allow the normal procedures to follow. It is the police and intelligence services which will have to carry out investigations. Cardinal is allowing reactionaries such as the Samagi Janabalavegaya, Janatha Vimukthi peramuna to mess up things in the country.

    Venerable Gnanasara thero of Bodu Bala Peramuna ha more sense in what he says, that above Saharan was the religious ideology. in 2014 it was a Buddhist Priest Madoluwave Sobitha thor who messed up a developing Sri Lanka, and this time again it will be the Buddhist Priests and the Cardinal who may mess up the country.
