Cardinal condemns Minister’s statement
Archbishop of Colombo Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith is condemning a statement made by a government Minister who has suggested the country should “open more nightclubs and casinos to promote the tourism industry.”
Participating at a Mass held in Italy, the Cardinal said he regrets that the Minister who made the statement is a Catholic.
“Development is not making a number of buildings nor is it globalization, development happens when people improve themselves. In the past, politicians have destroyed the country. All politicians should resign and new people should take over the country as the present Politicians have shown their incompetence,” the Cardinal said.
The Cardinal further said that people still do not know ‘the real truth’ behind the Easter Sunday attacks.
