Mahanayakes say don’t gather during Vesak
The Mahanayake Theras of the four Chapters has requested the general public not to gather for festivities during the upcoming Vesak season.
Issuing a statement today (6) the Mahanayake Theras said that in this Vesak season it is our responsibility to help strengthen the minds of all Sri Lankans who were affected by the attacks on Churches.
Therefore further the people should seek and follow the guidelines given by the security forces when organizing religious and other programmes and it is the responsibility of the government to provide sufficient security to those programmes.
It also states that the lawmakers ignoring the political differences should work as one towards eradicating this terrorist threat from the country.
