Mannar bishop cannot be allowed to fuel hatred

Minister Wimal Weerawansa says he is asking bishop of Jaffna Rev. Rayappu Joseph by the name of God not to further fuel hatred or sabotage country’s peace.

Thirty one northern catholic clergy, including the Mannar bishop, have issued a very serious statement, claiming war crimes in Sri Lanka, contrary to the statement by the catholic bishops, led by the archbishop, says the minister.

Speaking at a function in Pepiliyana Sunetradevi Pirivena today (Mar. 06), Mr. Weerawansa said the northern bishops’ statement could be considered a support to the US and western countries which are seeking an opportunity to act against Sri Lanka.Ven. Prof. Bellanwila Wimalaratana Thera said it was a grave injustice to level war crimes charges against the president and the war heroes.
