Silent protest staged in Colombo over attack on Methodist Church

A silent protest was staged in Colombo today over the attack on a Methodist Church in Anuradhapura.

Clergy and members of various Christian denominations attended the protest staged near the Colombo Methodist Church.

Leaders from other religions also extended support to the protest.

A group of about 25 people had threatened the Methodist Church Bishop Asiri Perera on Palm Sunday and then attacked the church with stones and firecrackers.

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe met the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Methodist Church Bishop Asiri Perera and others over the incident this week.

At the meeting he advised the IGP to take action over the attack and provide protection to the church. (Colombo Gazette)
