Catholic Archbishop, Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith today took a swipe at the western world on the human rights issue.
Speaking at St. Matthew’s Roman Catholic Church in Ekala, the Archbishop said that human rights has now become a religion for some western countries.
“They keep it on their heads and keep preaching to us saying human rights, human rights. Like it is something new,” he said.
The Archbishop said that those who speak about human rights are those who have no religion.
He said that if one follows a religion then there is no need for human rights.
The Archbishop urged the public not to be misled by what others say and to act wisely. (Colombo Gazette)
