The former President said that his party stands for unity among religions and all communities.

Rajapaksa also noted that religious unity among communities can be seen in local villages.

  1. Keep talking about religion and ignore the knowledge. Eventually, you will pay a high price. If the majority of young people are wasting their time in temples and mosques foreign powers and radicals will continue to destroy the country. The best way to measure the country’s knowledge is see where most of the young people are spending their time. Why Middle East was destroyed by the West? Why Sri Lanka is having blood baths since the independence? I bet most of the young people are in the Middle East and Sri Lanka are in Mosques and temples.
