Colombo Archbishop Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith recently graced 45th anniversary of Ashwaththaraama Historical Temple at Thalgasyaaya, Akmeemana, Galle as Chief Guest and gave away awards to Daham Paasala students. The incumbent Monk of the Ashwaththaraama Temple at Thalgasyaaya, Ven. Matugama Gunarathana Thero chaired the event.

Bishop of Galle Diocese Rev. Raymond Wickremesinghe, Shiysamopali Chapter Chief Monk Ven. Uduwalagama Sri Mahinda Naayaka Thero and the members of the Sanga Community were also present.

Addressing the event, Cardinal Ranjith said:

“This blessed land of ours today has turned out to be a playing field of reckless murderous gangsters and killers of precious human life. Our motherland, the land of our birth was soaked with innocent blood when the murderous terrorists blasted bombs killing and injuring hundreds of devotees present at religious places on Easter Sunday. The reason for this state of affairs is crystal clear. It is nothing but the lack of discipline among our politicians and they have created that unfortunate situation, the country experienced.

We are of the view that the terrorist bomb attack on Easter Sunday was not something that came out in haste, all of a sudden. But it was an act carried out after long years of planning. We also do not know whether it was a plan within or outside of our country. But the attack though aimed at the Catholics and Christians churches, its impact was not limited to that religious sector but the impact of the attack was felt in and out of the entire country.”
