    අැගට දැනෙන ආකාරයට ආමන්ත්‍රනය කරනවානම් බේරාගන්න පුලුවන්වෙයි. රජකාලේ උල තිබ්බේ කියලා හදන්න බැරිනිසා.

    Praying and worshipping is OK in accordance with your beliefs. But these stupid pastors need to stop misleading the poor people.

    Absolutely right. Government must take steps to shut down churches of theses rogue pastors.They make money from the poor peasants by false pretence using urban families as decoys to pretend they are blessed and sicknesses are cured by the church services.

    Time has come for Buddist and Chatholic priest to work out a solution to stop this unethical conversion. Innocent people are duped and provided with goodies and other form of inducement to convert. This should be stopped

    These are not catholics. These are crazy American Protestant Christian churches. The looniest of them all.

    Have faith in a supreme Power, but take medicine and precaution when there is a need. You don't go and stand in front a speeding train, because you trust god. This is insulting your faith.

    Hats off to dear wimal ellepola the govt should impose severe punishments to all such anti-Christ’s to evade spreading the virus.

    All these reports should be sans religeous prejuduce detrimental to co existence Yes strict punishment should be meted for violations. But reports should not point out religeous prejudice as reasons. Anyway it should also be met with strict penalties
