The Colombo District Court today issued a stay order prohibiting the Narahenpita Abhayarama Temple being used for political activities.

The order was given after considering the case filed by a monk of the temple stating that political and trade union activities being carried out at the Temple was tarnishing the reputation of the temple. (Nimanthi Ranasinghe)

    It is all the way to the top of the sangha heirarchy - even the Asgiriya top priets involved in politics. Sad for pure Buddihism.

    Very good progressive move and it should cover all places of worship, including mosques.

    Keep the Buddhist priests out of politics and protests. It is an insult to Lord Buddha

    We should respect buddhist monks who safeguarded this country and the nation for many decades up to now.If they do not have right to protest against any major issue in this country who will come from outside to protest for our country. via DM Android App
