Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa had directed the Secretary of the Public Administration Ministry to stop any moves to remove references to race and religion in a birth certificate, Minister Wimal Weerawansa said yesterday.

Addressing an election rally in Kaduwela, Mr Weerawansa said he informed the President also over the move.

“I read in social media that the Registrar-General had told media that race and religion would not be mentioned in birth certificates in the future. I was astonished to see that. I told it to the Prime Minister and he advised the Ministry Secretary to immediately correct it. I told the President also that there is such a move,” he said.

He said those officials would not be allowed to put into practice such ideas under this leadership.

    In modern developped countries they don't even write down the sexe, because of LHTB Why write down race and religion. This is so backwarded and racist.

    Very Good Decision.

    Racism still exists in 2020. So sad to hear this news.

    Prakash Thursday, 23 July 2020 01:42 PM

    Why?

    Rosanna Thursday, 23 July 2020 02:08 PM

    Was to be expected from a bunch of two faced bigots who claim they want to rid the country of extremism.

    Modawansa, we are born free with no race or specially religion. So it need not be mentioned in the birth certificate. It just need to say who the parents are, place and date of birth.

    Gayatri G Thursday, 23 July 2020 02:21 PM

    When you are born you don't come with a brand name. Only in outdated and reactionary systems this is still implemented.

    Ranjit Thursday, 23 July 2020 02:22 PM

    yes, because those are the two trump cards you play year after year to divide the country and win some seats for you all and to swindle the country further

    Even to implement this proposal there should be Parliament approval represented by all parties

    roshan Thursday, 23 July 2020 02:28 PM

    Should we not all be recognized as Sri Lankans?

    Sando Thursday, 23 July 2020 02:44 PM

    Done by the Tamils/Muslims to destroy the Sinhala Race.

    Yehiya Thursday, 23 July 2020 03:39 PM

    Wait till election end.

    Boru Appuhamy Thursday, 23 July 2020 04:13 PM

    Include caste to add a further division.

    kumar Thursday, 23 July 2020 04:29 PM

    He is real modawansa. The existing birth certificates don't mention religion, then how can someone remove it. Also there is no move to remove ethnicity. These dump talks to get get some votes.

    ACA Thursday, 23 July 2020 04:49 PM

    This guys total political future lies with division, corruption and lies.

    Wijebahu Thursday, 23 July 2020 05:27 PM

    This is very good progressive decision. opportunists like weerawansa and pohottu gangs existence completely lies on divide and rule.

    RR Thursday, 23 July 2020 05:33 PM

    A person’s behaviour is guided by his caste than religion,education,etc.

    Are you happy now Mr Weerawansa?
