    This is the 21 century and this happens. With this mentality how can Sri Lanka progress. It is worse when it comes to voting at elections.

    Buddhist temple. That is why no information is given. If it was Christian and Islam, the organisers would be in remand by now.

    This type of fake healing sessions should be prohibited.just making money off the poor and weak minded. Whatever the religion these are fake. Know of a guy who left a good job and took to full time 'healing' , now traveling the world. Well off.

    Every religion has a moral responsibility to banish myths, superstitions and blind faith from all their congregations. Teach people to see things as they are.

    These frauds prey on desperate people but the law does nothing to stop them.

    Charged these spiritual healers under the law for medical treatment without licenses. Where are these GMOAs?

    Religion itself a myth there ain't nothing morale in it

    this tells that there are people who believes these spiritual leaders' healing more than the God. If you believe in God, don't let yourself being dragged this dump idea. People should not be religious fanatics. They should be spiritual and never become fanatics.
