The Batticaloa Campus which was in the centre of controversy after the Easter Sunday attacks in 2019 will be acquired by the government shortly, Minister of Education Professor G.L. Peiris told Parliament yesterday. 

Minister who was responding to an oral question raised by SJB MP Dr. Kavinda Jayawardena in the House said the government does not intend to allow the Batticaloa Campus to function as a private entity. “We do not intend to allow the Batticaloa Campus to function as a private entity. We will affiliate it to another state-owned university. However, we have not decided as to which university it will be affiliated to,” the Minister said.   

“The government has also decided to increase the university intake. We increased the intake to 40,000 this year. Therefore Batticaloa Campus will be used in line with this policy,” he added.   

Responding to a supplementary question raised by the SJB MP as to whether there is any move to ban teaching Sharia Law in Sri Lanka, the Minister said government will continuously monitor the content of courses taught in private universities. “We will also scrutinize the foreign preachers who come to Sri Lanka before granting visas,” he also said.  (Yohan Perera and Ajith Siriwardana)

    Most importantly shut down 50% of the Mosques and request Arab countries to reduce their Embassy staff in Colombo by 50%.

    If Sharia law causes problems to society here, then why promote its teaching?

    Great news. All these disasters had happened when jungle laws ruled the country. One country one policy.

    Due to presure from Middle East countries, we forced to accept all dirty shits. At least wake up now

    Ronnie Bugger Sunday, 29 November 2020 12:24 PM

    This 'joker' is using the Batti university take over as a smoke screen to cover up his 'failed' school reopening facade. Damn crafty move.
