Freedom of religion had been ensured in Sri Lanka, President Maithripala Sirisena at a religious ceremony held at Raddolugama Methodist Church this morning.

He said that Sri Lanka had been able to ensure the right that supports the freedom of individuals to follow any religion as spiritual concept was what assisted people to become disciplined and well-behaved.

However, President went on to say that despite the obvious physical development in the world, people’s spiritual dimensions had sadly collapsed.

    Religion is a private thing. So, there's no need to allocate government fund, ministries, etc, for that. Also, do not allow building any new religious construction or structure. There are enough of those in and around the country. And, also, declare rules to stop sound pollution by loudspeakers in mosques, temples, kovils, churches, etc.

    Sri Lanka's are very good at building temples, home and abroad. In the west, Sri Lankan's built or setup many temples than any other migrant communities.

    Mr. President, Why don't you visit Batticaloa, to see the real situation on the ground.?

    Absolutely correct, in this country citizens believe planting a statue and a loudspeaker is the correct form of observing a religion.

    NOW THE PROBLEM IS, HOW DO YOU SPECIFY THE MEASURING METHOD OF THAT FREEDOM...... ARE THERE DIFFERENT MEASURING INSTRUMENTS FOR DIFFERENT RELIGIONS.
