Wahabbism and Quasi Courts should be banned in Sri Lanka as it is recommended by the report of the Presidential Commission which probed the Easter Sunday attacks, MP Venerable Rathana Thera told Parliament yesterday.  

The Thera said those organisations which embrace Wahabbism, such as All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama should be probed and banned.  

“The PCoI probing the Easter Sunday attack has revealed that the Jamiyyathul Ulama Organisation had embraced Wahabbism,” the Thera said.  “All politicians and even Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith should support the move to ban Wahabbism and quasi Courts. Quasi Courts had prevented Sinhalese who had married Muslims to seek legal redress from normal courts,” he said.  The Thera also opposed the recommendation made by the Presidential Commission to ban Bodu Bala Sena. No Sinhalese organisations staged violence in this country to date,” he said.
