Those who condemn other religions and speak against other faiths are only bringing disgrace to their own religion President Mahinda Rajapaksa said while pointing out extremists bring no justice to any religion.
People who follow their religion properly should be fair and justifiable to others President said adding that it is the teaching of every religion.
President made these observations while attending the rededication ceremony of the Galle Fort Methodist Church today (04).
The renovation of the Church was carried out by the Sri Lanka Navy as a goodwill gesture on the instruction of President Rajapaksa.
Renovation and rededication of the church is a fulfillment of a national duty, President said. This is a good opportunity to showcase the religious harmony that prevails in Sri Lanka, he said.
President thanked everyone who contributed in renovation efforts irrespective of their religious differences and emphasized that this will be a good lesson for those who attempt to create rifts between religions.
