Politicians who sacrilege religious places are eventual losers - Gayantha

Minister of Mass Media Gayantha Karunathilaka says that individuals who commit sacrilege at religious places of worship for political purposes are the eventual losers and that political and religious extremism is a threat to the peace and harmony in Sri Lanka.

Speaking during a media conference at the Government Information Department today, he urged Sri Lankan politicians who use religious places for their political gains not to take away the culture and religion from the religious institutions.

Karunathilaka said that it was disappointing to note the use of Temples to promote hatred and anger by the opposition including former President Mahinda Rajapaksa.
He urged the Maha Sangha to ensure Temples are not used for politics as they are places of worship and not political stages.
