Colombo, 05 July, (Asiantribune.com):

Renovation and rededication of the church is a fulfillment of a national duty, President Mahinda Rajapaksa said.

This is a good opportunity to showcase the religious harmony that prevails in Sri Lanka, he added.

President made these observations yesterday while attending the rededication ceremony of the Galle Fort Methodist Church.

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.

He further said hat 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.
