Communities where He is least known

Radical Buddhists

Buddhists make up for 70.19% of Sri Lanka's population. While official Buddhism espouses a form of pacifism and tranquillity, there is a minority who are radical, ultra-nationalistic, and violent. As a result, religious disharmony and tension among the ethnic and religious minorities, especially Christians and Muslims, is on the rise in "paradise island." Freedom of religion or belief is a fundamental right guaranteed by the constitution of Sri Lanka. The Church is concerned about protests against minority places of worship that continue to occur. In addition to the attacks, intimidation, and protests, legal restrictions are imposed on Christian places of worship. In an attempt to encourage reconciliation and healing after the thirty-year war, the government has committed itself to guarantee transitional justice. It is vital for the government to arrest the current situation and effectively address attacks on religious minorities, in order to ensure the integrity of its reconciliation efforts.

In the light of statements made by the State, claiming improved human rights standards in the country, the National Christian Evangelical Alliance of Sri Lanka has called on the government to take effective measures to prosecute wrongdoers and defend the freedom of religion or belief in Sri Lanka.
