Government official unlawfully demands end to Christian worship activities

October 15, 2018 

The pastor and 05 others arrived at the Bulathkohupitiya Police Station at around 09:45 a.m. for a meeting convened by the OIC. 02 Buddhist monks, the Bulathkohupitiya Divisional Secretary (DS) and an individual neighbouring the church premises were also present. The monks levelled several false allegations against the pastor and his activities, and demanded he stop his religious worship activities. The DS too supported this demand. The pastor, however, refused to comply and the OIC said he would convene another meeting on a later date.
