Impending Terror Attacks On Churches In Sri Lanka?: Defence Ministry Secretary Rubbishes News Circulating On Social Media

September 29, 2021

The Ministry of Defense has issued a statement rubbishing the news circulating on social media and electronic media that churches in the country could be attacked by terrorists.

Defence Ministry Secretary Kamal Gunaratne said the "news" disseminated on many platforms was not verified and had no basis.

The Defence Ministry Secretary further stated that there was no reason to be alarmed by this news. The story, however, sent shock waves among the Catholic community in Sri Lanka, who was victimised by the Easter Sunday attacks in April, 2019.

However, this came in the wake of some revelations made by Bodu Bala Sena General Secretary Galagodaaththe Gnanasara Thera about an impending terror attack in the country.
