“This situation cannot be taken lightly as it is a theft within a philosophy. This should be defeated internationally. Those fluent with Mohommed’s teachings have a big role to play.”

Wickramabahu expressed suspicion that this is a planned operation with the involvement of President Maithripala Sirisena, former President Mahinda Rajapaksa, Gotabhaya Rajapaksa.
“There is a question on whether having such a religious threat, the political conspiracy was launched with some sinister motive. There is evidence pointing to such a doubt.”
