Buddhist Clergy supports ‘Black Sunday’
By K.L. Suraweera - Kandy
Chief Secretary of the Asgiriya Chapter Most Venerable Dr. Medagama Dhammananda Thera said, the country’s Buddhist clergy will support the decision taken by the Catholics to mark next Sunday (7 March) as ‘Black Sunday,’ as justice has not been meted out to them following the 2019 Easter Sunday terror attacks.
He stated commemorating the coming Sunday as Black Sunday was wholly justified and acceptable considering the long delay in bringing perpetrators behind the carnage to book. Issuing a special statement, Ven. Dhammanandha Thera stated the majority of people would condemn the contents of the report compiled by the Presidential Commission of Inquiry which probed the dastardly blasts, as it had failed to either intentionally or otherwise identify those who had masterminded the carnage.
