Local Conspiracy behind Easter Sunday attacks – Archbishop

Colombo Archbishop Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith alleges a conspiracy behind the Easter Sunday terror attacks and stresses the subsequent unrest had been planned with the presidential elections later that year in mind.

He made the charge in a sermon during a service at Thewatte Basilica Church today (14) to mark 1,000 days since the series of bomb attacks in 2019.

It is now apparent that some political leaders wanted to use the incident for their own political gains by inciting fear, uncertainty and turmoil, he said.

Certain official had deliberately ignored the intelligence information given by India’s spy agency RAW and those who tried to take preventive action were barred from doing so, the Cardinal alleged further.

He added however that whatever attempts are being made to cover up the truth, no one would be able to prevent God from revealing the truth.
