SRI Lanka has denied entry to a British tourist sporting a Buddha tattoo on his arm because he showed disrespect to Buddhism.

The unnamed Briton was turned back at Bandaranaike Airport, the daily Lankadeepa Sinhalese reported on Saturday.

“When questioned about the tattoo, he spoke very disrespectfully about Buddhism,” an immigration official told the newspaper.

“If he expressed such views after entering the country, it would have been a threat to his own safety.”
