Prominent trade unionist and social activistRev  Murutheuwea  Ananda  said it is not proper to harass followers  of  other religions merely because Buddhist are in the majority.

The venerable monk pointed out the hate campaign directed towards the religious minorities in the country is sad.

Rally for Unity – Hate Has No Place in Sri Lanka, will be held today (28) in Colombo, in a show of protest against the recent spate of hate speech and the marginalization of minority communities. The rally is part of a series of non-partisan, non-violent awareness campaigns, organized by a voluntary movement of concerned Sri Lankans from various institutions, professions and industries.

The participants would converge at the Nelum Pokuna, Green Path from 10:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. today. The organizers believe the rally would be a catalyst for similar events and initiatives, and empower the silent majority of moderate Sri Lankans to stand up for an inclusive Sri Lanka.

Those who are abroad can follow the campaign on https://www.facebook.com/RallyForUnity and on twitter #RallyForUnity
