People who do not like the peaceful Sri Lanka creating problems. Suddenly their making use of a Buddha stature or a Kovil or a Mosque to create problems. Buddhist, Hindu, Catholic and Muslims religious do not preach any contradictions. It is the trouble makers who bring up these issues and create problems of the country.
Extremists are conspiring to destabilize the peaceful life of the people. In this small country Buddhist, Hindu, Catholic and Muslims faiths must live amicably. Religious leaders should get to gather and work towards this. From the stranded the Eastern Province lagging behind in education though the North &East were affected by conflict North has improved in education.
