Do not demonise all Muslims – Anglican Bishop

The Anglican Bishop of Colombo today appealed to Sri Lankans not to demonise all Muslims for the sins of a few warped minds.

He said the Muslim community must be treated with respect and understanding.

Speaking at a media briefing, Rt Revd Dhiloraj Ranjit Canagasabey also raised concerns over the threats faced by refugees and asylum seekers in Negombo following the Easter Sunday attacks.

He appealed to the authorities to consider alternative shelter options for the refugees after attempts by the church to provide refuge had to be aborted following protests.
