Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith, the Archbishop of Colombo, in a press release on recent clashes and riots at Aluthgama, says all those who foster divisive thinking should be punished and all such thoughts of hegemony or separatism should not be encouraged anywhere in their country, a photo story posted on the official website of the Archdiocese of Colombo reported.

The report quotes Cardinal Ranjith’s appeal for protection and preservation of the diversity of the various ethnic and religious groups and for fostering unity.

The cardinal also reportedly called upon government officials to “do their utmost to ensure that discipline, rule of law and harmony exists among all groups. “
