We express our sadness at the acts of barbarity in Sri Lanka during the holy Easter Sunday.
We would like to extend our deepest sympathies and condolences to all those affected; worshippers of Christian faith during the holy Easter weekend, and individuals and families – both local and from overseas, who lost their lives. Our thoughts are also with the unfortunate members of all communities who were injured and who experienced this terrible scene.
We would like to thank the work of the emergency services and those who voluntarily donated blood during this tragic period.
These shameful and despicable attacks transcend politics and policies; belief and non-belief.
It is now more important than ever to highlight the objectives that BRISLA promotes; unity with diversity.
Moving forward, it is imperative that all of us from diverse origins join together in a spirit of peace and seek harmony.
We, as members of humanity, of all faiths and no faith, must stand together against these atrocities.
