The National Sangha Council says that the United Nations does not have the right to level allegations of human rights violations at a legitimate government that defeated terrorism.

At a media briefing convened in Colombo on Friday, the National Sangha Council clarified their stance.

Secretary of International Affairs of National Sangha Council, Ven. Midelpitiye Wimalarathana Thera expressed these views:

“The United Nations does not have the ability to bring allegations of human rights violations against a government that came into power legitimately and defeated the most dangerous terrorism in the world. We must fearlessly state today that even the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights is also acting in a communalist fashion.

They are thinking from a Tamil mentality. We are truly saddened by the allegations that have been levelled by persons including the Bishop of Mannar. Most of the signatories are persons who used to depend on the terrorists. Even today they are standing for terrorism. We do not have a strong opposition to take our woes too. If there was a strong opposition they could have spoke on the good or the ill of this.”
