COLOMBO (News1st): The Maha Sangha launched a Satyagraha campaign in Colombo today citing several demands including the need to punish the perpetrators of the 2019 April 21st attacks.

The Buddhist clergy from all three sects engaged in the Satyagraha campaign that was launched at the Independence Square today.

The demonstration was aimed at demanding punishment for the perpetrators of the April 21st attacks, serving justice for the victim, and condemning attempts to silence Buddhist organizations and leaders named in the report of the presidential commission that probed the bombings.

A resolution dubbed March 11 was revealed during the Satyagraha campaign.

The Satyagraha campaign is due to be held in other districts of the country in the coming days.

Meanwhile, a group carrying the Pakistan Flag, arrived near Independence Square today, where the Satyagraha was being held.

Those present claimed that the group had arrived to attend an event organized by the Pakistan High Commission.

The group carrying the Pakistan Flag dispersed after discussing the matter with an individual, over a police officer’s phone.
