Minister Wimal Weerawansa speaking in Parliament today (24 Nov) said that Buddhist, Christian or Hindu schools do not teach beheadings and to kill non-believers and that such things are only taught in Madrasa schools.
The Minister said that ” Arabic Madrasa is the womb that influenced the birth of terrorists like Saharan”, and that the arrested Hisbullah also carried on a similar school where the children have testified that they were given weapons training and that the Saharan had given lectures.
“In Pakistan, madrassa schools are banned because all those who carry out suicide attacks in Pakistan are educated in madrassa schools. ” He emphasized.
“The people of this country brought Gotabhaya Rajapaksa to power not only to capture and imprison the extremist gangs behind Saharan but also to take necessary steps regarding the womb created by Saharan,” the Minister further added.
