At Present there is a Big Conversation in Sri Lanka Community about Ban Burqa in Sri Lanka.This Conversation is Started because of Some Speech of a SriLanka Minister.The Foundation for this Conversation is Easter Sunday Attack which was happened in April of 2019.The Terrorists who did that Attack used Burqa to travel hidden from Security Services of SriLanka.
So After Lot of Inspections of this Attack Started a Conversation among People to Ban Burqa in SriLanka.In Past We didn’t See Problems like this.But Now Our Traditions are Changing & People’s thinking is being dangerous.In this Situation People(Terrorists) don’t think about Our Traditions.
However according to my thinking most of Srilanka People think that Burqa must be Ban.Following this Past Days a Minister Said that He was signed to Cabinet Paper which was according to Ban Burqa in Sri Lanka.
But that Cabinet Paper not submitted in Last (15) Cabinet Meeting.Government Sources says that Cabinet Paper will submit in Next Cabinet Meeting.
After Last Cabinet Meeting (15),
“No cabinet paper was brought regarding the burqa. It was not even discussed”Minister SM Chandrasena
Government saying that they’re still discussing about the decision.Today (16) at the Press Conference Minister Keheliya Rambukwalla Commented about this.
“The issue of the burqa was discussed at length. We especially discussed the events that took place on Easter Sunday and the cultural changes that have taken place in the last 10 or 15 years. Recognition as Sri Lankans for many years, there was no problem with that coexistence. In recent times, cultural elements have begun to change. We have come to the conclusion that it should be done in a hurry and not in a hurry”Minister Keheliya Rambukwalla
