Services have been organized in many churches across the country today (21) in memoriam of the victims of the Easter Sunday attack of 2019.
A total of 269 people lost their lives in suicide attacks at seven venues including hotels, restaurants and three churches, while Catholics were celebrating Easter Sunday in 2019. Several others became disabled.
It is heartbreaking that even though it has been four years since the Easter attacks, the law has not yet been properly implemented against those responsible.
Father Jude Krishantha Fernando, the National Director of Public Communication of the Colombo Archdiocese, said that a human chain protest (Jana Paura) will be created on both sides of the Negombo-Colombo Road this morning supporting the Church’s quest for truth and justice over the attacks.
Meanwhile, it was reported that the march which commenced from St. Sebastian’s Church in Katuwapitiya is now reaching St. Anthony’s Church in Kochchikade to mark the 4th anniversary of the Easter Sunday attack.
