Virtuous society can be built through understanding – PM

Aug 17, 2010 6:00:01 AM - itnnews.lk

Prime Minister D.M. Jayaratne has said that a virtuous society can be created through better understanding of one’s religion.

The Prime Minister said the people seem to have made religion, a superficial feature which is confined to the birth certificate. Adults should guide the children on the religious path according to the religion followed by them. He noted that the children should be spiritually developed to build a virtuous society.

The Prime Minister expressed these views while participating in the awards presentation of the “Mithuru Mithuru” Temperance Movement.  Sarvodaya Movement pioneer Dr. A.T. Ariyaratne was present. Awards were presented to rehabilitated youths.
