Freedom of religion ensured in Sri Lanka says president

Sri Lanka's president said freedom of religion was ensured whilst speaking at a church service on Sunday. 
"Sri Lanka had been able to ensure the right that supports the freedom of individuals to follow any religion as spiritual concept was what assisted people to become disciplined and well-behaved," the president was quoted by the Daily Mirror as saying. 
His remarks came despite increasing incidents of Sinhala Buddhist monks targetting Tamils and Muslims with racist abuse.
