Military intimidation cancels prayers for a second time

Sri Lankan military intimidation has for the second time led to prayers that were going to be held for the displaced people of Valikamam North being cancelled, reports Uthayan.

Military intelligence once again threatened the organisers with “consequences” if the prayers, organised for those displaced in Valikaamam North, went ahead.

Joint prayers were due to be held at the Sabapathipillai Welfare centre today and preparations were already underway, when military intelligence came to the centre and warned the organisers to remove the hut that was being erected for the occasion.
