DPJC Position Statement

Condemning the Attacks on Churches & Hotels in Sri Lanka

Dallas Peace & Justice Center joins political and religious leaders from around the world in our condemnation of the heinous attacks on Churches and Hotels on the eve of Easter in Sri Lanka. No words are strong enough to condemn such horrendous inhumanity. We join with our brothers and sisters worldwide in expressing our grief and sadness for the suffering of the people of Sri Lanka.

These attacks are an assault not only aimed at the Sri Lankan people or their Christian Community, but also on all of humanity. Extremism in all its forms has been fueling these violent attacks and should be condemned in strongest terms. We call for an end to the cycle of violence among different religious and political groups worldwide.

The world is on the side of peaceful coexistence among all groups.
