Archbishop of Colombo Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith over the weekend stressed that the perpetrators behind the Easter Sunday bomb attacks can be forgiven if they accept responsibility and repent.
“We are ready to forgive the perpetrators of the Easter Sunday attacks if they accept responsibility and repent. Following the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in South Africa, those who were involved in racial riots came and repented their wrong doings. The then President of South Africa Nelson Mandela forgave all wrong doers after they repented. We are also willing to forgive the perpetrators of the Easter Sunday attacks if they repent,” Cardinal Ranjith said during a church service.
“Those who have alledged to have engineered the Easter Sunday bomb attacks should display their honesty by resigning from the post they are holding. Honesty is not hiding behind politicians. One should not be afraid to embrace the truth,” he added.
He said the Church only wants to know the truth.
