Dignities of communities must be respected - Teplitz

The US Ambassador to Sri Lanka Alaina B. Teplitz says the right and dignity of all communities should be respected by permitting the observance of faith in accordance with international public health guidelines.

The Ambassador took to twitter to quote Universal Declaration of Human Rights to which Sri Lanka is a signatory to.

“Article 18 states that everyone has the right to manifest their religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance. COVID created global challenges but it should not cost us our compassion and respect for one another’s belief.” she said. “We stand with all families who’ve lost loved ones to this pandemic.”
