The Ceylon Chamber of Commerce yesterday condemned religious and ethnic intolerance which has led to the current situation of unrest.

“We call upon those vested with authority to take stringent measures to control all efforts to perpetrate violence. We urge all persons to unite and provide leadership to prevent further violence or the propagation of disharmony,” the Chamber said in a statement.

“Recent history has shown us how seriously our people were affected by a conflict rooted in communal disharmony. A recurrence of such a conflict will impact adversely on the development of this country in many ways i.e. spiritually, socially and economically.” 

The chamber called on Sri Lankans to act in a responsible manner and help the authorities restore normalcy.
