Jan 11, Colombo: The Sri Lankan government has decided to ban building religious places in the country without permission.

Accordingly, the persons who built religious shrines will have to seek permission of the Ministry of Buddhism and Religious Affairs.

A spokesman of the Ministry told media that the government has taken this decision due to the clashes between the religious groups in the country due to establishing religious places without prior permission.

The Ministry has received a large number of complaints against inappropriately established religious places.

The details of the new process can be obtained from the Departments related to various religions and the divisional secretariats island wide, the spokesman said.
