R. Sampanthan, the Leader of the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) and Opposition, released a message for Easter. Easter falls on Sunday, 16th April 2017.
‘Easter marks a celebration of hope for all Christians. It is a time, as such, to look back at the past, evaluate the present, and look forward with hope to the future.’
‘Jesus Christ embodies the need for love, peace, and reconciliation among all people. His life also marked a devotion to justice and a commitment to uplift the marginalized and the downtrodden in society.’
‘It is my hope that as a nation, following the life and example of Jesus, we would strive this Easter to strengthen the bonds of unity among the different communities and break down the barriers of distrust among us.’
