Do not forget that there was a dark age in our country when art was banned – Mahinda (VIDEO)

Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa says that it should not be forgotten that there was a dark era in this country where art was banned by restricting the views of artists.

“Artists make great efforts to bring the social reality to the masses creatively. We know that in the past, these people faced many difficulties due to the Covid epidemic. We know that several artists in our country lost their lives due to the Covid. We even lost the opportunity to pay our last respects to certain artists as we had to submit to various restrictions. We should remember them with respect.

Every artist is an asset to the country. Their ideology is seen in the whole society. Therefore, artists should have the right to enjoy democratic freedom in the country. Do not forget that our country had a dark past when this right was taken away from artists. Although such a situation does not exist today, we cannot forget it completely and move on to the future.”

Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa said this addressing a function held at Temple Trees yesterday (21) to present insurance policies to artists.
