Sandya Ekneligoda, wife of Journalist Prageeth Ekneligoda, who was abducted and disappeared twelve years ago, vowed that she will continue to fight till justice is served.
Mrs. Ekneligoda made this observation with media following her special religious devotion ‘Viradam Pooja’ to Hindu Goddess Kali in Modara Kali Fane in memory of Mr. Ekneligoda yesterday (25).
“It has been twelve years since my husband was abducted and disappeared by force. Today, when this country is in a state of panic, fear of diseases, and people are starving, I came to Mother Kali to shave my head for my husband,” Mrs. Ekneligoda said.
She added: “There is a rule of nature in this country. All citizens of this country subject to that rule, that nature. All animals in the universe are subject to that nature. So I think Kali is the universal woman in that nature. Because Kali will be able to punish the criminals in this country. The noble and universal woman who fought for her husband was Mother Pattini. So, I decided to take my fight in the footsteps of that universal mother. From today, I will be shaving my head for my husband, in the name of Mother Kali. I will continue this fight on this earth till I get justice.”
