ACSBM Submits Proposals to President’s Office to Enhance Religious Education and Address Societal Issues

April 12, Colombo (LNW): The All Ceylon Shasanarakshaka Bala Mandalaya (ACSBM) submitted a series of proposals aimed at nurturing a virtuous society to Saman Ekanayake, the Secretary to the President, during a meeting at the Presidential Secretariat on Tuesday (09).

The ACSBM emphasized the link between the decline in religious education and the rise in societal crimes, advocating for President Ranil Wickremesinghe to prioritize their proposals. They lauded the President’s initiatives, including the creation of Piriven and the appointment of teacher assistants who succeeded in the Bauddha Dharmacharya Examination.

The key proposals presented focus on improving Dhamma school education, recruiting qualified teachers, protecting temple lands, and reinforcing the preservation of Theravada Buddhism both nationally and internationally.

The Secretary to the Ministry of Buddha Shasana Religious and Cultural Affairs confirmed that the proposals are in line with current legislation and promised to forward them to President Wickremesinghe. Additionally, Secretary Ekanayake discussed existing national programs such as ‘Urumaya’ for land ownership, as well as initiatives aimed at agricultural modernization and the Kandukara Dashakaya development program.

A specialized committee will be established to further examine these issues, with a detailed report expected to be presented to the President shortly.
