A monk has been staging a protest in front of the Sacred Temple of the Tooth in Kandy.
The protesting monk and incumbent of Panduwasnuwara Sri Sudamma Temple Akarawaththe Sudamma Thera said that the Secretary of the Buddhasasana Ministry has banned him to carry out religious rites and the Sunday school.
Sudamma Thera said that the decision has been taken after another monk of a neighboring temple has claimed the ownership of the Sudamma temple.
When our news team contacted Secretary of the Buddhasasana Ministry Wasantha Ekanayake to comment on the allegation, he said that this situation has erupted due a disputer between two monks.
He also said a case with regard to this matter is heard in the Appeal Court.
