March 23, 2018 

At approximately 04 p.m., a mob of around 100 villagers led by 10 Buddhist monks stood outside the place of worship and threatened a Christian couple residing there. They further demanded that the Christians stop engaging in religious activities with others in the village. Around 11 police officers from the Kuda Oya Police Station were but did not intervene. The Christian couple is attached to the Assemblies of God church in Ethiliwewa.
