At the request of the Chif incumbent of the Padeniya Purana Rajamaha Viharaya, Ven. Katumuluwe Sumarathna Nayaka Thero, Iran has offered to build a fully equipped school for Muslim students in Kurunegala.

This undertaking has been given by the Iranian Ambassador to Sri Lanka Mr. Mahmoud Rahimi Gorgi at an inter-religious conference held at the auditorium of the North-Western Provincial Council during the weekend. Ayatolla Mohamed Naqi Shahrukhi, the advisor and the South Asian representative of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatullah Ali Khameni participated at this religious forum as the Chief Guest

Ven.Sumarathna Nayaka Thero has pointed out that lack of a well equipped school for the Muslim students in Kurunegala despite the fact that there were such schools for the Buddhist and Christian students in the area was a hindrance to the education development of Muslim students in the area.

The Chief Adhikarana Sanga Nayaka of the North Western Province Ven. Thumbulle Sri Seelakkandha Thera, Executive Secretary of the Inter-Religious Peace Foundation Ven. Madampagama Assaji Thera and joint Secretary of the Foundation Rev. Fr. Anura Perera also participated at this conference.(niz)-
