Report of the Sinhala Commission (Part II)


The Commission (comprising the Hon. S. W. Walpita, Hon. A.D.T.M.P.Tennakoon, Prof P.A. de Silva, Mr P.D.Uduwela and Prof. Lily de Silva) wishes to thank all witnesses who accepted our invitation to give evidence. They came from all over the country and all walks of life. Most gave evidence orally or sent written statements. These witnesses included individuals or were representatives of various organizations. We regret we are not able to give a list of such names to be included in the Report due to the numbers and cost involved.

Special mention must, however be made of the following: the Mahanayake There of the Three Nikayas, the other prominent members of the Maha Sangha, the Diyawadana Nilame, Basnayake Nilames, Catholic and Christian priests, delegates from Christian Organizations, Muslim Leaders and delegates from Muslim Organizations.

Dr. Susantha Goonetillake, Dr.H.N.S.Karunatilleke, Senior Prof. Dr. Silva. We have made several references to a study made by Dr. Sasanka Perera on New Evangelism for RSSCC Institute in this report and wish to record our debt to him. ……
