First Sabaragamuwa province banned tuition classes for children between the ages of 5 to 16 years on Full Moon Poya days and on Sundays between 8am to 2pm. A few days Later Matara district followed a similar decision.
Now, the Western Province is also planning to do the same thing. The topic will be discussed at the Western Provincial Council on Tuesday, 8th June 2010.
The politicians are enforcing children to take part in religion; especially on Buddhism. A couple of years back the Government came up with a law to ban tuition classes on Sundays but that didn’t last long. Wonder why the provincial councils are trying to do this again? And wonder who is behind these moves?
