Pope Francis, after his Urbi et Orbi appearance, breaks the news about the deadly atacks on Christian churches in Sri Lanka.
Pope Francis, after his Urbi et Orbi appearance, breaks the news about the deadly atacks on Christian churches in Sri Lanka.

Some world leaders, and even the mainstream media, didn’t get it.

But at least, Pope Francis on Easter Sunday speaking after the special Easter ‘Urbi et Orbi’ message and blessing, expressed his  “heartfelt closeness to the Christian community [of Sri Lanka] wounded as it was gathered in prayer, and to all the victims of such cruel violence.”

As usual the mainstream media can not be relied upon to share the true narrative of the event. Majority will not want to speak of truth.

State minister of defence Ruwan Wijewardene told the parliament “the preliminary investigations have revealed that what happened in Sri Lanka was in retaliation for the attack against Muslims in Christchurch.”

Already, ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack via its Amaq news agency.

Sri Lanka has a population of over 20 million, 70% are Buddhists, with Hindus and Muslims forming the largest minority groups with 12.6% and 9.7% respectively.

Christians which number about 1.5 million, are largely Catholic, just about 6% of the population.
