SRI LANKA | MAY. 17, 2023 — Family Land Confiscated for Buddhist Temple
A Buddhist temple in Sri Lanka
Pastor Priyantha and his wife, Dinesha, planted a church in Sri Lanka in 2016.
They faced severe opposition from Buddhist monks, villagers, government officers and the police. In 2021, local government authorities confiscated their property, including a coconut plantation which they had cultivated as a source of income to support their church ministry. The confiscated land was then given to the Buddhist leaders to build a temple.
