Ministry Of Home Affairs Marks "Funeral Of Maduluwawe Sobitha Thera" Again (See Letter)

A letter signed by the Secretary to the Ministry of Home Affairs informing state institutions of the National Day of Mourning on Sunday to mark the funeral of the Asgiriya Mahanayake has apparently made a glaring mistake.

Although the title of the letter mentions the funeral of the Asgiriya Mahanayake Thera, its body mentions that the funeral of late Maduluwawe Sobitha Thera will be held on March 13.

Maduluwawe Sobitha Thera passed away on November 8, 2015.

Vajira Abeywardena is the Minister of Home Affairs and J. J. Rathnasiri is the Secretary.
