It fails to come to terms with the complex interrelationships between self and society that make the concept of individual choice meaningful.

Inspector General of Police (IGP) Indra De Silva revealed he was in receipt of reliable evidence pointing to the involvement of certain Christian fundamentalist sects in various nefarious activities including child sex .

The IGP said that he had been personally provided with information including video footage of these shady activities that included molesting of underaged children by so called "pastors".

Following this information, I have directed a special Police team to investigate such activities which are said to be taking place" IGP said.

"It is very clear that mainline Christian churches which have been functioning in Sri Lanka for many years are not behind these unlawful acts.

These religious leaders including the Maha Sangha and the Archbishop have pledged to co-operate with the Police in their efforts to combat this menace", the IGP said.

The IGP has requested the public to be vigilant and to verify whether some ordinary homes where these "services" are being conducted in fact has the approval of the local authority to conduct religious services.

The IGP also requested the public to act more responsibly in such situations and to avoid clashes at all costs.
