The cleric like scores of others recognizes it and preaches it.

The jihad attack on the churches that killed almost 300 people and injured hundreds of others “is said to have close ties to National Tawheed Jamaat, the Islamic terror organisation suspected to be behind the Easter Sunday bombings.”

Sri Lanka was warned in advance about the church bombings by intelligence officials from India and failed to act on those warnings to protect the churches.
