Unity among communities and religious harmony are vital factors for the development of the country. Divisions among us will strengthen various hostile forces seeking to deny us our freedom. When all communities rise in unity, the forces hostile to the country will be weakened and freedom further strengthened, stated President Mahinda Rajapaksa in his Independence Day message.
We celebrate the 65th anniversary of independence with firm determination and clear commitment to national unity, the President added.
The nation has embarked on a path of development which has made freedom really meaningful. This is a very difficult and challenging task, the fulfillment of which would bring both justice and prosperity to the nation, he continued.
The time has now dawned when you and your children need not to think with fear and suspicion about the future, President Rajapaksa further stated.
