Page "Anagarika Dharmapala" Paragraph 43
::" This bright, beautiful island was made into a Paradise by the Aryan Sinhalese before its destruction was brought about by the barbaric vandals.
Its people did not know irreligion ... Christianity and polytheism Hinduism are responsible for the vulgar practices of killing animals, stealing, prostitution, licentiousness, lying and drunkenness ...
The ancient, historic, refined people, under the diabolism of vicious paganism, introduced by the British administrators, are now declining slowly away.
" ( Anagarike Dharmapala, quoted in A. Guruge, Return to Righteousness: A Collection of Speeches, Essays and Letters of the Anagarike Dharmapala.
