Colombo Municipal Council today (12) started the removal of the massive Bo tree situated in the Swarna Chaithya road, Grandpass.

CMC workers started the work around 10.00am as the expansion of the nearby Islamic mosque could not have been done due to the tree.

The decision was taken to remove the Bo tree as the Muslim community said that if it is removed then the expansion of the mosque can be started again.

The work was conducted under heavy STF guard and a few Buddhist monks from a nearby temple assisted in doing the relevant religious proceedings.

Decisions have been made to remove the mosque which is being constructed to the previous location and to remove the Bo tree, at the discussion held with the participation of multi religious leaders.
