( Dan Brown’s best selling novel “The Da Vinci Code”published in 2003 created much controversy. Ron Howard’s block buster film based on the novel with the same name was also equally controversial. “The Da Vinci Code” starring Tom Hanks and Audrey Tautou was banned in Sri Lanka in May 2006 by then President Mahinda Rajapaksa after the Catholic Bishops Conference appealed to him. I was then critical of the action and stated so in an article written for “The Sunday Leader” under the heading “A Christian perspective on the da Vinci Code movie ban” in which I also questioned the conduct of the Catholic church leaders on the question. I am now re-producing the article written 10 years ago without any changes to denote the tenth anniversary of the ban on “The Da Vinci Code”film – DBSJ)
