You can delete this thread if you want but, my sri lankan friend is the nephew of kumar dharmasena, and he told me that dilshan was a muslim who converted to buddhism....
IS THIS TRUE OR IS HE CHATTING BULL?

Dilshan's mother was a Buddhist.
He had always belief on Buddhism than Islam. Because that's what he used to practice in home also.
