Born to a Malay family (Islamic leader in mosque), Dilshan converted from Islam to Buddhism at an age of 16 years in 1994

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.

Source: Article by Utpal Shuvro, Prothom Alo, (Bengali news paper).
The article was published couple of years back.
