50,000 sex workers in Sri Lanka is a challenge to the Buddhist, Hindu, Christian and Islamic social and cultural value system. The four major religions in this country should rise to the occasion and work in tandem with the state and the society. They should protect the social and cultural values from erosion and help sex workers to transit to dignified life with decent alternative means of earning. A concerted action by the society and sustainable socio-economic planning by the state could auger better life to all citizens to live with dignity and respect. No citizens of mother Lanka need to sell their flesh just because of poverty or any other reason, if the rest of the country, men and women acted with due diligence.
