Athuraliya Thera is trying to bring about a split between the Tamils and Muslims in the North and East, while engaging in the same ploy with the Muslims and Sinhalese in the South, Trincomalee Parliamentarian Abdullah Maharoof said in a media release issued yesterday.
He said that while the regime of good governance brought about happiness and peace of mind in all parts of the country, certain saboteurs as partners of the regime were bent on creating discord in the country and disturbed the freedom so far achieved. Our religion does not accept terrorists and those who engaged in sabotage. "God does not forgive those who commit suicide and our religion does not accept those who commit suicide," he said.
"Further, the security of society should be based on the prevailing conditions in the country. The existence of the Muslims should be guaranteed by the President and the Prime Minister. Innocent Muslims have been arrested under the Prevention of Terrorism Act and this has created economic difficulties for their families as well as psychological stress. These people should be released forthwith," he said in his report.
