A mosque used by the National Thawheed Jama'at (NTJ) at Madatugama in Kekirawa was yesterday demolished by the area Muslims and devotees of the main mosque.

Trustee of the main mosque M.H.M. Akbar Khan said the mosque used by the NTJ was built with the funds of an organization based in a foreign country.

He said they had decided to demolish the mosque considering the current situation in the country and said there was no need of two mosques. (Kanchana Kumara Ariyadasa)

    As these actions illustrate, the Muslim community has a huge part to play in combating extremism.

    They are doing this for their own protection from the Sinhalese mobs.

    All Ceylon Jammiyathul Ulema's mosques that sow EXTREMISM around Islandwide should be demolished as this way.

    these muslims should not demolish mosque, as divide and conquer seems to be the way muslims will loose. these muslims who a demolishing the mosque should pray that the curse of demolishing a mosque doesnt come to them.

    Don't be a wet blanket Prankster, it has to start somewhere. The way to go our Muslim brothers!

    Prabakaran could do a 30 year war because no Tamil passed any information about them. Muslims helped the government finish off the problem within days. But it is sad to see government is still harassing the Muslims and turning a blind eye towards those who attack Muslims.

    To face the current situation Muslims demolished a trouble-makers mosque. Some asked and got a trouble-maker released from prison!

    Sam K Thursday, 30 May 2019 07:22 AM

    Good initiative... Pretty sure there are a lot more Thawheed Jama'at mosques around the country how were they funded? Who will look into these?

    dulan de silva Thursday, 30 May 2019 07:55 AM

    How come Sinhalese do not stand up to extremists in their presence and instead release all of them from jail

    Man Thursday, 30 May 2019 08:43 AM

    As a Buddhist, demolishing mosques is a crime. Those can be converted into traditional mosques, to avoid extremism.

    Prankster Thursday, 30 May 2019 09:21 AM

    Given their religious teaching this action needed immense courage, believing God will not punish them. It could clever deception too.
