Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe has condemned the remarks made by former Eastern Province governor M.L.M. Hisbullah.

The Prime Minister had done so when he met representatives of civil society organizations at Temple Trees.

Mr. Hisbullah was reported to have said at a function that the Muslims were a world majority and therefore they should not live in country in fear and had also marked his speech with inflammatory language.

The Prime Minister said everybody should identify themselves as Sri Lankans.

    Really? MR created racism and you and my3 flailed to flame out and enjoyed the public attention going out from your government failures. Some extremist looked for support from outside the country and became terrorists with some political aids. Now you remember that muslims also sri lankan? What government did when aluthgama to Negambo riots? If you want to defeat terrorism impliment law and order impartially, protect all sri lankan despite of religion and race. Then talk

    Hisbullah do not know the basics. For his information Christianity is the largest religion in the world and Islam comes a second. A ex Governor without basic knowledge.

    Don't you have the power to arrest this bastard for uttering statements of treason. If you have the balls, just do it.

    Why not condemn also the racist hate speech made by Champika?

    The majority in the world should not reflect activities in the country one live. Society can function effectively with peace harmony not greed power violence and hate

    Why worry? Mr. Hisbullah has the freedom to go to his choice of Arabic country and make his own comments and live happily there.

    PM why dont you utter a single word when Ghanasara, Champika and Ampitiya Rathne talk against minority.

    Adwani Wednesday, 12 June 2019 11:16 AM

    The Muslims refused to support LTTE due to its violent goal and were subject to expulsion by the armed LTTE fighters, Ranil and the rest of the wild sinhala politicians must remember loyalty undertook by Muslims.

    So what he is actually saying, the day when muslims and islam is majority in Sri Lanka, we are doomed to convert or get killed.
