In two separate raids conducted yesterday at Kalpitiya, three individuals including the manager of a state bank and trustee of a mosque allegedly used by the Tawheed Jamaat, were taken into custody with 12-bore ammunition and posters on Buddha statues written in Arabic language.

Police said the 55-year-old bank manager was arrested with 61 rounds of 12-bore ammunition. He was to be produced in the Puttalam Magistrate's Court.

Meanwhile, the trustee and a teacher of the Tawheed Jamaat mosque in Pallivasalthurai were arrested by the police and the Army with several documents and posters on Buddha statues written in Arabic language. The suspects aged 40 and 45 were handed over to the Kalpitiya Police. (Padma Kumari Kankanamage)

    One of the solutions is to close all the small Mosques and allow only well recognised big mosques even if this brings difficulties for village Muslims.

    Can we do the same with other religious shrines too?

    Very severe punishments should be meted out to these scum. The President has not banned the All-Ceylon Thowheed Jamaat - he has left one, we do not know whether it is for his personal use or not. Even this should be banned immediately without any delay.
