If Muslims lose patience country will face dire consequences: EPC member

24 May 2017 07:46 am - 30     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


If the Muslims of this country are to lose their patience the country will face dire consequences, Eastern Provincial Council member, Shibly Farooq said.

He said so at the monthly sitting of the of the Eastern Provincial Council.

"The racial activities taking place in the country will pave the way for another blood bath. The majority of the Sinhala community do not approve racism. The proof of this mind set could be seen in the defeat of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa.The Tamils and Muslims in the country are once again facing a series of problems.The reasons for this development are the politics and International pressure," the EPC member said.

"Racism is once again unleashed in spite of the fact that the scars of the 1983 blood bath and the war that followed have not healed yet," he said

"Therefore, while great trust has been placed on this government of Good Governance, it must flex its muscles and restrain the racist forces from rearing their ugly heads," Mr.Farook said.

He called on the Government to maintain law and order. (M.S.M.Noordeen)

    DM will not always publish everyone's comments. One has to live as a minority in a country to experience all these sorts of harassment from the majority. This is what Muslims have been experiencing since last government and now in this government. Why no one is bothered about when a monk behave like a crazy. Is this monk not misleading the young Buddhists in the country and overseas??

    Mr. pappu. FYI muslims in SL don't want ISIS on our ground. that's why ISIS still could not enter here.

    Take swift and stern action against hate speech and people and organisations that stir up communal unrest. Without any bias or partiality.

    Unwinable? Then why don't they make problems in countries like China and russia(when they do they get swift justice).They only thrive due to the 'political correctness'that prevailed in western countries.Hopefully they would wake up from that slumber before it's too late.

    dinesh Wednesday, 24 May 2017 09:33 AM

    very true, but fundamentalist/racial attitudes of all religions and races need to be checked not just one.

    yahiya Wednesday, 24 May 2017 09:24 AM

    Only less than 1% activity do not blame the entire majority. Entire majority love the peace

    This is a serious threat to SL and sinhala people. They want ISIS action on our ground too. Stupid politicians keep tha country at ransom for the sake of power via DM Android App

    Chris Wednesday, 24 May 2017 09:07 AM

    Arrest him, this looks like a veiled threat to the country. Did I hear a government Minister talk only yesterday that they will arrest any one who talks racism?

    padmapriya Wednesday, 24 May 2017 08:56 AM

    This guy sounds like a ISIS member. Talk about blood baths.
