The All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama (ACJU) yesterday vehemently condemned the terrorist attack on churches and other places while Christian brothers and sisters were celebrating Easter.

Issuing a statement, the President of the ACJU Mufti M.I.M Rizwe said, “this is a shameful and heinous act which no human being can tolerate for any reason. Though the attacks were carried out on a day holy to a particular religious community, it is a very sad day for all Sri Lankans.”

On behalf of all Sri Lankan Muslims, we the All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama, extend our arms of solidarity, love and affection towards our Christian brothers and sisters at this moment of grief.

We urge the authorities to assure that all places of worship are adequately protected immediately, and to ensure that the perpetrators of these crimes are brought to justice without delay.

We urge all Sri Lankans, especially the Muslim community including trustees of mosques, to do all that is necessary to support the affected communities by facilitating donation of blood, helping the injured, providing psychological support and making them feel safe and secure.

We appeal to all religious and civil leaders to join hands in rightly guiding the people of their respective areas to prevent communal conflicts, and also to the public to refrain from spreading rumours through different forms of media.

At this moment of great tragedy, let us all join together in solidarity and face the challenges with mutual love and respect to move forward as Sri Lankans. We pray to Almighty Allah that He eases the pain of all who were affected and grant His mercy to them.

Let us all be together in this, and help and support each other in this time of grief and pray that we overcome this tragedy as Sri Lankans, ”it added.

    It’s not about condemning it’s about educating your community.

    The authorities should investigate organisations like this - they are the ones that promote such deviant thoughts to the young generation.
