Propaganda Secretary of National Freedom Front (NFF) MP Mohamed Muzammil today requested the IGP to conduct a probe with regard to the comments made by former Governor of Western Province Azath Salley challenging the law of the country.
Addressing a media briefing, Mohamed Muzammil said Azath Salley had publicly pronounced that he does not respect the law of the country but only respect and welcome the Islamic law.
“These comments are very serious and pose a big challenge to the general public and people who express their views against extremist ideologies,” he said.
“There can’t be different laws to people living in one country irrespective of religion, cast and race. The one law in the country is not a barrier to maintain people’s traditions and customs,” Muzammil stressed.
He also said Islamic extremists have come into such position that it publicly challenged the law of the country.
Hence, Muzammil requested the IGP to initiate a probe against Azath Salley. (Sheain Fernandopulle)

if laws are promulgated by convicted criminals in parliament, then why cant a person speak against it?

This man is a disciple of Modawansa and has low IQ. He knows nothing of the rule of law. How can a man be arrest if one says he wants to create one. If so "God" too needs to be prosecuted.

Mr Salley should be reminded that Sri Lanka is not an Islamic state, and if he disrespects our laws, perhaps he should immigrate elsewhere; somewhere Islamic law alone prevails!

Is this why he intervened in the arrest of the men who destroyed our Buddha statues?

Even more reason why provincial councils should be scrapped. Their governors do not have a united approach to govern our country; only a divisive one!

Would Muslims in any western country make such bold statements without criticism?

Its time to sternly remind Azath Salley, SL is not governed by Buddhist, Catholic/Christian/Hindu or Muslim Laws. To fall in line or face consequences.

When extremists know that they cannot be touched due to their connections here and abroad they talk big. If you take action then they can go to Geneva.

Muzzamil is displaying his usual idiotic ignorance. Doesn't he know that SL Laws include Muslim laws as well?

Muzammil should change his name to "Muthu Banda".

Islamic law is practised in Islamic countries only!

It's very unfortunate to have this kind of thugs as leaders of Muslim community, whether he likes it not, what good for the country will implement by the government, once Salley opens his mouth, now already rejected businesses would decline further, it seems MS may be insane to appoint this rascal as a governor at least for few months,
