All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama (ACJU) said today some elements were actively engaged in continuous anti-Muslim campaigns which would induce racism and disrupt the prevailing peace and coexistence.

“Such activities targeted towards a community, would disrupt the prevailing peace and coexistence and affect the development process of the country and also would violate the Rights assured by the Constitution to every citizen of this Country,” ACJU said in a statement.

ACJU Propaganda Committee Secretary Ash-Sheikh H. Omardeen said that the Muslims living in this country had been continuously facing a number of challenges throughout history.

“We have overcome such periods successfully by being calm and patient as per the teachings of Islam. We Muslims should refrain and protect ourselves from major Sins and make sincere efforts towards strengthening the bond with Allah. Certainly, our good deeds would result in peace and prosperity to the Muslims and all others,” he said.

He also said the current situation prevailing in the country had resulted in restlessness among the Muslim Community.

Mr. Omardeen said Muslim organizations decided to meet the President, Prime Minister, Muslim Parliamentarians and the concerned Officers to discuss on the appropriate actions to smoothen the situation.

He said a committee was appointed to continue the efforts in building better relations and coexistence with other communities.

    It is a behavioral problem all need to address. Religious leaders must address it ASAP. All communities were co-existing in this country for many years. Sri Lanka had a excellent and unique culture and all communities were peaceful in the past. When people try to adopt other countries culture here, results, what we talk today

    It was the ACJU who proposed to abandon the marriage act and increase the marriage age. Thowheed Jamath is only against it.

    This anger and hate towards Muslims comes from jealousy towards their business success. They want to economically cripple them and stall their success. The names of the business and communication establishments they are targeting says it all. Born losers.
