No confidence motion against Muzammil?

29 May 2012 08:15 am - 7     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The UPFA group of the Colombo Municipal Council (CMC) is to bring in a no- confidence motion against Colombo Mayor A. J. M. Muzammil accusing him of various malpractices.

UPFA Municipal Councillor Mohammed Maharoof charged that the Mayor had taken a group of Muslim MPs to a Hotel in Dambulla and enticed them to do things against the Islamic culture.

Mr. Muzammmil who commented on the matter said the opposition members were trying to create a hoax by brining a no confidence motion against him. He alleged the opposition UPFA members were really bringing the no confidence motion as their group was divided.  “They are blaming me for the division but it is their problem if they cannot stay together,” he said.

    LOL! What is islamic culture? Honor killings, child marriage, beheadings, stonings, amputations, blasphemy law, madrassas, etc. Of course, just mentioning this means I am an islamophobe who just can't understand the wonderful religion of islam.

    Go complain to you papa, RW. He will see no nothing happens to you by contacting his best friend. His friend will have all roads leading the Town Hall closed for repair on the day the motion is to be taken up. So hurry.
