A stock of 797 CDs and stickers suspected to have been used to propagate the ideology of the Muslim fundamentalists were seized during a raid on a Mosque at Moragoda, Dangedara in Galle and the president and the treasurer of the mosque were arrested.   


Police and the security forces had carried out the raid on information received from the public during a search operation in the area. 


They had searched the office of the treasurer and the house of the president to find the stock of CDs and the stickers.   


A senior police official said the mosque affiliated to the National Thawheed Jamaat had been propagating the Muslim fundamentalist ideology and severely criticized the traditional Islamic faiths, Buddhism and Christianity and that the contents in the CDs would affect the religious and communal harmony in the country.   


Meanwhile 19 suspected Thawheed Jamaat activists had been arrested from Ahangama, Habaraduwa, Poddala, Galle and Hikkaduwa Police areas.   


A Police team under HQI Galle Arunalal is conducting further investigations and raids on the instructions of SSP Sathis Gamage and SP Anuruddha Bandara.
