Megapolis and Western Development Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka yesterday called for the deportation of 800 foreign Islamic clerics who were engaged in religious teaching at various Madrasas. 

 He told Daily Mirror that these clerics had arrived on tourist visas, but were engaged in Islamic religious teaching.  

 “I urge the government to deport them immediately,” the minister said.  Earlier, Education Minister Akila Viraj Kariyawasam said his Ministry would take steps to regulate the Madrasas in the country.
