The Presidential candidate of Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) Gotabaya Rajapaksa requested the Muslims minority to be party to his victory which, he said, is certain according to every survey done in the country.

Addressing a group of Muslims at a mosque in Chilaw, he said the government had failed in ensuring security for people in the country. He said security is a pre-requisite for all communities.

He said, “My fervent hope is to build a safe country for all communities to live in. Everybody should be able to live without fear. There has to be one common law for all the people. Then only, people can carry out their daily businesses and follow their respective religions,”

He requested the Muslims not to get carried away by false propaganda. He said there was a misconception about him among the Muslims, and it would have been the reason for Muslims voting against Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa at the last elections.

    It is too late now MR GR... you supported violent and racist groups which caused riot and mayhem around the country at many points in the last 10 years. No one wants a white van culture and a repressive media culture and no one want one family royal rule.

    Not only the Muslims but all the minorities are feeling anxious and worried about you becoming the next President.

    Oh really, what about BBS and Panadura burning

    dulan de Silva Monday, 23 September 2019 09:53 AM

    Even now BBS monks are walking the road canvassing for Gota. He has talked of Muslim extremism since 2013 but never once against Sinhala extremism

    sanath Monday, 23 September 2019 10:06 AM
