Curb violence against innocent Muslims: Rauff Hakeem to PM, security forces

Rauff Hakeem 700 001
Sri Lanka Muslim Congress Leader Minister Rauff Hakeem has requested the Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe and the armed forces to curb continued violence against the innocent Muslims in the country, with the danger of the terrible experience snowballing in to a more complex conundrum.

He has made the appeal in a statement issued. It said:

“It is dreadful and frightening to witness the unfolding events of innocent men, women and children of the Muslim community are targeted in reprisal for the horrendous and beastly attacks by some extremists on three holy shrines and three hotels on 21April.

Those who suffered in that horrible crime were worshippers then attending one of the holiest events in the Christian calendar in houses dedicated to God and harmless human beings seeking simple pleasures of life with their kith and kin in the secure confines of hotels.

The State has assured that justice will be meted out to the despicable scoundrels who while claiming to profess Islam committed this indescribable atrocity. Those directly involved are already killed, yet, the country is in the grip of a terrible panic.

Attacks on innocent Muslim communities continue to take place while security forces are striving hard to restore normalcy. Mobs attacked Muslims’ businesses, mosques and homes overnight on 12 and 13May, killing one. A country wide curfew has been enforced.

In the absence of the President in the country, we look forward to the Prime Minister and the tri-forces Commanders to take control of the violence and save the Muslims who are suffering for a dastardly crime committed by a few with whom the larger Muslim community has nothing to do whatsoever.

With the danger of the terrible experience snowballing in to a more complex conundrum, we urge the Government and the armed forces to curb continued violence against the innocent Muslims in the country.”
