Don’t marginalize entire community for acts of handful of extremists: Ferial Ashroff

Ferial Ashroff 700 01

Former Minister Ferial Ashroff has appealed to the nation not to marginalize the entire community of Muslims for the actions of a handful of terrorists.

She was speaking to the media. She said:

“We are still in shock as to what happened on Easter Sunday. We are still grieving.

We couldn't imagine that these terrorists could come from our community. I have spoken to many in Kalmunai which was my electorate and they are still in shock and are helping the law enforcement authorities.

We concede that we could have done more to quell the extremism. This was a shock and an eye opener to all of us. But I plead of you to not look at an entire community with hate and suspicion. However, unfortunately and unexpectedly there was violence against the Muslim community.”
