Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe has stated that a Bill to regulate Islamic religious institutions including Mathrasas is to be formulated by the government shortly after consultations with the Attorney General.

He made this observation to the media after holding a special discussion at Temple Trees on Friday, May 17 with the representatives of the Ministry of Postal Services and Muslim Religious Affairs and the representatives of the Attorney General's Department.

Speaking further on the occasion, Wickremesinghe said:

“After further discussions with the Attorney General's Department and the Muslim Religious Affairs Ministry the bill will be presented to the Cabinet.

I also emphasized that Sri Lanka does not need Sharia universities. Therefore, according to the Universities Act, institutions that award degrees should be open to all. Steps will be taken to include other conditions required to create an environment for everybody to receive education. Accordingly, a situation will be created to maintain these institutions open for all religions and races with proper control."
