leave a comment »

The UNP member of the Sabragamuwa  provincial council Yahiya M. Iflar said that though the government was saying that it was doing services without looking at race, religion and ethnicity, no such service was provided to Muslim areas in the Ratnapura district.

“These areas are being neglected by the present government” he said at a meeting held at his office with regard to equipments provided to masjids in the Ratnapura district recently. He said various developments were taking place in areas of the majority community and the government showing much interest in providing basic facilities and opportunities to those areas of the majority community neglected the necessities in Muslim areas and treated them as second class citizens.
