Muslim returnees affected by flood in Musali

leave a comment »

Muslims resettled at Musali areas in Mannar recently are very badly affected by the downpour experienced there at present.

The LTTE evicted Muslims resettled after 19 years and undergoing difficulties and hardships without electricity, lack of toilets and transport facilities are burdened with more difficulties due to the rain presently experienced in those areas.

Around 4,200 families were expelled from Musali in the year 1990 and that number has now been increased to more than 10,000 families. Out of the 1,526 families resettled so far, the government has resettled only 53 families and others went back to their places on their own and resettled there.

Political moves alleged to divide Islamic scholars

leave a comment »

ACJU.gif

Reports that individuals aligned to the Government have taken steps to intimidate and divide the All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama (ACJU) for political purposes have appalled Sri Lankan Muslims, former minister Imtiaz Bakeer Markar said.

In a special statement Mr. Markar said that the role of the ACJU is of significant importance to the Muslim community especially as a minority within a multi-religious Sri Lanka, therefore attempts to weaken the organization would only be detrimental to efforts to create a peaceful and harmonious Sri Lanka.

“Attempts made by any individuals or group to threaten or to force division among the Islamic scholars of this country will be seen by the ordinary Muslims as nothing short of extremely irresponsible and repugnant behaviour,” he said.

The statement said that ACJU – the unifying body of Islamic theologians representing all the main schools of thought existent in Sri Lanka – in addition to providing leadership on theological matters has and continues to play a vital and fundamental role in sustaining unity and harmony within the country’s Muslim community.

“Any citizen, including Presidential candidates has the right to seek a meeting with any of the religious leaders of Sri Lanka’s religious communities. Similarly, the ACJU has the right to agree to a meeting with any citizen of the country, be it a Presidential candidate or not,” the statement said.

He said that Muslims of the country demand these unscrupulous elements to cease their shameful efforts to create division and discord aimed at gaining narrow political benefits.

‘PLA’ a creation of govt. to rig Presidential Election – Hakeem

leave a comment »

by Zacki Jabbar

The so-called Peoples Liberation Army does not exist and was a creation of the government aimed at rigging the forthcoming Presidential Election, SLMC leader Rauff Hakeem alleged yesterday.

He said that the Rajapaksa regime was allegedly planning to use armed Tamil groups under the guise of them being the ‘PLA’ to prevent Tamils and Muslims from voting for General (Retd) Sarath Fonseka, the Oppositions Common Presidential Candidate.

“The PLA does not exist nor is the report that it has 300 members and was planning to recruit another 5,000 cadres correct”, he said. “Being a non existent group, it obviously cannot be linked to the Palestinian Liberation Organization as claimed by the government.”

The East was being terrorized by armed Tamil groups supportive of the Rajapaksa administration. It is their members, who would be used to create a fear psychosis and also rig the Presidential Poll Hakeem alleged.

“At the last Eastern Provincial Council Election, pro government armed Tamil groups stuffed the ballot boxes in the Ampara District”, he alleged. “In certain voting centers a turnout of between 95 to 98 per cent had been recorded. Such  high percentages are simply not possible.”

Hakeem said that the UNF has requested the Elections Commissioner to ensure the conduct of a free and fair Presidential poll.

Revival of Eastern LTTE wing, a govt. canard – Hakeem

leave a comment »

The “revival” of the LTTE in the East, was a government canard to create a fear psychosis among the people during the Presidential Election campaign, SLMC leader Rauff Hakeem said.

Addressing a public meeting in Thoppur, Trincomalee last week, he said that the so called “LTTE Group headed by Kones”, was none other than a combination of pro-government Tamil armed groups, that continued to terrorise the Eastern Province population.

“The re-grouping of the LTTE in such a short time, after its entire leadership had been wiped out is impossible,” Hakeem said. “The Rajapaksa regime claimed to have decimated the LTTE. It is now spreading a canard about the revival of the organisation in the East, to create a fear psychosis among the people during the Presidential Election campaign.”

The 5,000 eastern LTTE cadres referred to by the Rajapaksa administration, he said actually belonged to armed Tamil groups supportive of the government and were in no way part of the “imaginary LTTE Eastern wing.”

Hakeem said that the Muslims and Tamils would vote for General Sarath Fonseka at the forthcoming Presidential polls, since they have been given a raw deal by the Rajapaksa administration.

“The problems faced by the Tamils and Muslims, have not been addressed, even seven months after the war had ended. Instead, the government is trying to sell the war to win the Presidential Election,”he said. “But the masses have had enough of broken promises. They will ensure General Fonseka’s victory on January 26.”

Moulana returns from US to back Rajapaksa

leave a comment »

Former UNP National List MP Ali Zahir Moulana will join President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s presidential election campaign this week. Moulana quit his seat in early 2004 and took refuge in the US fearing an LTTE assassination attempt on his life over helping one-time LTTE strongman Karuna to reach Colombo.

Well informed sources told The Sunday Island that President Rajapaksa had accommodated Moulana on the Sri Lankan mission in Washington over a year ago. Now it was Moulana’s turn to help the President with his campaign, sources said.These sources said that Moulana played a critical role in previous UNP campaigns in the East. The UNP had to accommodate Moulana on its National List in keeping with a controversial understanding with the SLMC which barred the UNP from fielding any Muslims in some districts at the April 2004 parliamentary polls.

These sources said that several other political appointees accommodated at Sri Lankan missions abroad are back in Colombo to support the President’s campaign.They said that Moulana would come out strongly against the UNP leadership for cold shouldering him over the Karuna affair.

Decision to please Karuna rescinded by Cabinet meeting on 16th as Ferial opposes

leave a comment »

The Cabinet decision taken last week to please National Integration Minister Vinayagamoorthy Muralitharan (Karuna) was withdrawn by a Cabinet decision at a meeting on 16th, because Housing Minsiter Ferial Ashroff took offence at this decision. This action to stop was because of the decision to appoint a new Secretariat at ‘Kalmunai North’

All these years, it was only the Kalmunai District secretariat which was functioning. This Secretariat was represented most by Tamils and Muslims. At the request of Minister Karuna., this Secretariat was to become the Kalmunai North secretariat with the increase of 27 Gramaseva divisions of Kalmunai to 29. The Cabinet took a decision last week to create the Kalmunai North Secretariat. However, as Kalmunai is considered as a main Town of the Muslims, the Muslims lodged strong protests against this decision as the Muslims can be deprived of Kalmunai. On this basis, Minster Ferial Ashroff had objected to this earlier decision at 16th Cabinet meeting. Consequently, the earlier cabinet decision was suspended
