As everybody is aware, the country is going through a very traumatic period with lots of mistrust and misunderstanding amongst the ethnic and religious groups. This has affected the especially the Muslim community more than any others.
In this regard the initiatives taken by the Respected Venerable Maha Sangha is highly commendable. It should be noted that throughout the history of this Country, the Maha Sangha have played a very key role in bringing about Peace and Unity amongst the people of this country.
At a press conference held on 05.06.2019, they very clearly mentioned that they have no hatred or enmity towards the Muslims and called upon all citizens of the country to work towards reconciliation and build a United Sri Lanka.
From our side we would like to mention that the Ulama and the Muslim community were always against any form of Terrorism and were in the forefront to notify the Government about the dangers of certain groups and individuals.
The ultimate motive of such terrorist activities was to weaken the Country by bringing about distrust within the citizens. As Sri Lankans all of us should hold hands together and come forward to overcome and eliminate any form of Terrorism, Extremism and Racism in the country and to build a peaceful nation where each and every citizen enjoys their rights and contributes to the development of our Motherland.
We pray that Allah will bless our Motherland and shower Peace and Prosperity among all communities.
