United National Parliamentarian Mujibar Rahman has observed that the Muslim people were living in fear and under threat during the regime of former President Mahinda Rajapaske.
He was giving an interview to a foreign channel. He added that with the change of regime Muslim people feel free to practice their religion without any coercion.
He stated that now there is an air of freedom in the community and they can move freely in all parts of the island without being harassed by racists simply because of their religion.
Commenting on the “Ceylon House,” which is a property of the island’s Muslims in Mecca, he claimed that it has to be redeemed from an individual who claims to be its owner and handed to a new group of trustees, who should be appointed by the Colombo government.
