The Tamil and Muslim Societies are subjected and oppressed. They are now subjected and ruled. Hindu temples and Mosque desecrated even in this Government. Being united is our strength. Let’s think of that and act, said the Leader of the ITAK and TNA MP, Mawai Senathyrasa.
A special Ipthar of Jaffna Muslim people was held at the Tilco Hotel, Jaffna day before yesterday, Saturday, presided by Janab Abdul Kapoor Naubar. Mawai said as above participating in the Ipthar as a guest.
Elaborating further he said, when we were youths, the Muslim Society in Jaffna lived as a society with respectable life style. They They shone as examples to other Muslim societies of the Country. They were people who observed Islamic values.
Currently the relations between Tamil and Muslims had deteriorated. Certain forces are attempting to disturb even this situation. We should not allow this to happen. Tamil people are moving forward expecting a solution. Muslim people had understood this position.But more understanding is needed. Riots against Muslims are continuing from Puttalam to Aluthgama to Kandy and beyond. Like Thanthai Selva, TNA is raising its voice for Muslims. It is the need of the hour that Tamil and Muslim people should remain united, he said.
