* Anti-Muslim campaign in Sri Lanka could be detrimental to country internationally, Opposition warns
Wed, Feb 13, 2013, 09:46 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 13, Colombo: Sri Lanka's main opposition United National Party (UNP) says the anti-Muslim campaign in the country would have a detrimental impact on the country at time when the international community has already made many allegations against the government on its inaction to protect the democratic rights of citizens.

UNP Kegalle District parliamentarian Kabir Hashim has said the country might have to face the implications during the UN sessions this month.

The MP has felt that the government's action in addressing the recent campaign against the Muslims in the country has not been sufficient.

He has added that the statement made by Leader of the House Minister Nimal Siripala de Silva in parliament on the matter had not even acknowledged that there is an anti-Muslim campaign in the country.

According to Hashim, the Muslim political leaders in the government have remained silent on the matter.

"The protection for all communities is enshrined in our Constitution and we should look to Leaders who will enforce the Constitutional guarantees given to all citizens," he has said.
