Feb 13, Colombo: Sri Lanka Deputy Minister of Investment Promotion Faizer Mustafa says that a conspiracy is under way to alienate Muslims from the government.

Speaking to the state daily The Dinamina, Mustafa, a President's Counsel and the Chairman of the Muslim unit of ruling Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) said that Halal certificate is not forced on anybody.
