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.

He pointed out that the All Ceylon Jamiyaathul Ulama (ACJU), Muslim clerics' organization which is the local authority for Halal certificate had rendered a yeoman service to Sri Lanka against international pressure on the country in Geneva last year.

The Deputy Minister says the perpetrators of the anti-Muslim agitations aim to dishonor the government.
