Apr 19, Colombo: A Muslim religious body in Sri Lanka plans to meet with the President and the Chief Prelates (Mahanayake Theros) in order to discuss the suppression faced by the Muslim community.

The All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama (ACJU), which is a Muslim religious body of Islamic Theologians in Sri Lanka, has said that it hopes to meet with President Mahinda Rajapaksa and the Chief Prelate of the Asgiriya Chapter, Most Venerable Udugama Sri Buddharakkitha Thero.

ACJU's Media Unit Head, Moulavi, Aslam Zubair has said the body had made the decision to bring to the notice of the President and the Mahanayake, the suppression faced by the Muslim community at the hands of the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS).

Zubair has told the media that the actions of the BBS have hurt the Muslims in the country and that the BBS had also made horrendous remarks against the Holy Quran by misinterpreting its commands and has spitefully commented on its versus out of context.

He has added that the Muslims were hopeful that the President and the Mahanayake Theros would be able to intervene and prevent the problems faced by the Muslim community.
