Thu, Jan 16, 2014, 09:21 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 16, Colombo: Ally of Sri Lanka's governing party, the Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) has called on the government to appoint a commission to investigate the grievances of the Muslim people in the Northern and Eastern provinces.

General Secretary of the SLMC, parliamentarian M.T. Hassan Ali has said that a Presidential Commission should be appointed to look into the grievances of the Muslims in the North and East and provide solutions to their problems.

He said the party is not satisfied with the performance of the Presidential Commission on Disappearances since the government does not have proper figures of the deceased and displaced Muslims.

According to Hassan Ali, Muslim community has had to face difficulties since 1990 when the Muslims were evicted from the North.

The parliamentarian called on the government to pay attention to the Muslim community as well.
