* Sri Lankan government minister warns Muslim party ally
Thu, Mar 13, 2014, 08:04 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Mar 13, Colombo: A junior minister of the Sri Lankan government has warned one of the Muslim allies in the governing party, the Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) to conduct itself appropriately.

Deputy Investment Promotion Minister Faizer Mustapha has said that the SLMC should conduct itself properly if it wishes to stay in the government.

Referring to the report handed by the SLMC to UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navi Pillay, Mustapha said the SLMC has betrayed the nation, the people and politics.

He told the media that nothing however could distance or alienate the local and international Muslim community from Sri Lanka and the government.

"Here is a person (SLMC Leader, Minister Rauf Hakeem), who while being in government, had helped other parties during elections and had done everything to skin the hide of the government, and had then come back without any shred of decency to claim a ministerial post," the junior minister has said.

"However, the redeemable fact and saving grace are that most of the persons in his Party and the representatives of the Party, who are in the Pradeshiya Sabhas, work for the welfare of the masses," the Deputy Minister was quoted as telling to the media.
