Mar 21, Colombo: Muslim ally of Sri Lanka's governing party, the Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) says the issues faced by the Muslim community in the country have not yet been solved.

SLMC General Secretary M.T. Hasan Ali has told an English daily newspaper that issues faced by the Muslims in the country have not been resolved even though the party has been a coalition partner of the government for a long time.

He has observed that the Muslim community is now hopeful that the SLMC will join with the Tamil National Alliance (TNA).

He has pointed out that the Muslims' issues have not been addressed even five years after the end of the war.

Hasan Ali has explained that there are unresolved issues of 3,000 acres of lands belonging to farmers in the Ampara District in the Eastern Province and the Muslims who cannot speak Sinhala are unable to get the problems resolved through Sinhala speaking public officials.
