Ampara to be run by Muslims – JHU
The JHU yesterday condemned the SLMC over its suggestion that the districts be divided on ethnic and religious lines. SLMC had suggested to government that they establish a separate Muslim administration in the Ampara District, as the majority in that district are Muslims.
Commenting, the JHU said that carrying out such a request would separate the Muslims from the rest of the people in the country, being a separatist and extremist move.
Meanwhile, the National Sangha Council’s Rajawatte Wappa Thera, who addressed a meeting in Colombo Tuesday (4) said, “This is a small country and it cannot be divided on the basis of ethnicity or religion, according to the whims and fancies of certain parties. We cannot tear the country to pieces so that one person can secure his power, it is the greatest harm one can do to the country.”
He therefore, asked the defence establishment and the government to pay special attention to such demands and stop the likelihood of the country being fragmented. “We ask that they save the country from such a disaster,” the Thera said.

SLMC leader signed a pact with the terrorist leader, Velupillai, the man who ordered the massacre of so many Muslims in a mosque in the East and also drove out Muslims from the North after robbing them. Hakkim is a coward and had no shame. He made pacts with the devil and not with Allah. He is now making pacts with the TNA who was the political wing of LTTE.
By dividing this small country along ethnic and religious lines they hope to rule their areas independently but with aid from the West in return to be their puppet.
SL will never allow this and will never withdraw the army from the North and the East, for security reasons. In fact these camps must be further strengthened. We need also to strengthen our naval base and air force in Trinco and around the country with aid from China with modern radar system and ditch the rubbishy system India sold us when they updated theirs with a good system from Israel.
Time to fly in a helicopter… lol
Well said Niyame !.
We Sinhalese are always thinking of harmony, integration, corporation and multiculturalism. But cat is jumping out from time to time from Muslim (and Tamil) groups.
We have to think of a separate Grama Niladhari division for Hakeem to be the king as a Grama Niladhari there.
