Don’t punish all Muslims over actions of few – Mujibur
Parliamentarian Mujibur Rahman has urged the government not to punish and burden the majority of Muslims in the country owing to the actions of a very few individuals.
He said two million Muslims reside in the country and only a few are radicalised.
MP Rahman addressing Parliament yesterday said the government is taking steps to continue its political agenda and please some of its supporters.
He said the government is banning matters that were not associated with Zahran Hashim while failing to apprehend his close affiliates.
He said such moves will pave way for a more radicalised generation.
MP Rahman noted the government has a responsibility to safeguard all Sri Lankans.
He said the present government should not make pressing issues political slogans and push the country towards another extremist conflict.

Oh no Hon. Mujibur Rahman the government should not do that. They should punish only Muslim extremists. Contrary, what are the peace loving Muslims doing to stop this radicalism? What is the contribution of peace-loving Muslims stop these extremists?
I agree with this MP.
It is not Society’s role to enforce law. If Society is to enforce law, it then becomes ‘Mob Justice’ which itself is illegal.
The taxpayer funds the ‘Expert’ security apparatus including the Police Force to maintain law and order. Unfortunately, law enforcement agencies are plagued by corruption and political influence. Hence, enforcement of law and order is in shambles. The taxpayer’s funds are wasted.
If the law enforcement agencies perform well and work together with Civil Society, genuinely, Civil Society will extend its cooperation to the Agencies to fulfill their role.
