[TamilNet, Sunday, 08 August 2004, 17:31 GMT]
Mr. S.Elilan, Trincomalee district political of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) and Mr.H.Y.Hithayathulla, and Secretary of the Kinniya Jamiathul Ulama Council (Muslim Theologian Council) Saturday addressing Kurankupanchan Muslim farmers pledged to work for the unity of Tamils and Muslims in the Trincomalee district.

Mr.Elilan said there was no reason for disunity among Tamils and Muslims in this region. Tamils and Muslims should work jointly for the development of their areas in the district in future.

"We should promote mutual understanding and confidence between the two communities in the district," said Mr.Elilan.

Mr.Elilan appealed to Muslim farmers to co-operate with the LTTE to safeguard the forestry by not cutting down live trees. Natural resources in the district, which needed for safeguarding the environment, should be protected from wanton destruction.

Mr.Elilan said about three hundred carts are removing dead firewood from the areas between Kinniya and Thampalakamam daily. In the name of dead firewood, live trees are also cut down and transported. LTTE's forestry preservation unit has formulated a scheme for removing dead firewood. Every cartload of dead firewood would be charged Rs: 50.

Mr. Hithayathullah said that Tamils and Muslims couldn't live divided in the Trincomalee district. The division between the two communities would cause irreparable loss to Muslims and Tamils in the district.

Mr. Hithayathullah commended the LTTE leadership in Trincomalee for having come forward to address the longstanding grievances of Muslim farmers in the area favourably.
