LTTE, Muslim leaders meet in Muttur

[TamilNet, Saturday, 28 January 2006, 15:03 GMT]
A discussion between the leaders of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) in Trincomalee and a twenty-member delegation of Muslim religious and civil leaders in Muttur division was held Saturday afternoon in the LTTE district political secretariat in Sampoor in Muttur east in the presence of the members of the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM), sources said. The discussion centered on exploring ways to resolve differences and to promote mutual understanding between the two communities. The meeting follows in the wake of the formation of an armed Muslim group in Muttur division.

Colonel Sornam, LTTE Trincomalee district special commander, and Mr.S.Elilan, Trincomalee district political head and Muslim religious and civil leaders from the villages, Muttur, Thoppur, Jinna Nagar and Azath Nagar attended the discussion, sources said.

The murder of two Tamil civilians that took place on Tuesday morning and Wednesday night in the government controlled Muttur town came up for discussion.

LTTE leaders brought to the notice of the Muslim religious and civil leaders the existence of an armed Muslim group in their areas that could impact the improving trust and amity between the two communities, sources said.

Committees comprising local Muslim leaders in villages under the government controlled areas were formed during the discussion to deal with resolving disputes between the two communities, sources said.
