Muslim Liberation Front urges Rajapaksa to disarm Pillayan group

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 10 June 2008, 17:59 GMT]
Sri Lanka Muslim Liberation Front (SLMLF) Tuesday appealed to SL President Mahinda Rajapaksa to take immediate steps to disarm Pillaiyan group operating in Batticaloa as it has been proved beyond doubts that this group is responsible for the recent attack on Muslim people in Kaathankudy and Eraa'vur. SLMLF general secretary M.I.M.Cader addressing a press briefing in Colombo Tuesday said Muslim youths would take up arms if government fails to disarm Pillayan group.

He appealed to Muslim politicians holding ministerial positions in the government to resign and work to safeguard the interest of the Muslim community.

There is no alternative for Muslim youths other taking up arms against armed group now operating in east especially in Batticaloa district and this would justify their stand, he added.
