TNA parliamentarians meet Kinniya Muslim religious leaders

[TamilNet, Sunday, 07 December 2003, 17:32 GMT]
Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentarians Mr.R.Sampanthan and Mr.K.Thurairetnasingham Sunday held discussions with the leaders of the Kinniya Jamiathul Ulama Council (Muslim Theologians) at the office of the Kinniya Police station in an effort to restore normalcy in the division hit by several incidents of violence since November 26.

Parliamentarian Mr.Sampanthan told the Muslim delegation that the TNA would not tolerate any injustice done to Muslims.

Muslims and Tamils should join hands to find a lasting and sustainable political solution to the ethnic conflict, Mr.Sampanthan said.

"If we, Tamils and Muslims are divided there will not be peace in the country and our problems also would not be resolved. Further we have to suffer forever," Mr.Sampanthan said.

Kinniya Jamiathul Ulama Council delegation led by its secretary Mr.A.R.Hithayathullah briefed the TNA parliamentarians the background of the violence and said it was high time to put a stop to the violence and to restore normalcy in the division, sources said.

Ulama delegation brought to the notice of the TNA MPs that all the seven killed in the violence in the Kinniya division were Muslims. The delegation added that the Ulama council had taken every step to arrest deteriorating situation on behalf of their community.
