Muslim families allowed to resettle in Thenmaradchchi HSZ

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 25 May 2004, 19:25 GMT]
The Sri Lanka Army Monday allowed five internally displaced Muslim families to resettle in their houses located in the high security zones in Thenmaradchchi in Jaffna district. SLA officials of the 53rd Brigade handed over the keys of the five houses to the legal Muslim owners in the presence of Thenmaradchchi Division Secretariat officials, sources said.

These five Muslims who were earlier residing in the Jumma Mosque in the area are now living in their houses, which are located in the coastal area along Chavakachcheri-Thanankilappu Road, sources said.

Muslim families in the Jaffna district were displaced in 1990. In Chavakachcheri area about 83 houses of Muslim families have been occupied by the SLA in the name of high security zones, sources said.

About five Muslim families returned to Chavakachcheri recently to resettle in their houses. But they were prevented by the SLA to do so. Hence they sought refuge in Jumma Mosque, which is located along Chavakachcheri-Thanankilappu road, sources said.
