Raviraj worked for Tamil, Muslim unity- Muslim Federation

[TamilNet, Saturday, 11 November 2006, 15:55 GMT]
The Federation of All Mosques and Organizations in Eastern Province (FAMOEP), in a statement issued Saturday, expressed its deep sorrow over the death of Mr.Nadarajah Raviraj, and said "Muslims of North East revere Raviraj as a Tamil leader who had given an important place in his heart for the well-being of Muslims." The statement was signed by FAMOEP President Alhaj Moulavi S.L.M.Haniffa.

FAMOEP severely condemned the brutal assassination of Raviraj in daylight in Colombo and demanded the Sri Lanka government to conduct an impartial investigation and to bring the culprits before the court of law without fail.

The FAMOEP further requested the government to take immediate steps to halt gruesome and brutal killings of innocent persons now taking place in Sri Lanka.

Mr. Raviraj worked tirelessly for the liberation of Tamil speaking people in the North East and also vehemently advocated the unity of Tamils and Muslims. He openly expressed regret in public platforms for the suffering the Muslim people had undergone in the North East during war period, the statement added.
