Batticaloa Tamils protest against land grab by SL Minister Amir Ali

[TamilNet, Thursday, 04 June 2015, 19:23 GMT]
30 Eezham Tamil families, whose lands have been illegally seized by Sri Lankan Deputy Minister of Housing and Samurdhi Amir Ali Sahabdeen, protested on Thursday against the injustice, which has caused ethnic disharmony at Mu'raa-oadai village situated 4 km south of Vaazhaichcheani in Batticaloa district. The SL Minister who seized the lands by making false land deeds has handed over these lands to his supporters from other districts, the Tamil landowners accused.

SL Government Agent Mrs P.S.M Charles said she could not interfere into the matter until there is a verdict delivered by the SL court which is investigating the matter.

The SL police protection given to those occupants of the lands would continue until the case is resolved, she further said.

Amir Ali and Rishad Bathiyutheen belong to All Ceylon Muslim Congress (ACMC), which had split from the Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC).

The competition between SLMC and ACMC for wooing Muslim voters has resulted in communal disharmony.

Rishad Bathiudeen, the notorious Sri Lankan minister who has been unleashing communal hatred in Mannaar under the previous regime, continues to be a minister in the new regime of Maithiripala Sirisena.
