Resettled Muslims oppose Jaffna SLMC meet

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 06 October 2004, 16:23 GMT]
''Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) high command's decision to hold its public meeting in Jaffna would create rift between Tamils and Muslim who now live in cordial atmosphere,'' said a statement released in Jaffna Wednesday by the resettled internally displaced Muslim families, civil sources in Jaffna said.

The SLMC is not consistent in its stand on the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) and the Tamil liberation struggle. In this circumstance the SLMC decision to hold its public meeting in Jaffna would do irreparable damage to the renewed effort to forge unity between the two communities at a time when resettled internally displaced Muslim families are engaged in repairing their damaged houses and recommencing their business activities in Jaffna, the pamphlet said.

SLMC decision is a shortsighted one and taken without giving due consideration to the future of Jaffna Muslims, the pamphlet added.

The statement warned that Jaffna resettled Muslims would organize protest campaign against SLMC decision.

SLMC has decided to hold its public meeting Jaffna on 10 October, which coincides with Tamil Eelam Women’s Day.
