SLMC to reveal stand after nomination day- Hakim

[TamilNet, Saturday, 17 September 2005, 12:42 GMT]
The support of Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) in the coming presidential poll would be for a political party that would not act in to weaken the strength of the Muslim political leadership, which has been endorsed by majority Muslim people in Sri Lanka, said Mr.Rauff Hakim, Leader of SLMC participating as the chief guest in the fifth death anniversary religious event of SLMC founder leader late Mr.A.H.M.Ashraff held in Trincomalee Zahira College Friday evening.

Main political parties contesting the forthcoming presidential election are in agreement on what should not be given to Muslim people. But they are in agreement on the question of what rights are to be given to Muslim community. The agreements signed by one of the main political parties with Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) and Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) have proved this, said Mr.Rauff Hakim.

"We will decide our stand on the presidential poll after the nomination day on assessing the policies of the main political parties in regard to the problems confronting the Muslim community. The main political parties should come out with the proposals for an interim and permanent solution to Muslim problems and their legitimate political aspirations if they seek the SLMC support," stated Mr.Rauff Hakim.

Mr.M.S.Thowfeek and Mr.D.M.Thowfeek, former SLMC parliamentarians also spoke.
