NP Governor urged to allow Muslims to resettle in Jaffna without restrictions

[TamilNet, Saturday, 14 August 2010, 05:41 GMT]
Sri Lanka Deputy minister of resettlement Vinayagamoorthy Muralitharan alias Karuna had said during his recent visit to Jaffna that the uprooted Muslims located in other parts of Sri Lanka including Puththa'lam living in houses given to them by Sri Lanka government should hand them back and the relief measures to them will be stopped if they choose to resettle in Jaffna. This has caused anger among the Muslims uprooted due to war and the president of one of their associations took the matter to Northern Province Governor at his Jaffna residence Thursday, sources in Jaffna said.

Maulavi Suffian, the president of the association of uprooted Muslims, urged Governor Major Gen. G. A. Chandrasiri that Muslims should be allowed to resettle in Jaffna without any restriction.

He further requested the governor to evict the persons occupying the shops and properties of uprooted Muslims in Jaffna and Chu'n'naakam .

The uprooted Muslims resettled in Jaffna have not been given any assistance by Sri Lanka government.
