Muslim Council writes to Ranil
COLOMBO: The Muslim Council of Sri Lanka has written to
Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe to clarify a statement he had
made at a recent book launch, where he has reportedly stated that Islam
was spread by armed force.
The Muslim Council of Sri Lanka expressed its deepest shock at the
distortion of historical fact contained in the statement, the letter
signed by Acting Secretary General M.D.M. Rizvi said.
“The Muslim community is very much concerned as this is not a
historical fact,” the letter added.
