அநுராதபுரம், கிரலகல புராதன தூபியிருக்கும் இடத்தில் நின்று புகைப்பட மெடுத்து சமூக வலைத்தளத்தில் பதிவேற்றியிருந்த தென்கிழக்கு பல்கலைக்கழக பொறியியல்பீட இறுதியாண்டு மாணவர்கள் ஏழுபேர் கைதுசெய்யப்பட்டு விளக்கமறியலில் வைக்கப்பட்டுள்ள நிலையில், அவர்களுக்கு எதிராகக் கடுமையான நடவடிக்கை எடுக்கப்படும் என அமைச்சர் சஜித் பிரமதாஸ தெரிவித்துள்ளமை தொடர்பில் முஸ்லிம்கள் மத்தியில் மிகவும் கவலையை அளித்துள்ளது.
அதுதொடர்பாக கவிஞரும், எழுத்தாளரும்,ஊடகவியலாளரும், இலங்கை மாதர் பணியகத்தின் தலைவியும், சமூக செயற்பாட்டாளருமான தேசமானிய கலாரெத்னா கல்முனை ஜுல்பிகா ஷெரீப் விடுத்திருக்கும் செய்தி……
We thought you were a good man who understands the minorities. But you are also an average human being, and you have proved to be a race related thinker.We are worried…..
Our Sri Lanka is a small country. Many ethnic groups live here. In this situation, how can the people of this country live freely if they declare all the places that are “sacred…?!”
They are students who study in engineering. They can not have any reasons to disrespect your culture…..
The place is filled with rubble and some of the Sinhalese youth who have been wearing slippers in their legs. It is possible to think that our Muslim students may have followed it too…..
You can understand the mistake that the 7 students did not know and could have forgiven them with humanity. But you have arrested and remanded the students.
Is this the human dharma of the Holy Buddha? It seems to think….
Your Sinhalese community is destroying and burning Muslim mosques, houses and commercial areas. In the areas
where Muslim people live, the Sinhalese people violate the Buddhist statues. If the people mentioned this, the rulers do not mind…..
But you will only say “one country, one race…”. In practice our people have no benefit. Anyone should say and act together. All the people have the same justification…..
Our Muslim political leadership has been loyal to the Sinhala governments over the years. Nowadays, Muslim leaders are more likely to face the problems of the rulers than the problems of the people. Our People are also disappointed with them…..
That is why, Sinhalese rulers like you and people have often been giving hardships to our Muslim people.
It is now known that some Tamil parties are too embarrassed to the Muslims seems to be thinking…..
Not only the Sinhalese people, but the Muslim people also voted.Recently, the leaders and people of our Muslim parties supported your party when the sudden change in Sri Lankan politics.They went to court for justice. But you have ignored their legitimate demands…..
We thought you would behave in justice for the Muslim people. But you have to think that you have not changed too…..
please understand our community’s ambitions…..
The parents, family, relatives and all Muslim people of the detained students are weeping today.
They are students of your country. Do not waste their future. As a minister of this country, you have responsibilities in their case.Please take action to release those arrested students sir…..
“We respect you, your dignified father, your religion and culture ……..”
We want to live in harmony with all the people within a united Sri Lanka ……!
Thanking you sir….!
