Government is aware of the necessities of North East Muslims: Prime Minister
Prime Minister D. M. Jayaratne affirmed that Government is aware of the necessities of North East Muslims. Mr. Jayaratne pointed out that Muslim community’s contribution to end the three decade long civil war is commendable. Premier made these remarks at a discussion held with the Muslim theologians, the All Island Jamiyyathul Ulama Association.
Mr. Jayaratne also stated that Muslim community has a responsibility in building peace in the country and stressed the importance of incorporating the views of North East people to achieve national integration successfully.
