No Jihadi groups : Defence Secretary
The Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa denied the media falsifying when representatives of the All Ceylon Jamiyathul Ullama (ACJU) and Muslim Council met Secretary Defence Mr. Gotabaya Rajapaksa recently to discuses the unrest due to the Grease Yakka incidents in Muslim areas . It is noted that Some media publicize that there are Jihad groups, Islamic terrorist groups are operating in our country they are behind the Grease Yakka incidents.
The media showed off their un-professionalism by falsifying the actual incident and deliberately omitting key incidents. They misled the public to believe the actual culprits were the Muslim community not only in Puttalam but also in other areas such as Valachanai Irakkamam, Sammanthurai Pottuvil, Kinniya, Muthur and Kattankudy , Kalmunai.
