Envoys of OIC countries concerned about situation

Ambassadors and High Commissioners of the OIC countries in Sri Lanka issuing a joint statement yesterday said the developing situation over the past few days has been extremely worrying with regards to the safety and protection of the Sri Lankan Muslim community.

The lives and livelihoods of Muslims, including their local stores and large business establishments, are threatened by the prevailing conditions with unforeseen, dangerous consequences, the statement said.

“Therefore, we, the representatives of the OIC countries, urge the friendly government of Sri Lanka to take every measure necessary to prevent communal violence and to take swift, stern judicial action against the perpetrators, regardless of their religious and political influence in the Sri Lankan society” it added.
