Conference and Seminar on Current Situation of Muslims of Sri Lanka
- Assalamu Alayykum Wa Rahmatullah
Some concerned Sri Lankan Muslims are considering to organize a
conference and a Seminar on Current Situation of Sri Lankan Muslims. The proposed seminar and conference would take place in Colombo
in April 2002, insha allah.
Currently Muslims of Sri Lanka are facing a very crucial time.It's felt
that muslim factor should be considered in any negotiations or
settlements with any terrorist or rebel groups. As the government of Sri
Lanka is taking many steps towards settlement of ethnic crisis, Muslims
have to put their view points forward in order to be considered as a
legal minority within another minority. Muslims shouldn't forget that
they have suffered enough at the hand of Tamils and Sinhalease in the
past. Also Sri Lankan Muslim community differs from other Sri Lankan
communities by a number of ways.
It is anticipated that a seminar (in Tamil) followed by an international
conference (in English) would bring many ignored/ neglected views to
light which should attract policy makers of the ethnic issue.
If any of you are interested, to participate in the seminar or conference, present a paper or contribute for its success financially or by other means please feel free contact me, then I would forward your details to the action committee. insha allah.
