In a letter to President Mahinda Rajapaksa, the leader of the National Unity Alliance and member of the Central Provincial Council, Azad Sally has drawn attention to attempts being made to demolish a mosque in Dambulla.
In his letter, Azad Sally notes that the initial attempt to bring down the sixty-five-year old mosque in Dambulla, initiated by a so called ‘hidden hand’ continues to haunt the current administration.
The Central Provincial Councillor reminds President Rajapaksa that during a general meeting, the President assured the Muslim community that the mosque in Dambulla would not be touched.
The leader of the National Unity Alliance also notes that the mosque in question has been in existence since 1964 and that it was constructed with the support of the people of the area and the support of the Chief Incumbent of the Dambulla Raja Maha Viharaya.
In conclusion, Sally urges President Rajapaksa to bring such incidents under control.
