I understand the aspirations and cultural value of the Muslim community

Former President Mahinda Rajapakshe stated that he understood very well the aspirations and cultural value of the Muslim community since he moved with them so closely from the younger days than any other political leader in the country.

Speaking at a Muslim religious function at the PeeraSahiboMakkamMajid, Hultsdorf, Colombo on December 21 the former president said people of one religion should be  helpful  to other religionists; people of one community should be of assistance to other communities; this is the best way to promote inter-communal  harmony, brotherhood  and reconciliation.

The late Muslim  scholar Alhaj MoulaviNiyas Mohamed (Gaffoori) was a model unto all communities and proved how to promote such sterling qualities among all people, he added.

Meanwhile issuing a media release on behalf of Progressive Muslim Front  A H M Azwer said the Muslims can trust Former President Mahinda Rajapakshe and need not be swayed away by politically motivated propaganda.  and adding that Former President Mahinda Rajapakshe would be of assistance to them as much as he would help the Sinhalese and Tamils.
