Sam Speaks For Muslims, Condemns Violence Against Muslims In Ampara

R. Sampanthan, the Leader of the Opposition and the Leader Tamil National Alliance has condemned the violence against the Muslim community in Ampara.

We publish below the Sampanthan’s statement in full:

Rajavayothi Sampanthan

“I strongly condemn the attacks carried out against the Muslim community in Ampara. Any form of violence is not acceptable and I urge those who committed these unwarranted acts to create disunity and bring division among the communities to stay away from such activities and not to create ethnic tension among people. 

“I urge the government to take stern action against the preparators of the violence in Ampara and to take adequate measures to prevent such incidents being repeated in future.  We have witnessed such incidents in the past and we have experienced the repercussions of such unacceptable behaviour and actions. I urge the police and the other officials to enforce the law and order impartially.   

I humbly appeal to the religious leaders to ensure that peace and harmony are maintained in these areas and not to allow any extremist elements to take advantage of these incidents. 

“I appeal to the people in Ampara and other areas to remain calm and to set an example to others of the importance of unity among communities.”

    By and larger flirtation speech by Samapathan of TNA is anti-establishment political ,but official turn to leader of Oppositions Party seek alternative which is that doubtable by majority of Sinhalese people!
    Yes the TNA’s Opposition having right air his views of “Muslim dicramantion” by Sinhalese majority accepts …that is our of modern democratic values and norms that accommodated by our 2600 years civilization. We are fitted to be modern values ,ours is not Feudal line of political ideologies unlike Tamils politics of that TNA nexus Davian of draconian…dreams.
    Nonetheless to say that TNA leader is aim at & addressed to International Communities of USA, Canada, UK EU and other Anglo-Saxon whites race for target of new wave of political propagandas’ and agitation of to be justified claim of TNA for “Tamil Homeland”..Sri lanka!

    What else that TNA is fling up?. By using “legal” position of opposition Party of TNA (16 members- minority) Parliament look for ? Its political motivation and immoral of TNA once at sequence want that world public sensational feeling among other nations shows that sympathy for by claim of Sampatahn of TNA.. support for” Muslim regional autonomy” Island. .
    These type of incidents may occur in every nook-corner of globe any of democratic nations, are not that “new” to Sri lanka. What is aim of achieved .’.Muslim region’ in Eastern province Island ? Ne Islam state. Now advocated by TNA?
    Doing that TNA working on that drawling speech of Samapathan, want ISIS terrorist state in Central Part of Island?

    By this obvious which undoubtedly breeding ground of for the politics of religion Extremism and Terrorism . Islamism- extremism has proved which is drawback of ISIS politics through out the Globe! Nothing else is Outright Terrorism .
    It is sources of politics of Islam -religion by Muslim Congress and other Muslim political outlets.

    Are (TNA) you that intentionally that encouraging extremism like Tamil Nationalism of politics of LTTE terrorism . North …..side, at same time Islamism in Eastern provinces?
