Muslim MPs to re-assume duties

Friday, 12 July 2019

Muslim members of parliament, who resigned from ministerial portfolios over allegations to have connections with Easter bombings, have decided to re-assume duties in their respective ministries.

This was, when a conversation regarding the concern was carried out in Parliament yesterday (11).

However, since the President is out of the country, the decision is yet to be informed. The Prime Minister has been informed regarding the decision.

Following the events of the Easter Sunday (April 21), Muslim ministers were heavily denounced by many parties alleging to have connections with the terrorist attacks, and former minister Rishard Bathiudeen and former governors Azad Salley and Mohamed Hizbullah were accused by Parliamentarian Venerable Athuraliye Rathana Thera, who had launched a death fast demanding their dismissal as well.
