Friday, 14 June 2019

Speaker Karu Jayasuriya meeting with Ambassadors of 17 Islamic countries has assured that the island nation will combat extremism and emerge as a untied nation.”Just as Sri Lanka neutralized terrorism and ensured security in a short time, the country will shun extremism and emerge as a strong unified nation,” the Speaker told the concerned envoys who met the Speaker on Tuesday at the parliamentary complex.

 

Speaker Jayasuriya told the ambassadors that Parliament Oversight Committees in coordination with relevant ministries are formulating laws to prevent terrorism and the extremism that nourishes the terrorist activities. “I believe that will build foundation to live as a unified Sri Lanka nation in one country under one law,” the Speaker said.

The speaker gratefully recalled the support and guidance received from Islamic leaders as well as a majority of Muslim people to take action against extremist acts such as child marriages, polygamy and identity concealing attire and educational institutions that promote extremism in the guise of religion.
