The island’s Muslim community continues to suffer from political and religious leadership crisis .Unless the civil society come forward and rescue, the community is heading towards a potentially disastrous future.
Under the existing circumstance the community cannot afford to hand over its destiny to corrupt politicians and equally corrupt religious leaderships. This is in view of the growing animosity towards the community by small groups of Sinhala racist mercenaries with their own agendas. It becomes worse with government indifference and the presence of global forces which are raping and ravaging Muslim countries all over.
The irony is that most Muslim parliamentarians do not represent the community as they entered into deals with winning parties and secured positions.
For example Muslim parliamentarians opposed the Provincial Council Elections (Amendment) Bill pointing out how and why it was detrimental to the interest of the community. However they voted in favor of the Bill saying their suggestions were accepted though these changes were of no use to the community.
