All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat, the apex body of Indian Muslim organisations, condemned the continuing attacks on the Muslim minority in Sri Lanka. Speaking in New Delhi on 18 June, Dr Zafarul-Islam Khan, President of AIMMM, said the continuing attacks, murders and burning of Muslim localities and uprooting of thousands of Muslims by armed Sinhala extremists is a blot on the face of Sri Lanka and proves that the Sri Lankan government has not learnt any lesson from the Tamil revolt which was extinguished at great cost over three decades of blood-letting. Dr Khan appealed to the Sri Lankan government to check Sinhala extremists before the violence snowballs into a major conflict. (MG)
