New Delhi, 07 March: The President of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, Maulana Syed Jalaluddin Umari has expressed concern over the situation in Sri Lanka. In a statement to the media, JIH chief said: ”We are deeply concerned about reports coming from Sri Lanka related to imposition of an emergency to control large scale violence against Muslims in the towns around the city of Kandy. We urge the government of Sri Lanka to take stern action against the rioters and quickly address fears regarding the safety and security of Muslims in the affected areas’’.

Maulana Umari advised that: ‘’There are certain Sri Lankan lawmakers who are using provocative language while some local religious leaders are inciting violence. They should be apprehended and confidence building measures should be initiated so that normalcy is restored as soon as possible. Jamaat welcomes the statement of Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe who has condemned the targeting of minorities as “racist and violent acts.” and asked for being aware of the values of peace, respect, unity and freedom’’.

Regarding India’s role the JIH President said: ‘’Jamaat-e-Islami Hind urges the government of India to partner with the Sri Lankans to ensure a swift resolution of the problem and support them to counter the violence against minorities”.
