“Anti-Muslim Violence Is A Conspiracy To Damage Sri Lanka-Pakistan Relations”

Pakistan media has stated today that attacks against the Muslim community of Sri Lanka are part of a larger conspiracy to damage strong bilateral relations between Sri Lanka and Pakistan.

An editorial  carried in ‘Pakistan Observer’ today states that there is a growing tension between the Sinhalese and Muslim communities of Sri Lanka.

“We have no doubt that these demonstrations are being engineered by the enemies of traditional and historic relations between Sri Lanka and Pakistan and other Muslim countries. This relationship is flourishing and gaining depth, which is detrimental to the interests of enemies of Sri Lanka. Traditionally Buddhists are peace-loving people but their sentiments were earlier aroused in Myannmar as well where they killed Rohingya Muslims and burnt their houses. Certainly this is the work of enemies of Sri Lanka and the President Mahinda Rajapaksa has announced an investigation and said the government will not allow any one to take the law into their own hands,” Pakistan Observer states today.

Pakistan Observer also urges the people of Sri Lanka to act in restrain with the aim of defeating the “conspiracy” to damage bilateral relations between the two countries.

“We would urge the people of Sri Lanka, who are otherwise peace loving and hospitable, including Muslims and Buddhists to understand the complexities of the situation, sinister designs of the perpetrators and demonstrate maturity and foil all the conspiracies to create divisions among them,” the Editorial said.

Meanwhile, the Pakistan diplomatic mission has also urged the government of Sri Lanka to take action against those who are behind “anti-Muslim violence” in Beruwala, Aluthgama and Dharga Town.
