The Muslim Youth should group themselves into a powerful political Institution, Insha Allah, especially in the Eastern Province.
General Secretary of the SLMC, Hassanali is reported in the national media that he has foregone the post of General Secretary of the SLMC for a slot as a National list MP of the SLMC in parliament.
This is indeed surprising news. It seems that all politicians are of the same creed. I had great RESPECT for General Secretary Hassanali, as a personal friend and a political leader, but it seems that Hassanali has lost his political vision of the Muslims of the East.
The Muslim Youth should group themselves into a powerful political Institution, Insha Allah, especially in the Eastern Province. The Muslim politicians have hoodwinked and betrayed the Muslim Community wholesale.
We need to think with our “heads” NOT our “hearts”, Insha Allah. Politically analyzing the Muslim Community of Sri Lanka, we may be a community of around 1.97 million persons (Ummah) by population, but as a political power, WE ARE A POWER TO OURSELVES, you should realize, Insha Allah. That is the representation of our COMMUNITY and “The Muslim Voice” is a VOICE from among that Community, Alhamdulillah.
We have a Muslim Vote bank of nearly 600,000 (maybe more) in the 26 districts and 9 provinces of Sri Lanka. “The Muslim Voice” wants to tell the Muslim Community that – IT IS TIME UP THAT THE MUSLIMS SHOULD CREATE THIS POLITICAL FORCE NOW.
It is time up that a NEW POLITICAL FORCE that will be honest and sincere, to stand up and defend the Muslim Community politically and otherwise, especially from among the YOUTH, and safeguard the DIGNITY of our community has to emerge from within the Sri Lanka Muslim Community to face any new election in the coming future.
The Muslims should create a political force now to defend our position in the “Constitution”. Insha Allah.The Muslims should harness the support of the friendly Nationalist Forces, be they Sinhalese or Tamils (North and Upcountry) in defending our political position in the “Constitution”.
We should also support the MEDIA fully, Insha Allah.The rest we have to leave to God AllMighty Allah.
