The State Ministry of Defence has addressed a letter to the President of All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama (ACJU) As-Sheikh Rizwe Mufthi denying a statement made by him at the all-religious leaders’ meeting held recently.

The Secretary of the ministry N.K.G.K. Nammawatta says, the President of ACJU had stated that he had handed over all information and documents regarding the IS-affiliated Islamist extremist in Sri Lanka to State Minister of Defence Ruwan Wijewardene in 2015.

The letter denies this claim, however, acknowledges the fact that As-Sheikh Rizwe Mufthi had met with the State Minister in 2015.

The State Ministry of Defence has urged As-Sheikh Rizwe Mufthi to rectify this misleading and misrepresentation of facts” and emphasized that legal actions would be taken against him if he fails to comply.

ACJU President As-Sheikh Rizwe Mufthi had made this statement at the all-religious leaders’ meeting held under the patronage of President Maithripala Sirisena on April 26th.
