Four gazettes reportedly impacting the Northern Muslim resettlement process in Wilpattu proximity are to be rescinded.

“I informed the officials that I will present a Cabinet Paper to do way with the gazettes affecting resettlement of Northern Muslim IDPs.” said Minister of Industry and Commerce and Vanni District MP Rishad Bathiudeen on 31 March in Colombo.

Minister Bathiudeen was speaking to some members of the press shortly after meeting a team of government officials led by Secretary to the President P. B. Abeykoon at the Presidential Secretariat.


Minister Bathiudeen, who met them to present his side of story, demanded the degazetting of the Weppal, Karadikkuli/Marichakatti, and Wilathikulam areas declared by Extraordinary Gazette 2011/34 of March 24, 2017 since they were inhabited by people including Northern Muslims displaced due to terrorism. The recent Gazette 2011/34 also has also declared Mavillu, and Periyamadu reserves in addition. “But, I did not insist on these two locations since they are not inhabited and gazetting them do not affect Northern Muslim IDPs,” he said.

The gazettes Minister Bathiudeen wants done away with through a Cabinet Paper are the Gazette 1779/15 of 10 October 2012 which claimed 6,042 Hectares  of  Marichikaddi/Karadikkuli Forest Reserve,  the gazette bearing the number 1759/2 of 21 May 2012 which claimed 2,108 hectares of Vilathikulam Forest Reserve, and  gazette 2011/34 dated 24 March 2012  which claimed 40,030.525 Hectares of Mavillu Conservation Forest. “I have asked them to return to the original families living in those villages prior to eviction in 1990. Apart from presenting Cabinet paper seeking the withdrawal of the three gazettes of 2012, I have requested the officials to withdraw the recent Extraordinary Gazette 2011/34 of March 24, 2017. “The LTTE forcibly evicted the entire Muslim Population of the North in 1990-the worst ethnic cleansing exercise in the history of Sri Lanka.  These Muslim victims were forced to leave their homes in 24 hours from these lands now declared as conserved forests.”

Among the 24,000 Northern Muslim families expelled by LTTE on October 30, 1990 from their traditional homes and became overnight IDPs, was the eight-member family of the present Vanni MP and Minister Rishad Bathiudeen.

  1. Ancient Sinhalaya Says:

    Sri Lanka Multiplying Community aka SLMC multiplying like xxxx and will soon need whole of Sri Lanka to
    accommodate new mussies. Their Baby Machine Wives working round the clock to make more and more mussie
    babies (votes). That’s how these xxxx stole old Buddhist iran, afganisthan, pakesthan, bangladesh, maldives,
    malaysia and indonesia within a few hundred years of their arrival in those countries. Google Buddhist heritage
    in those countries and you will see.

    No Sinhalese deshapaluwan open his/her mouth to protest about these multiplying mussies xxxx fearing losing
    their votes. So the mussies multiply and multiply. What Sinhala moda deshapaluwa don’t know is as soon as
    mussie number high enough, they kick the Sinhala/tamil deshapaluwa and put one of their own. Put even a
    mussie brick, it will still win. Policy doesn’t matter to mussies. It is the brotherhood. They want to make Sri Lanka another pakesthan or afganisthan.

    Traitor tamils keep quiet thinking it is destroying Sinhalese. But the traitor tamils don’t know soon as they finish
    it will be their demise in the hands of multiplying mussies. Remember what happened to Batticoloa? Previously
    tamil, now mussie town. In pakesthan, iran or afganisthan 0000000 hindus lives today.Traitor don’t want to know. Hope maru sira at least do this and stick to his guns to stop multiplying mussie xxxx menace!

    These fast multiplying mussies don’t know they are following a wrong road to get to their so called heaven.
    Charles Darwin proved beyond anybody’s doubt how the life started on this planet. There is no creator. It started
    with most primitive life form and developed. Then they adjust to the nature to survive and become different
    different species. This is accepted the world over today without a shred of doubt. Just like it was explained
    by the Lord Buddha. We all know going on the wrong road will never get you to the desired destination. Religion of
    voilence and Fastest Breeding Religion, pause for a moment and think. Are you on the right road? Going on the
    wrong road, you accrue more sins!
