Muslim World

Srilankan Police are investigating an attack on the Kegalle Jummah Mosque on the Colombo-Kandy Road after a group of unidentified persons allegedly stoned the building causing minor damage to the structure. Police Spokesman SSP Buddhika Siriwardane reportedly said that the attack had taken place around 2 a.m. on 28 February and that investigations were continuing into the incident, based on a complaint by the Chairman of the Mosque. Siriwardane said two windows had been broken in the attack. Chief Minister of the Sabaragamuwa Province, Maheelpala Herath visited the mosque and held discussions with police in the area. A conference of all religious leaders in the area had also been summoned to defuse any religious tension and take steps to keep calm in the area.
