Islam is a minority religion in Sri Lanka with 9.7% of the Sri Lankan population practice Islam.
On March 13 2021, Sri Lanka’s minister of public security announced that the government will ban the wearing of the burqa and close more than 1,000 Islamic schools in the country.
The minister was quoted as saying that “the burqa is a sign of religious extremism and has a direct impact on national security”.
Since these announcements, the lives of nearly two million Muslims in Sri Lanka has been made hell. Many parts of the country have seen anti-Muslim violence and in some cases, mobs have killed many innocent Muslims. Donate generously towards our appeal and help us save the Muslims in Sri Lanka.
