Save the Muslims in Sri Lanka

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.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Humanity Care Relief to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Humanity Care Relief we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Humanity Care Relief to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Humanity Care Relief will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Humanity Care Relief receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.

The Anti Muslim Movement in Sri Lanka

After gaining independence from the British in 1948, Sri Lanka witnessed some of the worst violence in its history. A decades-long civil war ended in 2009. Just when the world thought Sri Lanka will be a land of peace and prosperity, an anti-Muslim movement was started by the same organisation which was involved in some of the worst atrocities during the civil war.

Using the name of getting rid of extremist Muslims Buddhist monks mobilised a campaign of hate towards the Muslim minority.

The group’s large public rallies and strident social media campaigns normalised hate speech and everyday low-intensity harassment of Muslims across the country. Incitement by the extreme Buddhists and the cultivation of anti-Muslim sentiment over the post-war years also led to violent attacks against small Muslim communities in 2014, 2017 and 2018. These Buddhist extremists also aligned themselves with similar groups in Myanmar who carried out atrocities against Rohingya Muslims.

The future of minorities in Sri Lanka looks bleak

UNHCR has passed a resolution calling on the Sri Lankan government to protect the rights of minorities in Sri Lanka. However, this resolution has little impact on the behaviour of fundamentalist Buddhist organisations. They are continuing harassing minorities and making Sri Lanka a tough place to live for thousands of families.

10 years after a devastating war the Sri Lankan government policies show little evidence of having learnt from its past.
