A Mosque was burnt down in Anuradhapura last October (2012). The perpetrators of this crime have not been identified as yet, but last week, an extremist group of Buddhist monks went to the same area and protested to remove the mosque there. They argue that it is a sacred area for Buddhists.

While they protested the district agent came there and made a statement that he would remove the mosque within three months. He did not consult the Muslims who lived in the area before making this statement. And also this extremist group has forced all Muslims in this area to flee.

Now, once again yesterday (9thJanuary 2012) early morning (2.00 am) some unknown elements came and attacked this mosque. This mosque and 42 Muslim families who called it home in are in a bad situation.
