Government and its leaders should immediately stop harassing the Muslim community in the country, this is how the harassment of Tamil people led to a 29 year War , we see lot of Muslim youth are posting serious comments on social media which is not a good sign Currently Muslim community is without a leader who can guide them, As a community without a leader the community is certainly going astray in many directions the trigger was due to cremation of Muslim Janazas without any scientific justification- the government has not shared its scientific basis for cremation only with the public (locally and internationally) in a transparent manner.

Hence, we as Sri Lankan Muslims are reluctantly compelled to conclude that our repeated request to include burial as an option for COVID-19 dead body disposal is not based in science but is an ideologically and a politically motivated decision to stigmatize the Sri Lankan Muslim population.
