Risath asks CID to probe Rohingya claim Featured

Minister Risatha Bathiudeen says he lodged a complaint with the CID, seeking an immediate investigation into racist remarks by certain websites and social media sites that accuse him of bringing Rohingya Muslims of Myanmar to Sri Lanka for settlement.

He told Sri Lanka Mirror that he has not made any statement inviting Rohingya Muslims into the country.

The racist conspirators, who involve him by such claims and try to create clashes in the country where Sinhalese, Tamils and Muslims live in coexistence, need to be exposed, he said.

Such racists surfaced from time to time in post-independence Sri Lanka, but they would not be allowed to create disunity among Sri Lankans who suffered due to 30 years of war, Bathiudeen added.
