Lanka Muslim leaders call for ‘punishment’

Top Muslim leaders in Sri Lanka yesterday demanded “maximum punishment” for the perpetrators of suicide bomb attacks on Christian churches and luxury hotels in the country that left at least 290 dead. The comments came as the government refused to give details of at least 24 people arrested over the Easter Sunday attacks for fear of fanning ethnic tensions. Scores of Christians were among the dead. “We urge the government to provide security to all religious sites and to give maximum punishment to everyone involved in these dastardly acts,” said the All Ceylon Jamiyyathuul Ulama, or council of Muslim theologians.
