A felicitation ceremony for the Muslim Parliamentarians elected for the eighth Parliament of Sri Lanka, hosted by the ACJU, was held on Tuesday, 1 September at the ACJU head office. The representatives of civil societies and Muslim organisations participated in this event, which was chaired by ACJU President Ash-Sheikh Mufti Rizwe.

The session commenced with recitation of the Holy Quran by ACJU Youth Affairs Division Secretary Ash-Sheikh Arkam Nooramith and the compering of ACJU Fatwa Committee Secretary Ash-Sheikh Hashim Shoori.

ACJU General Secretary Ash-Sheikh Ahamed Mubarak, who presented the welcome address, appreciated the Parliamentarians and representatives of the Muslim organisations and the Civil Societies for accepting ACJU’s invitation amidst their busy schedule. He brought to light the dedication and sacrifice of the past Muslim Parliamentarians while appreciating the contemporary Muslim MPs who have been serving the country and the people. He pointed out some important advice and guidelines to the Muslim MPs who were present at the event.

Ash-Sheikh A.C. Agar Mohamed, one of the vice presidents of ACJU, in his speech explained the duties and responsibilities of the Muslim Parliamentarians and he further elaborated the important services that are required to be rendered by the Muslim Parliamentarians to the country and the people.    

Mufthi Rizwe in his address stressed the fact that the Muslim politicians should have the qualities of unity in diversity in politics, tolerance and most importantly forgiving one another and should carry forward their services. He also briefly highlighted present challenges faced by the country and the Muslim community.

He further stated, “You all have been presented with a souvenir; it is not only a token of appreciation but also therein it contains 11 point codes of conduct, which itself would be sufficient Insha Allah to reform oneself spiritually, if practiced in life.” 

Representing the Muslim organisations, Muslim Council of Sri Lanka (MCSL) President Al Haj N.M. Ameen, National Shoora Council (NSC) Secretary Ash Sheikh S.H.M Faleel and on behalf of the Muslim Members of Parliament Al Haj Rauff Hakeem, leader of Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) addressed the event.

Finally all Muslim Parliamentarians were felicitated by the awarding of a souvenir and a set of publications of ACJU.
