Sri Lanka Muslim Congress MPs Faizal Cassim and Ali Zahir Moulana who resigned from their ministerial posts have sworn in again as State Ministers to their portfolios before President Maithripala Sirisena today.

Accordingly, the President's Media Unit announced today that Faizal Cassim was appointed as the State Minister of Health, Nutrition and Indigenous Medicine and Ali Zaheer Maulana was sworn in as the State Minister for Primary Industries and Social Empowerment.

All Muslim Ministers who represented the government resigned from their posts with the fast of Ven. Athuraliye Ratana Thero.

However, although other Muslim Ministers accepted Ministerial portfolios later, the two MPs of the Muslim Congress Faizal Qasim and Ali Zaheer Moulana did not accept their ministerial posts.
