A group has abandoned the all Ceylon Jamaith Ulama or the organisation known otherwise as the Islamic theologian's organisation based on the Dambulla mosque incident.
The group which had proselytized in this manner are to function here after under the title 'Lanka Jamiththu Ulama Council'.
Secretary of the council Mohammed Carder expressed these views for having abandoned the All Ceylon Jamaith Ulama organisation.
Meanwhile the All Ceylon Jamiat Ulema requests the country's Muslim community to abstain from engaging in protest activities today.
The protests which were sparred recently were based on the Dambulla mosque incident.
Chairman of the Matale district Majlist Forum Mohammed Mukhtar urged the Muslim community of the country to pray for justice on this behalf, followed by the Friday Jumma prayers.
Accordingly prayers will be observed at all mosques located islandwide today.
