Wigneswaran calls for unity

wignes2     Speaking after visiting a Mosque in Jaffna, Wigneswaran said that Tamils and Muslims must join hands to make a change in the North, the Jaffna Tamil media reported.

Muslim groups in the North, especially in Mannar had, prior to the Northern Provincial Council elections, raised concerns over the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) winning the elections.

However Wigneswaran says he is keen to work with the Muslims and that the time has come for religious differences to be put aside and people to live as people.

“Those who have faith in God should place humanity first and live together with others,” he said.

He recalled that the TNA has appointed a Muslim as a Minister in the Northern Provincial Council in order to ensure Muslim issues are also addressed.
