Hakeem, Risath, their MPs sans one, off to Mecca Featured

Sri Lanka Muslim Congress leader Rauff Hakeem and All Ceylon People’s Congress leader Risath Bathiudeen, together with the MPs of their parties, left this evening (07) on pilgrimage to Mecca, reports say.

However, ACPC MP S.M. Ismail, who is said to be supporting the Mahinda Rajapaksa-led government, has not joined them.

Media reports say that he is being detained by state minister Hizbullah.

Mohamed succeeded UNF’s M.H.M. Navavi, who had resigned, and took oaths on 08 June.

At that time, the then higher education minister Wijayadasa Rajapakshe charged that Mohamed was accused of corruption when he was in the field of universities.

Speaking at a parliamentary debate, Rajapakshe also said COPE too, has leveled accusations against him.
