Attempt to set mosque on fire


An attempt was allegedly made to torch the Thalayan Bawa Jumma Masjid of Ratmalana around 1:30 am yesterday.

Some old clothes had been set on fire at the base of the door of the shrine.

The wife of the Mosque Trustee raised alarm on seeing the fire and neighbours rushed there and doused it.

The police arrived there with sniffer dogs to trace the culprits. No arrests had been made until this ediction went to press. Central Provincial Councilor (UNP) Azath Salley is seen in the picture inspecting the mosque.
