A group of Muslim organizations today held a protest in Maradana against the formation of an organization called the ‘Sri Lanka-Jewish Friendship Association.’ The protesters took issue with several ministers of the government claiming that they had been at the forefront of setting up the association.  Citing the alleged atrocities committed by the Jewish state of Israel against Palestinians, the protesters further demanded that any agreement made over establishing such an association be withdrawn.
