Sri Lanka Muslim ministers resign en masse over Easter bombings
[AlAhram] Sri Lanka's Moslem ministers resigned en masse Monday over widespread hate attacks against their community in the wake of the Easter Sunday bombings that hit the majority Buddhist nation.
The resignation of nine government politicians, several of them cabinet ministers, came after a Buddhist monk politician supporting President Maithripala Sirisena demanded the sacking of three top Moslem politicians.
Demonstrations by several thousand people gripped the central pilgrim city of Kandy as monk Athuraliye Ratana insisted governors of two provinces and a cabinet minister be sacked over their alleged involvement with jihadists responsible for the bombings.
