If we were not capable enough to identify the hands behind the attempts of setting unstable this country, aftermath of the Easter Sunday attack, there would be more space for them to launch more attacks in the future, says the Minister Rauf Hakeem.
He expressed this comments in a media conference with the Muslim organisations called to explain the situation in which the false information is being spread out against the Muslims.
In this media conference, he accused that the thousands of mosques were searched and only found weapons in three of them but mega propaganda sounds raised against them.This could eventually help to the extremists. Even though the investigations are very essential to continue, the unwanted propaganda about the investigations would jeopardize the security measures.
As a results of searching around the country, some weapons have been found then they are displayed by the media as terrorists weapons but it is very clear that those weapons were held by the Muslim people for their self defense. If this type of search operations were to be carried out aiming to the other ethnic groups, there would be more weapons to be found. Then the minister explained that no any ethnic group should be oppressed by this sort of search operations in a situation like this.
