Muslims protest Sri Lankan army occupation of land in Vavuniya

Muslims in Vavuniya protested on Friday for the release of their lands which are still occupied by the Sri Lankan army.

Owners of land in Ramayankulam and Cheddikulam protested outside the mosque in Andiya Puliyankulam after lunchtime prayers on Friday.

Protestors accused the army of cultivating and profiting off their illegally occupied land.

They also slammed the Sri Lankan president for falsely promising that all military-held civilian lands would be released by December 31, 2018.
