Thousands protest Musali land-grab gazette

Mannar locals have been protesting against a gazette notification declaring private land including the area of Musali as nature reserve.

Muslim and Tamil agriculture workers from Musali and surrounding villages would be affected by the land-grab.

Residents of Marichchukatti, a Muslim village have been protesting calling for the repeal of the gazette notification.

Last week, a protest march in support of the villagers was organised by community leaders at Marichchukatti mosque and attended by thousands.
