Rathana Thero wants three Muslim politicians removed
Parliamentarian Athuraliye Rathana Thero is saying he will fast unto death if several powerful Muslim politicians are not removed from their positions.
The Thero is fasting in front of the Sri Dalada Maligawa temple in Kandy and made his announcement to the Media earlier today.
Rathana has set his sights on Minister of Industry and Commerce Rishad Bathiudeen, Eastern Province Governor M.L.A.M. Hizbullah and Western Province Governor Azath Sally.
In a video released on his official Facebook page, Rathana Thero had said that the hunger strike will continue until the minister and two governors are removed from their posts.
On Tuesday (28) Rathana Thero had given 24 hours for the President to remove these politicians from their posts, but since, the said time period had expired he had decided to commence a fast unto death.
