President orders immediate construction of Ashraf Memorial Museum in Kalmunai

May 16, Colombo (LNW): President Ranil Wickremesinghe has mandated the immediate construction of the “Ashraf Memorial Museum” in Kalmunai, in honour of the late M.H.M. Ashraf, founder of the Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) and former Minister.

M.H.M. Ashraf, a distinguished politician celebrated for his dedicated service to the Muslim community, will be memorialised through this museum.

This initiative arises from a request made by H.M.M. Haris, Digamadulla District Member of Parliament, alongside the local Muslim community, marking the 24th anniversary of Mr. Ashraf’s death.

The President has allocated Rs. 25 million for the project and has instructed officials to begin construction without delay, the President’s Media Division (PMD) said.

Ashraf, remembered as an eloquent lawyer and legislator, significantly contributed to the welfare of the Muslim population in the Eastern Province.

He garnered respect across various ethnic communities, including Sinhala, Tamil, and Muslim groups in the country.
