[b]Colombo, 24 March, ( [/b]The 'step motherly' attitude meted out to the Muslim community is likely to continue even at next month's peace talks in Geneva with both the Government and the LTTE still not approving the participation of a separate Muslim delegation.

The Muslim community has been the silent sufferer during the two decade long ethnic conflict owing to the continuous harassment meted out to them by the Tigers by way of murder, abduction, eviction and extortion.

Commenting on the possibility of a separate Muslim delegation partaking at the forthcoming peace talks, Mr. Javid Yusuf, Director general of the Muslim peace Secretariat noted that, "there doesn't seem to be a possibility of such a delegation participating during April talks at this juncture."
