[b]Colombo, 10 January, ( [/b]The Muslim Council of Sri Lanka (MCSL) has requested President Mahinda Rajapakse to immediately intervene and settle the ongoing crisis at the Aalankuda Muslim Maha Vidyalaya in Puttalam, Kalpitiya.

In a letter to Mr. Rajapakse, the Muslim Council President N.M. Ameen has pointed out that even though 74 teachers are necessary for this school which has 1597 students and 42 class rooms, only 24 teachers are teaching at present.

This situation has led to even parents not sending their children to this school since September last year due to the teachers' shortage.

Most of the families of these students were victims of the LTTE's ethnic cleansing, where some 75,000 Muslim families were driven out of the North within a 24 hour period.
