Fashion-Bug-300x225

A hate campaign against Muslims and Muslim owned establishments in Sri Lanka continued today with a mob attacking a Fashion Bug warehouse at Pepiliyana.

The police said that at least 20 men had initially carried out the attack damaging the building and property including a vehicle.

The group then grew into a large mob and the police were unable to control them as the attack continued for several hours with stones and other objects being used.

Army, police Special Task Force members and riot police were later deployed to the area to bring the situation under control.

Some journalists covering the incident were also attacked by the mob.

The attack came just days after the media unit of the Bodu Bala Sena had sent out an SMS to local journalists urging them to gather support against Muslim owned outlets in Sri Lanka.

The SMS called on the general public to purchase items for the upcoming Sinhala and Tamil New Year from non-Muslim stores.
