This mosque is situated behind the Navy camp . Besides , the street lamps had been extinguished at the time of the attack.
Though there are no Sinhala Buddhists in this area , it is the view of the residents some third party had done this to fish in troubled waters. Trincomalee police are conducting investigations .
On the 2nd , the Muslim leaders invited the High Commissioners of Australia and Canada to the ancient Dewatagaha mosque in Colombo to enlighten them on the recent attacks targeting Muslim places of worship and business places. It is significant to note this attack was launched the very day after this meeting, and therefore the Muslim leaders are most concerned.
