The General Secretary of Ceylon Thowheed Jama’ath (CTJ) Abdul Razik today claimed that Terrorism Investigations Division (TID) was alerted in 2016 about some of the propaganda activities of Zahran Hashim.
He told the Parliament Select Committee (PSC) on the Easter Sunday attacks that Zahran Hashim had been promoting jihad using Facebook.
Razik says he handed over the video of speeches made by Zahran Hashim to the TID.
“We were concerned that he may implement jihad in the country so we alerted the authorities,” Razik said.
Abdul Razik also insisted that his organisation was not involved in terrorism but only promoted the true teachings of Islam.
