  1. “THE MUSLIM VOICE” is fully with Gotabaya Rajapaksa (THE PEOPLES CHOICE) in his political journey to be the next President of Sri Lanka. The Muslims have begun to act on their own politically and have started to support Gotabaya, Insha Allah. “THE MUSLIM VOICE” will do all it is possible within it’s ability to make Gotabaya’s victory a success.
    The Muslim Youth and the young professionals of the community have begun to use “SOCIAL MEDIA” to challenge these scroundels. In the next elections, surely the Muslims are contemplating to vote the “Joint Opposition” to power. THEY WILL VOTE GOTABAYA RAJAPAKSA TO BECOME THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF SRI LANKA BECAUSE THEY CAN TRUST HIM TO SOLVE THE MUSLIM FACTOR ISSUES TOO, Insha Allah.

What political experience Gota got to be the president of Srilanka we need a person with lot of political experience and maturity to be our next president can Gota cope up with any situations no he has a bad temper and he handles situations and problems in a ruthless manner we don’t want to go back to a same old situations and bad experiences we had during last regime for MR during the last presidential election he address MS as his office boy same applies to Gota as well now when he was contesting SF he questioned about SF experience as a politicians .
    MR has no choice he has only Gota its a terrible mistake family party next in line Namal

  3. Gotabahaya, will keep all Muslim fanatics in “their place”. I think that is one thing the citizens of the country can be absolutely certain of .
