Good News From Jayam April 15, 2022 Pls Scroll Down 35 items

Dear Sri Lankans living in the West Coast States in USA

 Ministry Foreign Affairs in Sri Lanka by its circular No 60 /2022 / file No FA/OSL/2/1 has instructed all missions abroad to help in establishing a database of Sri Lankans living in their assigned territories.

  The government is of the opinion that having a centralized database will be of value in facilitating various official purposes such as providing emergency / consular  assistance, policy formulation, promoting engagement of overseas Sri Lankans in economic / development activities, etc

  

Having experienced the difficulties of not having a properly updated Database in providing services to you all during the recent Pandemic,we are sure that you will agree with us how difficult it would be without a current database in an extremely unlikely event similar to having to evacuate Sri Lankans from Russia and Ukraine. 

   We at the Consulate General requested all Sri Lankan Associations and Temples in the areas coming under the purview of the Consulate General at Los Angeles to help us in revising the database of Sri Lankans living in California by email dated November 3rd, 2021. We can not say that we are happy with the response we had from these institutions.

 We have also tried to gather information regarding the number of Sri Lankans living here from the census department to be advised that they don’t have a separate category as Sri Lankans apart from the main catogery of Asians. 

 We will be thankful to you for providing your details using the link given below

Please be good enough to pass on this link and motivate your colleagues and friends also to do the same and help us to serve you all better.

Although Sri Lanka’s Muslims form nearly 10% of the population of Sri Lanka, a comprehensive work detailing their main places of worship and recording their history, evolution and architecture has been a long-felt need. This lacuna is now filled with a well-illustrated coffee table book ‘Iconic Masjids of Ceylon’ authored by Asiff Hussein and published by the Ceylon Baithulmal Fund. The book covers 31 iconic mosques of Sri Lanka from what is supposed to be the oldest standing mosque in the country, Masjidul Abrar in Beruwala said to have been built in the year 920 but embellished over the years to the ultra-modern Jamiah Naleemiah Mosque that has been compared to a flying saucer.
