Continuing his efforts to enhance dialogue with Heads of Mission of Islamic countries concurrently accredited to Sri Lanka from New Delhi, High Commissioner of Sri Lanka to India Milinda Moragoda today (01) presented copies of the Sinhala translation of the Holy Quran to the Ambassador of Morocco to India Mohamed Maliki.

The impressive Sinhala translation of the Holy Quran, published by the All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama (ACJU) of Sri Lanka, was presented to the Moroccan Ambassador at the High Commission of Sri Lanka. 

Ambassador Maliki highly appreciated this gesture of goodwill and stated that a copy of the Sinhala translation will be sent to Morocco to be kept in the Quran collection of the University of Al-Qarawiyyin in Fez, one of the leading spiritual and educational centres of the Islamic Golden Age and the oldest continuously operating, degree-granting university in the world.
