Sri Lanka is an island nation south of India in the Indian Ocean.

As of the 2011 census, Muslims make up around 10 percent of the country’s Buddhist-majority country.

The 17th day of the month of Rabi al-Awwal in the lunar Hijri calendar, which falls on December 6 this year, is believed by Shia Muslims to mark the birth anniversary of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH), while Sunni Muslims regard the 12th day of the month as the birthday of the last prophet.

The interval between the two dates is celebrated every year as the Islamic Unity Week.

Imam Khomeini (RA) declared the occasion as the Islamic Unity Week back in the 1980s.
