The Social & Recreational Committee of the Moors’ Islamic Cultural Home has been successful in the past in conducting the MJM Lafir Billiards & Snooker Tournament in memory of the late world billiard champion MJM Lafir.   Late M.J.M. Lafir immortalised in sports record books by winning the World Amateur Billiard Championship in 1973 and in the process establishing few records brought unprecedented reckoning to Sri Lanka. The fame and prestige he brought to his motherland was so overwhelming that all nations were magnanimous in their praise for him and the land that produced this amazing Cueist.

 This international tournament which has representation from clubs/societies/associations affiliated to the Billiards & Snooker Association of Sri Lanka with the participation of some of the top ranked players from India will be held from 25th March to 6th April 2013. Mayor of Colombo A. J. M. Muzammil will be the chief guest at the opening ceremony.

 The MICH Billiard Parlour at No. 115, Dematagoda Road, Colombo 9 has been the appropriate and magnificent venue for such a tournament with four fully equipped international standard billiard tables, air-conditioned parlour and seating accommodation for more than 150 spectators. An entry fee of Rs. 500.00 per participant is levied and entry forms are available with all affiliated clubs of the Billiards & Snooker Association of Sri Lanka and also could be obtained from the tournament organisers.   The snooker challenge trophy is donated by M.J.M. Azwer and the Ajward Hashim Challenge Trophy for billiards is donated by Zuraish Hashim
