Jaffna High Court Judge M. Ilancheliyan yesterday issued an order banning animal sacrifices at Hindu Kovils in Jaffna District.

The order was made following a petition filed by the All Ceylon Saiva Maha Council against the use of animals as sacrifice to the deities.

The Judge ordered senior police officers in the Province to arrest those who violate the order in the future and to take action against them. (Romesh Madushanka)

    Hope this will be an eye opener to Sinhalese Buddhists to also petition the courts to ban the parading of animals (elephants) at Perehara's.

    What's the difference between animal sacrifices for religious purposes and slaughtering animals for human consumption?

    commonman Wednesday, 25 October 2017 03:22 PM

    different is you are killing the animals in the name of the religion which wanted to be kind to all the being.

    Nadeesha Wednesday, 25 October 2017 02:54 PM

    Hinduism is against killing of any creature. How can one justify sacrifices at the temple premises? . He is a great order by a great judge.
