Former Minister Dr. Mervyn Silva, who claimed that he is following the non-violence path adopted by Anagarika Dharmapala, today urged the government to bring in laws to ban cattle slaughter.

Taking part in a signature campaign organised by a youth organization in Matara against cattle slaughter, he requested new parliamentarians to create policies that prevent animal slaughter.

The signature campaign was commenced near the Anagarika Dharmapala statue opposite the Matara Bodhiya this morning.    

Mervyn Silva was in the spotlight sometime ago when he seized the animals that had been brought for the annual sacrifice ritual of the Bhadra Kali Amman Kovil in Munneswaram premises in Chilaw. (Krishan Jeewaka Jayaruk)

    Hi Anton,It is fair for the good Doctor to get votes from his own kind.

    gayani Wednesday, 28 October 2015 02:11 PM

    Dr. note, your request to ban the slaughtering of cattle will not definitely absolve you from the sins committed so far.

    Veda-mama Wednesday, 28 October 2015 02:24 PM

    Excellent!! But even the cattle will not vote for him. He may have to approach the Donkeys. But..Alas!!! Still doubtful.

    Nirosh Monday, 02 November 2015 09:24 AM
