    all forms of religious / ethnic extremism should be treated as buds of terrorism.

    Tamilian Thamizan Thursday, 28 February 2013 10:49 AM

    Then for God sake do something for the religious tensions... Stop taking political gains on this.

    ANTON Thursday, 28 February 2013 10:49 AM

    As usual, Government never takes responsibility for any matter.

    Ravi Thursday, 28 February 2013 10:57 AM

    Did he say why the government cannot take? I mean, did he provide meaningful explanation to the request from ACJU?

    Aney Machang Thursday, 28 February 2013 10:57 AM

    Will the Minister also issue a statement with regards to the call of BBS

    Ishan Thursday, 28 February 2013 10:59 AM

    Government cannot take over is fine, but cannot give a solution for this Halal issue?

    Roshan Friday, 01 March 2013 04:51 AM

    brother respect other religion believes

    Halalfan Friday, 01 March 2013 03:59 PM

    I love Halal Pork!

    gihan Thursday, 28 February 2013 11:02 AM

    Everything has been planned. And now in actions.

    Justice Seeker Thursday, 28 February 2013 11:04 AM

    Let it be with holder if government denies.

    Ramzeel Thursday, 28 February 2013 11:08 AM

    roshan Thursday, 28 February 2013 11:04 AM

    You can't have your cake and eat it

    habeeb Ur Rahuman Thursday, 28 February 2013 11:07 AM

    just withdraw halal certificate and let us live in peace. even without halal certification, we can consume halal food if sacrifies unwated luxury needs... you can have home made with natural ingredians.

    Dinithi Thursday, 28 February 2013 11:12 AM

    Ulama!!

    Sanaboy Thursday, 28 February 2013 11:09 AM

    If government not ready to take over responsibilities, let ACJU to continue the process.

    Mohamed Thursday, 28 February 2013 11:11 AM

    tjeyar Friday, 01 March 2013 12:00 AM

    I think Minister Rizad Badudeen can take over it like he took over innocent Tamil people's land . via DM Android App

    ANTON Thursday, 28 February 2013 11:22 AM

    Why don't you hand it over to M. Silva.

    xlntgson Friday, 01 March 2013 05:28 AM

    The compromise is lost if govt denounces its responsibility, the pressure would be on home grown chicken and it may skyrocket the price!

    Jazz Thursday, 28 February 2013 11:24 AM

    Keheliya, don't tell us what you cannot do. There is an issue, the govt. has got involved and so it's the govt.'s responsibility to find a solution.

    Samantha Thursday, 28 February 2013 11:25 AM

    This issue can't be overlooked. The opposition has to play a big role, educating the government the repercussions we Sri Lankans will have to face, if this issue is ignored.

    ajj Thursday, 28 February 2013 11:26 AM

    Good. Batter stop this

    FZ Thursday, 28 February 2013 11:24 AM

    So what? ACJU should continue the same way how they did for so many years?

    Governement Finish Thursday, 28 February 2013 04:05 PM

    Government is going to loose miniority votes. we can see these in upcoming election. where is Rauf hakeem, Ala fawzie, Moulana, Azwar and other muslim ministers? Are they sleeping on this

    thila Thursday, 28 February 2013 04:08 PM

    Good. Government should not get involved in any religious matters !!!

    Rohana Casturi Friday, 01 March 2013 01:59 AM

    Why not instruct S.L.T.B. to issue Halal Bus Tickets ?

    Mohamed Zahran Thursday, 28 February 2013 11:29 AM

    Outsource it to a recognised , foreign Halal certification authority
    M. Zahran

    Janaka Friday, 01 March 2013 02:08 AM

    Ann Friday, 01 March 2013 06:25 AM

    It's to make sure that no ingredient containing things like pork residue is used in the cake

    If you don't get ready for a solution, then get ready for another civil war. Simple as that.

    lovesri Thursday, 28 February 2013 12:51 PM

    expect loss for many companies as export will drop. the results will be more unemployment and send our sisters to barbarian countries

    Selva Thursday, 28 February 2013 12:52 PM

    Why can't all Srilankan live in peace side by side and respect all communities believes, regardless of minority/majority. We feel like living in Stone Age.

    TocaBoka Saturday, 02 March 2013 08:30 AM

    Yes, that too is halal. Ijyet. Mahinda yanaya and Mihin yanaya will run on water? The Kehel Kumbukwella is a string puppet in the hands of Manda Rajput.
