Bodu Bala Sena rejects ACJU proposal

Rejecting the proposal made by All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama (ACJU) to hand over the Halal certification process to the Government, the Bodu Bala Sena said it did not prove a solution and called complete eradication of the Halal certification from the country.

Speaking at a news conference today Chief Secretary to the Bodu Bala Sena Galagodaatte Gnanasara Thera said taking over the process is not an option because it results in separation between the communities.

“If the government took over the process and continued the certification, it would create further trouble. According to the standard operation procedure for Halal Certification it is not practical to produce Halal and non-halal food in one factory,” the Thera said.

Speaking further the monk opined regarding why it won’t work in practice.

“The entire production should be a Halal affiliated one. Employees can’t interact in between the Halal and non-Halal sections. Production, storage and transportation of Halal and non-Halal products in one factory is prohibited. According to the Islamic law, production of both in the same factory is unacceptable process,” he said.

The outspoken monk further said that since Islam is not the state religion, laws governing Muslims should not be applied to the country.

“Sri Lankan Standards Institution (SLS) only gives a certification based on the chemical compounds of a product. But Halal is based on Islamic laws. Islam is yet not the state religion. Therefore their laws do not apply to ours. In such a situation we can’t allow the government to takeover the certification process,” he added. (Olindhi Jayasundere and Lahiru Pothmulla)

    Being a Buddhist I eat meat and so do my fellow friends.


    Presently most of the our monks also consume meat
    discreetly . They buy through some one from the
    Butcher. This is a utter mockery .

    Get your facts right BBS!!The procedure is not as complicated as this...and first please do go and get a proper understanding of how 'permissable' and 'non-permissable' food is classified.
    And there are several several other issues troubling our Motherland now.Instead of talking about them now,why are you all so concerned about creating rift between ethnic communities of Lanka??!!
    Saddest part,there are few fellow Sri Lankans(mostly youth) who are being carried away by their campaigning,this is utterly depressing.

    For the purpose of econmic gains halal should be certified for export, as for the local muslim population ,halal products should have a space in supermarkets for halal goods only.
