    Illegal animal slaughter banned. what is "illegal" and what is "banned". So earlier it was illegal but not banned. What a country, what a law. It requires a court order to ban what is illegal...

    We should not sacrifice the hard-earned peace because few extremist groups.
    If so we should ban all animal slaughter in Srilanka (Including Cattle,Goat,Pig, Fish)
