Luckyly not "HALAL" or else this too would be band!
Calistus Jayatilleke Tuesday, 09 April 2013 06:52 AM
Such things are not going to stop people from drinking during the festivities. There is a thing called advance buying and stocking which can be done during the remaining couple of days.

oppertunity for illegal liquor traders to earn for the whole year.

This is simply idiotic and baseless. May be because people drink a lot during this period and start trouble in the families and society. But those who want it will buy it earlier or buy at black-market rates on that day. So only benefits are for the black-marketeers. If liquor sale or consumption is bad for a particular day including poya day, then it should be bad for all days. So please do not impose laughable regulations.
