A request made by the Chilaw police for a court order banning the slaughter of animals at the Chilaw Munneswaran Sri Badrakali Kovil was rejected by the Chilaw District Judge and Magistrate Jagath A.Kahandagama.
 
The Magistrate said imposing a ban as requested by the police was not within the jurisdiction of that court.
 
Police earlier filed a motion seeking a court order for a ban on animal slaughter in response to a complaint made by General Secretary of the Thunhela Jathika Vyaparaya  Ven. Omare Kassapa Thera.

    Why cant this Jathika Vyaparaya concentrate their efforts to prevent rape of minors and women by the government politicians and fight for death sentence for such offenders, instead of arousing communal feeling with this sort of campaigns.

    not a good idea. not a hindu tradition. creation of a section of society who beleive kill an innocent animal to benefit some imaginary or real human in their thoughts

    Sangaralingham Wednesday, 12 September 2012 07:31 PM

    court is not guardian of animals. society should be and in the name of god no animals should be sacrificed

    Soma Thero was no super Human and neither is SL a Buddhist country. The majority of SL people are Buddhist. There is a difference in that and I hope you understand that, and that the consitutuion of SL guarantees religious freeodm to all religions.

    Are you going to close all slaughter houses ?

    Gam Pappa Tuesday, 11 September 2012 04:59 PM

    You mean animals like Mervyn and Malaka?

    A country has no religion and should not have a religion. Just because extremist countries do some thing it doesn't mean it is right and logical. Religion of an individual citizen is purely a personal thing, and the state should safeguard the rights of different believes to practice their religion.

    Sri Lanka being such a religious country we should not kill any animals at all.

    Read this and do not try to twist the meaning Rig Veda verse 10.86.14, in which Indra says, "They cook for me 15 plus 20 oxen," and verse 8.43.11, which describes Agni as one whose food is the ox and the barren cow.

    What are more important people or goats? politicians support harbour and protect man-killers, to cover up, they protest against animal killers. All bloody cocks, time servers!

    Subbiah Tuesday, 11 September 2012 12:50 PM

    Will anyone show in which Hindu scripture animal sacrifice in temples is mentioned?

    Achari Tuesday, 11 September 2012 10:07 AM

    All people should have the right to practice their religion as far as they don't sacrifice humans.

    Kallathoni Lankan Tuesday, 11 September 2012 12:06 PM

    Hat off to the judge. This is hinu's tradition. Let them get on with it.

    Sim Tuesday, 11 September 2012 12:07 PM

    According to the Constitution all are allowed to practice their religion as long as it's not against the law of the country.
