A protest against the slaughter of animals for religious rites was organized by the Multi-Religious Alliance for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in front of the Colombo Municipal Council this morning.

I am amazed that animal sacrifice is allowed in our country. Buddhism preached ahimsa to all living beings.

What about the thousands of insects that are killed during plant cultivation? What about their lives? Don't they deserve to live as well?
If Sri Lanka bans animal slaughter for once and for all, then I'm ready to become a vegetarian as well.

But who is consuming all the meat that is slaughtered on a daily basis in this country ?

stop slaughter of all animals. Cows, pigs, goat, chicken, turkey, fish, lobsters, prawn. Can you do it? Of course not, when you have seperate ministries for fishery and animal husbandry. This is a joke by cheap publicity seekers and time wasters
