UNP Condemns Animal Sacrifices

Aug 27, 2010 11:08:21 AM - thesundayleader.lk

The UNP today (27) urged the government to consider introducing laws prohibiting the killing of animals at Hindu and Buddhist religious sites.

UNP National List parliamentarian M. Swaminathan while expressing displeasure over the sacrifice of animals for a religious ritual at the Munneswaram Kali Kovil on August 25 told the media today that Hinduism has not stated that one should sacrifice animals as a religious ritual.

Swaminathan also observed that even the Indian Central Government has made it illegal to kill animals for religious purposes.
