Monks Speak Against Animal Sacrifices

Sep 16, 2011 8:55:21 PM - thesundayleader.lk

The National Bhikku Front (NBF) has called for amendments to the country’s legal system in order to stop animal sacrifices as religious rituals.

Advisor of the NBF Ven. Hedigalle Wimalasara Thera has said amending the legal system to overcome the loopholes enabling animal sacrifices is the answer to the problem instead of creating scenes.

He has said the legislation that was presented to parliament banning animal sacrifices has not yet been passed.

Animal sacrifices could currently be stopped only through a court order or a gazette notification.

The NBF has said it has planned several measures to stop animal sacrifices for religious rituals.
