I have advised that if any unfavorable incident takes place in any part of the country, to contact our Ministry officials immediately as we will take necessary action We had a meeting with the IGP N.K Ilangakone and the senior officials of the Police Department to solve the problems, if any issues come up, he said

Deputy Minister of Technology and Research Faiszer Musthapha and the representatives of the All Ceylon Jammiyyathul Ulama jointly requested all Muslims to avoid the Ulhiyya (sacrifice of animals) on Monday (29), due to the Full Moon Poya Day.

 The Deputy Minister also insisted at the media briefing held at the Ministry to respect the rights of all the other religions of this country during the Hajj festival period.

    Thank you for bringing this up.

    HAJ animal slaughter terrorism will happen on a Poya day. This is UNACCEPTABLE.

    Have same enthusiasm to BAN POLYGAMY which is disgusting and immoral.

    This is a good sign and a good start.

    Animal sacrifice is unacceptable under any religion and incompatible with modern society.

    So it is good if Muslims can replace it with a more humane practice that doesn’t involve killing. There are Sufi sects that do not consume meat. If according to the tradition Abraham’s son was spared from sacrifice why not spare the life of an animal meant to be slaughtered for meat?
