Jaffna animal sacrifice ban ruling challenged Featured

Two petitions were filed yesterday (12) against the Jaffna high court judge Manickawasagar Ilancheliyan’s ruling to ban animal sacrifices in the peninsula.

The boards of trustees of two Kovils in Jaffna have filed the petitions, citing the attorney general and the judge Ilancheliyan as the respondents.

The petitioners claim the suspension of the religious tradition of animal sacrifice that existed for many years has adversely affected the mentality of the devotees.
