Court bans animal sacrifice in Koils in Jaffna peninsula


Jaffna High Court Judge M.Illancheliyan has ordered a ban on animal sacrifice in Hindu temples in the Jaffna peninsula. 

He made the order having heard a plea by the Hindu Maha Sabah that the animal sacrifice be banned in temples in the Jaffna peninsula. The petition was supported by Counsel Manivannan.

High Court Judge Ilancheliyan in his order stated that the Court has jurisdiction to hear the case. That local government bodies have granted permission for animal sacrifice in temples is an abuse of power by such bodies.

The order further stated no local bodies, pradesa sabhas etc shall grant permission for animal sacrifice.
