Animal Sacrifice Banned In Jaffna: Jaffna High Court Intervenes To Prevent Kovil Killings

The Jaffna High Court yesterday imposed a ban on animal sacrifice in kovils in the Jaffna peninsula.

The verdict, by Jaffna High Court Judge M. Illancheliyan, brings to a close a prolonged case filed against the Narasimma Kovil in Kavunawatte.

High Court Judge M. Illancheliyan, in his verdict, said the killing of animals for sacrifice was a primitive and barbaric ritual that ought to be stopped.

He informed the Police that any individual or group found violating this order should be arrested and produced before court.
