SRI LANKA: Govt to ban Hindu animal sacrifice

SRI LANKA Govt to ban Hindu animal sacrifice

Sri Lanka’s government has agreed to ban the ritual sacrifice of animals and birds at Hindu temples on the island.
A government spokesman said the move was proposed by the Hindu Religious Affairs ministry, and said most moderate Hindu groups support it.
Some Hindus sacrifice goats, buffalo calves and chickens at temples as an offering to their deities.
But the practice has attracted years of protests in Buddhist-majority Sri Lanka, where critics call it inhumane.
