Upananda Brahmachari | HENB | Haridwar | Sept 9, 2020:: After returning to power of Prime Minister of Sri Lanka for the fourth time at a Buddhist temple on the outskirts of Colombo on August 9, 2020; Mahinda Rajapaksa took a vow to maintain peace and compassion to all according to Buddhist philosophy.
Now, Rajapaksa agreed to ban cow & cattle slaughter in Sri Lanka to stop animal cruelty for curbing the desperate move of Muslims to kill cow and cattle rampantly in the holy land of Sri Lanka. The Hindus and Buddhists of the island have been demanding the ban to protect the cow progeny and to upheld the Hindu and Buddhist tradition in Sri Lanka.
On Tuesday, the Parliamentary Group of the ruling party, the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) approved a proposal to ban cattle slaughter in Sri Lanka.
Cabinet Spokesman Keheliya Rambukwella told the press that at the SLPP Parliamentary Group meeting Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa had said he hopes to ban cattle slaughter.
The Minister further said that all SLPP MPs who attended the meeting had commended the Prime Minister on the proposal.
“No official proposal was submitted by the Prime Minister, but he expects to put forth the proposal soon,” he said.
Minister Rambukwella further said the Prime Minister will decide when and how to formally submit the proposal to the cabinet to ban cattle slaughter.
If the proposal is approved by the cabinet and enforced the Government will look to import meat anyway.
Accordingly, Sri Lanka may formally ban cow slaughter very soon. Now its an added point that the ruling Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP), which won a two-thirds majority in the parliamentary elections last month, has decided to ban slaughtering of cows across the island nation. And nobody to oppose the ban right now following a Buddha Shasan there.
In Buddhist-majority Sri Lanka, about 95% people are meat-eaters. But the 99% of majority Hindus and Buddhists do not eat beef.
The influential Buddhist monks, mostly with Rajapaksa-led SLPP, have been pressurizing successive governments to ban cow slaughter for religious grounds.
But unfortunately, Cow/cattle slaughter has not been banned in India under any union law enforcement, even in PM Narendra Modi’s 2nd regime, though Indian Constitution gives direction to prohibit cow slaughter under Article 48+ very clearly.
It is good to hear that Cattle slaughter is going to be banned in Sri Lanka. But, at the same time, it is frustrating that India is yet to promulgate any law to ban it.
