SRI LANKA: Buddhists are mad as Hell and demanding an end to Islamic Halal desecration of their food supply
Majority Buddhist population (Muslims 10%) of Sri Lanka demand end to all halal (Islamic-approved) products. After a Government Minister condemned the Halal Certification racket on Feb. 14th, the Sinhalese Buddhist group has called for the abolition of the Muslim halal system of certifying foods and other goods, as well as a ban on any new mosques.
BOYCOTT HALAL (h/t Charles daHammer) Sri Lanka, formerly Ceylon, is a naturally beautiful island off the Southern tip of India. Until May 2009, when the government forces seized the last area controlled by Tamil Tiger rebels, the people had experienced a long and bitter civil war for more than 25 years which arose out of ethnic tensions between the majority Sinhalese and the Tamil minority. The violence killed more than 70,000 people, damaged the economy and harmed tourism in one of South Asia’s potentially most prosperous societies.
