  1. I am deeply moved to see ven.Bowatte Indrarathane thero’s sacrifice as a great human voice with empathy towards innocent animals.

    As a fact, Cattle slaughter is taking place with the approval and encouragement of the Government of Sri Lanka.
    I hold President of Sri Lanka, responsible to the said fact.

    As people of the country (owner), I have knowledge (in law) and sovereign power to completely stop Government involvement in animal slaughter, by superseding the constitution of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka. To counter all petty legal arguments of government officials is very simple.

    I mean no harm to the political stability in my country and do not challenge eating rights of people.

    If you condemn animal slaughter in Sri Lanka, I wish to hear your thoughts as well.
