No Halal within Sri Lanka

 

halal)ISLAMIC clerics have withdrawal a halal labelling system for food in Sri Lanka “in the interests of peace” after protests from Buddhist hardliners on the Indian Ocean island.

The All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama (ACJU), Sri Lanka’s main body of Islamic clergy, said on Monday the halal certificate issued by them would be used only for products that are exported to Islamic countries.

“We are giving up what is important to us. We are making a sacrifice in the interest of peace and harmony,” ACJU president Mufti Rizwe said, adding they were keen to avoid any escalation of religious tensions.
