Anunayake Theras commend moves to end cattle slaughter

The Malwathu and Asgiriya Anunayake Theras have commanded a proposal mooted by Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa to halt the slaughter of cattle in the country entirely, adding that this decision should be supported by all regardless of their political differences.

The Anunayake Theras said that despite calls from a number of parties, including the Maha Sangha to stop the slaughter of cattle in the country, no action had been taken in the recent past.

The Anunayake Thera of the Malwathu Chapter Ven. Dimbul Kumbure Wimaladhamma and the Anunayake Thera of the Asgiriya Chapter Ven. Wandaruwe Upali Thera said that the rulers should act in a manner in accordance with the Buddhist philosophy and teachings and that non-violence should prevail.

The Anunayake Thera said that Buddhist teachings are based on non-violence and that the lives of every living being including those of animals should be respected.

Malwathu Anunayake Ven. Dimbul Kumbure Wimaladhamma said that President Gotabaya Rajapaksa and Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa are working to bring everyone under one law which the country appreciates.
