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.


The Buddhist majority in the country are peace-loving and fair-minded, but they abhor the halal ritual slaughter which Muslims insist is necessary to produce halal meat – this outdated 7th Century seems unnecessarily cruel to livestock in 21st Century Sri Lanka, but muslims insist that the Muslim way of slaughter is the best and the animals get no feeling when the jugular vein of the neck is cut and the blood flows from the body… they say that immediately after the cut , the whole body of the animal will get numb and it will not feel any pain.


Muslims are against stunning the animal, because they say that the blood will still be there and the animal will suffer.  However a  four year Dialrel Study carried  out by Veterinary Scientists from many countries of Europe found the opposite is true and they concluded that halal ritual slaughter causes unnecessary suffering. The publication of that Scientific Paper is here:


Buddhist monk Kirama Wimala Jothi has urged Sri Lanka’s non-Muslim majority to boycott any product with the halal label and asked the government to outlaw Islamic clerics issuing such certification.

A Facebook Group called  SAY NO TO HALAL in SRI LANKA has also been set up which has a growing following here:


Then on 14th February, Sri Lanka Minister of Research and Technology Patali Champika Ranawaka, requested that all halal food producers remove the halal certificate. He warned that his Party, Sinhala Buddhist Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) would take action unless the producers of halal heed their demand.

Muslims say that from their perspective there’s nothing wrong if Christians or Buddhist will eat halal foods. It’s just a matter of choice if you like it or not;  but if you outlaw the selling of halal products, then that’s another matter. You are depriving the people of their freedom to choose. Conversely, the halal certification process is now seen as a violation of the Rights of the Majority who want traditional foods and food services.


Yesterday thousands of Sinhalese supporters of the Buddhist majority attended a rally in a suburb of the capital, Colombo… Youth activists at the rally wore T-shirts denouncing the Muslim halal method of slaughtering animals to eat.

They reject halal products & services and the creeping Islamification of their country eg. a Mosque has been built in Dambulla, which is considered by many to be a sacred Buddhist area. The prime minister ordered the mosque’s relocation on Sunday, following an attack on the mosque on Friday by hardline Buddhists, including monks and all this amid a rising  religious tension in the country. The Buddhist Sinhalese make up three-quarters of Sri Lanka’s 20 million population.


Muslims make up less than 10% of the population , but the majority are seeing a rise in halal certified products. This unwanted over-production of halal products & services is considered by the  majority to be threatening their culture and their valued traditions.

There is a gradual increase in halal restaurants and Markets and we have even found that Muslims have started to export Halal Fish to the UK from a halal supplier called Ceylon Fisheries Limited via their fully operational processing plant at Tudella, Ja-Ela, Negombo, Sri Lanka.  


The increasing halal trade within Sri Lanka is completely unacceptable to the majority, so Sinhalese leaders have now called for a boycott of halal meat and demanded shops clear their stocks by April, according to the AFP news agency reports.

Now the The leading Muslim religious leaders’ group, the All Ceylon Jamiyathul Ulama, has warned against violence threatened by striking Muslims – they have called for Muslims to fast instead. Muslims have now gone on strike in eastern Sri Lanka which have left schools, government offices, buses and the public market all shut after that decree from the main mosque.

The Muslim panderers of the BBC bash what they call the “racist” Buddhists and sympathize with Muslims in the video.


At least 50 Muslim shop owners have received death threats over the halal issue

  1. halal bread,halal sugar,halal tea bags,halal soup,whats this all about then,il tell you,ITS THE BIGGEST CON IN WORLD HISTORY, in non muslim countries muslims only have to say BISMALLAH over their food and its ok to consume,and this practice of halal slaughter should never be allowed in christian buddhist countries,i myself find it offensive and will NEVER EVER BUY HALAL

  2. These extremist muslims are trying to get approve and try to apply sharia law in sri lanka.. and they wearing this black gunny bag head to toe covering and only shows their eys in that peep holes.. you never know under that black garbage bag is a criminal men walking .. most of the muslms are smuggling drugs in to sri lanka.. and try to get affairs with Buddhist girls and marry them and converting to their baseless so call peaceful religion islam.. that religion has nothing but pure evil and pure hate.. muslims are lucky to live among Buddhists b’cos Buddhist are peaceful people and can tolerate, but there is a limit to every thing.. they take srilankan historical Buddhist lands and claiming that belongs to their stupid allah , cover with green and white paint , put acid on to old Brahmin scriptures , same time they buy land in sri lanka from people for extra money, and they breed more kids , and get government help to raise them and same time for majority people getting another treatment.. and Pakistan had send birth control injections , medical supplies to sri Lankan people.. how come Muslims can breed that we can’t have more kids.. this is a cunning way to them to catch up with the majority , then it’s like USA FDA approved , and under sri lanka it’s SLS approve products for anyone to eat.. now Sinhala , catholic , Christian, and hindus need to buy our own local products with halal sign on it.. they put halal sgin to even for the toilet seat.. just to make extra money.. all these happen under without notice .. all these extra money goes to jihadist training ,, there are people coming to sri lanka as a tourists from middle east to spread the extremist Muslims.. sri lanka was a Buddhist country in the first place , who ever invade the country in the past brought their religion.. but , Catholics, Christian , and Buddhists are same Sinhalese people , who ever want to practice their religion they have the freedom for it.. but Muslims came to sri lanka as merchants.. if like Afghanistan they blast the history , that big Buddha’s statue, so Afghanistan was Buddhist land., they wants every where should be Muslims.. they will not allow any Buddhists to build a temple in Saudi arab countries.. but when they go to other countries they want to have everything.. so if they wants to live among others like a normal respectful human beings.. do not try to force their crap to others.. b’cos other countries should be haram for them in the first place , they should practice where no Buddhists , Catholics Christians, any other religion exist

  3. It was also of interest about the agressive side effects of tortured animals. No doubt this also contributes to the brutal behaviour of young muslims. i had come to the concludion that inbreeding must have affected their gene pool and was the main contributor of their irrational and violent behaviour. Years ago I wondered if people’s behaviour was affected by eating large quantities of meat, especially beef.

  4. Thanks for the information about Kosher. I will pass that on so people can understand the difference. There is no way the poor beasts do not suffer having to bleed out before they die. I do not remember if you have used the Australian film shot in Indonesia slaughterhouses. It was so disgusting that I could only watch small parts of it. They thought the cruel, inhuman treatment of these gentle creatures was hilarious. It caused a public outcry and forced changes in the industry. But shipping livestock overseas to muslim countries should never have been allowed in the first place. People who treat animals with such contempt will also treat people with contempt. What is wrong with our governments, are they also being bought off with the mid east petro dollars?

  5. @Praveen Herath, “In Sri lanka they issue hala certificates to cement”. We dont mind banning hala. But do not spread lies. By this statement You are convincing the world how stupid sinhala buddhists in your country are. World is much more developed than you think. People are not deceived by this internet jokes

    • Oh yeah? shall we present all the facts for you to challenge and refute if you will, jaria? I’m a Sinhalese, and I’m a Buddhist from Sri Lanka, and although I’m not a big fan of the organization called Bodu Bala Sena, (who are at the front mile to get rid of this Islamic slavery, despite their harsh talks), I will not stand by as my country is ashamed by stupid liars like you. Halal has been nothing but an illegal tax put upon us by the Muslims. Why the HELL should WE pay extra for OUR products to be certified as HALAL? Especially when the money goes to build yet more freaking MOSQUES?

    • And oh, jaria, P.S. If you say that we are STUPID to let you have Halal in OUR country, not considering the fact that we gave you lands, we gave you girls to wed, we gave you money to trade, we gave you goods to sell, we gave you our lands to fertilize and prosper… well, then maybe it’s time we Buddhists re-thought about our generosity—sorry, stupidity, as you said—and put an end to this nonsense.

  6. In dact there buddhists have learned from hindu fundamentalists in india. The world has senn how fanatics demolished the babri mosque. There is nothing left for tem to learn

  7. Either Halal or any other century old cruel practice, there is one religion which does not want to relook at it – changing them is too much far. God bless them!

  8. They never respect their religent to how sinhala people will respect otheir religion to.uneducated ..good is wacthing us wait and see dont jump to mach

    • I could make a brief commentary on the above, though I PROBABLY shouldn’t….

      Oh, hell! The pull of the Dark Side is just too strong…

      “Head down, @$$ up, as some m—-f—a bounced in her…”

      *delete at will..*


  9. Dear BNI please don’t take “” as a reliable source because that site maintain by a Islam Fundamentalist called “Anver Manatunga” who has alleged appointed by the world Jihad to Criticize Buddhism & other minority religions in Sri Lanka like Christianity and Hindu also to lead general Muslims into terrorists by brain washing them.

  10. HALAL is a certificate which is analyze any ingredients cause harm to the consumers health, Like ISO, SLS. But all companies wants the certificate to standardize their products. Any foolish wish to consume contaminated or harming to health food?

    • In Sri Lanka so called All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama (Halal Sri Lanka) issuing Halal certificates to even Cement, Paint Brushes & Pain Killer Balms too don’t know whether Muslims eat them too. 😛

      If this continues they will issue Halal Certificates to even Dresses, Vehicles & Bathroom Fittings too. 😀

      • Please verify your facts as there has been enough lies already said, and next is killing of Muslims like in Myanmar…..pawns in the western countries great plan…..

    • Bullshit.

      ‘halal’ is a certificate which means that animals have been slaughtered in a horrifically cruel way, whilst grinning mohammedans watch and celebrate. And some disgusting imam with a filthy beard mutters foul spells over the carcass.

      That’s contaminated meat, and harmful to my physical and spiritual health.

      I’ll eat pork, and buy my meat from Morrisson’s, the **only** supermarket in the UK that doesn’t sell halal meat.

  11. First of i must say Buddhism & Sri Lankan Sinhalese Buddhists are very innocent religion & people. Majority Buddhists want living in harmony with the minority Muslims, Christians & Hindus. But how can we Buddhists tolerate the upcoming Islam fundamentalism? You may know Islam doesn’t tolerate other religion beliefs especially statue worshipers like Buddhists. Ex. Vandalism Bahamian statues in Afghanistan, Vandalism & Looting Buddhist temples in Bangladesh, Violence in Thailand etc.

    Sinhalese Buddhists are the people who protected Muslims lived in coastal area at the history from Portuguese & dutch invaders too by giving shelters & allowing their mosques in the countryside. Additionally Sinhalese Buddhists are the people who protected Muslims in the past war period from the LTTE terrorists too. But now Muslims try to invade the county by invading Buddhist villages, women (marring poor women then converting), businesses & religion places too by unfaithful manner. Halal is a another issue because Muslim mosques compel manufacturers via Muslim shop owners & consumers to buy Halal label by paying to them. All earned money through Halal system the Muslims clergies use to spread Islam & to purchase lands & business ownership from poor Buddhists.

    I feel so sorry about why BBC partially takes Muslim side by deliberately ignoring the issues of innocent Buddhists. You may know Islam consider idol worshiping as associating something to Allah so they are the people who alleged to destroy Virgin Mary statues on the news line. Buddhists are practiced to accept & honour other beliefs too.

    World must understand this issue properly unless if Sri Lankan Buddhists & Buddhists Monks silent today; tomorrow world will loose the only Sinhalese Buddhist country of her.

    • Next step like in Myanmar you can see Buddhist monks carrying swords killing Muslims…this is what the halal thing is about….genocide…..

  12. One day, I hope that the 6 billion people of the world will put a stop to the 1 Billion muslim savages and put a stop to all muslim chaos. sThe description of the process of hel hel meat must become a part of every government’s agenda because the western democracies are against cruelty to animals. There are humane rules for the preparation of animals for meat and we must demand that our governments meet those standards of humaneness.

  13. Ms BNI, in response to your response to RG above – I am reminded of these lines from “A Fat Man’s Prayer”

    “You are what you eat, said a wise old man,
    Oh Lord, if that’s true I’m a Garbage Can ~! ”

    Sadly, it seems like that is what the greedy groats want to make us – Garbage cans as they are, themselves !!

  14. well other gutsy people are from Burma, they slay these roaches day in and day out, no halal ban bs and other such non-sense just go straight for the kill.

  15. I deeply appreciate the Buddhists taking a stand for God and for the defenseless animals that God so LOVINGLY created! The Buddhists are showing RESPECT for God by caring about and seeking to PROTECT the animals God LOVINGLY created!

    God forbid that the lovely PEACEFUL culture of the Buddhists would ever be damaged or destroyed! Non-Muslims must never allow their culture and MERCIFUL Western civilization to be destroyed by Muslims! Barbarism and cruelty to animals must not be allowed in our countries!

  16. Even being the most peaceful religion around here, the Buddhists are yet the only ones who had enough of the gruesome Islamic way of life and are reacting to it. But don’t worry, the westerners will have the same reaction when they suffer a direct blow from this ideology. Isn’t reality a b*tch?

  17. This is a post that I made on FB a while ago regarding halal takeover of meat production in Britain, but it still is valid for this case, I think. Some parts are in caps, but what is said is relevant.
    Robert Gulliford, Son Of Robert William Brooks. This Following Report Mistakenly Does Not Reflect The Following. The UK Used To Produce The Finest And Highest Quality Beef In The World, It Was Then Pristine. Halal Slaughtering And Cutting Plants, Along With Halal Certification Have Been Allowed To Take Over. ZAKAT TAXES Are Extracted From All Who Partake Of Those Goods And Services Whether They Want Them Or Not. This Means That JEWS, MESSIANICS, BIBLE-BELIEVING CHRISTIANS, SIKHS, Who Are All Commanded Not To Partake Of Such Things That Are Offered (sacrificed, prayed over), In The Names Of Idols, allah Is An Idol (False God), Are Having To Defile Their Creator, Or Go A Long Way In Search Of Unsullied Meats And Goods And Services. They Are Likely To Be Paying More For This, Because Many Halal Certified Enterprizes Are Able To Take Advantage Through Claiming Charity Status And Undercut Non Halal Producers For Price. WHAT IS NEEDED IS A LABEL WHICH STATES THAT AN ITEM HAS BEEN PRAYED OVER, AND IN THE NAME OF……….AND THE NAME OF THE “GOD”. BENEATH THAT THERE OUGHT TO BE A DECLARATION SAYING YES OR NO, WHETHER IT HAS BEEN PASSED AS HALAL (ALLOWED), OR HARAM (NOT ALLOWED), AND, WITH THAT, THERE OUGHT TO BE CLEARLY MARKED THAT ZAKAT IS LEVIED ON PURCHASE, ALONG WITH A CLEAR STATEMENT OF WHETHER IT IS PRODUCED AND SUPPLIED BY PRODUCERS THAT HAVE CHARITY STATUS, ALONG WITH THE NAMES OF THOSE CHARITIES.
    Robert Gulliford.
    The most important thing that we need to know is, has it been prayed over? Meat, for example, can be prayed over, and yet not declared halal. that meat can then be sold to the kaffir as not halal. we are commanded not to touch it, but we have no way of knowing. An RS label might leave plenty of loopholes, and we will still be eating haram meat that has been cursed by prayers of a false god.

    • RG, the problem in the US is that the FDA does NOT require halal labeling on halal-slaughtered meat. WE ran into that problem with Butterball when it was revealed that ALL their birds are halal slaughtered. It wasn’t labeled on the birds but it was mentioned on their website. As soon as we started publicizing that Butterball was sharia compliant, they quickly scrubbed the halal certification information from their website. They are lying when they tell you their meat is not halal but since the FDA makes labeling voluntary, there’s no way to prove it now.

  18. Thanks BNI for this. Now its time the people in the UK, Australia, South Africa and mainland Europe follow suite against this illegal terror funding “tax” (extortion). In these countries there is hardly anything without this blemish. This is parasitism.

    The Jews (who live around the world) have their own Kosher system, but they have separate shops or counters for them. They bare the additional cost.

    To me this is a glimmer of hope in a far away country (Berlin Wall Deja Vu?). If we act we can save all humanity.

    • CD, the Kosher system is much different than halal. The animals never suffer.

      Kosher vs. Halal:

      Kosher – requires the animal be slaughtered quickly and humanely, strictly forbidding cruel slow methods like strangulation.
      Halal – requires the animal be bled out in agony while sick people who get off watching that kind of thing have a “festival.”

      Kosher – requires the blood be drained cleanly from the *carcass* of the humanely killed animal, removing toxins released from cells into the bloodstream at the moment of death from the meat.
      Halal – leaves the meat *filled* with toxins released at the moment of death because the blood is removed while the animal is dying and therefore is not present in sufficient quantities to remove those last toxins.

      Kosher – contains little to no cortisol or norepenepherine (two stress chemicals that are similar enough from mammal to mammal to cross species) because the animal to be killed is treated well before it is put down and is generally not frightened as it is put down (because in a truly kosher slaughter situation, animals cannot be slaughtered in a sequential fashion, as the waste of one could contaminate the next, so they are not exposed to the “scent of death” the way non-kosher culls are)
      Halal – animals watch other animals die during the blood letting festival, smelling their fear and raising their own stress. These stress chemicals “marinate” the meat in hormones known to raise levels of aggression and violence in nearly all mammal species (including human).

      Kosher – requires cooking the cleanly drained meat completely, cooking any remaining stress chemicals into oblivion.
      Halal – allows for a surprising range of cooking methods, including even some “tar tar” dishes (raw or nearly raw), allowing for the spread of disease and chemicals and hormones that were not removed by the idiotic slow bloodletting practice and half-measure cooking.

      Kosher: the spinal cord is sectioned thus cutting off pain to the brain. Therefore, no suffering or terror.
      Hallal: spinal cord left intact.

  19. Well they should.. if they care about their own culture and values. They should be strict about this islamic crap issues in the first place, otherwise it’s going to cause problems and polemic in the future (or it already has).

  20. Hmmm. Muslims getting a taste of their own medicine. The law of karma is at work here. As one sows that is what one shall reap.

    Hey, Muslims. How does it feel when you are a minority and you are discriminated against by a majority religion? How does your medicine taste? Does it taste bitter?

    In general, Buddhism is more tolerant and peaceful than Islam. How is it that Buddhists are becoming more hostile to outside religions? Maybe Muslims can answer that question. Their own intolerance has made people less tolerant of them.

    • Hi Steve,
      I am a Budhist from Sri Lanka and I am not 100% agree with Bodu Bala Sena. Their words are violent. but no human is hurt during this campaign So it is peaceful.
      I Agree with you Buddhism is more tolerrate , even this campaign is not according to Budha’s teaching .
      This is a result of Muslim Intolerance.
      Muslims started to build houses in holy land of Budhists in last decae and still going on because Arabic countries funded it. Muslims started to build mosques , in Holy land of budhists, These were marked as holy lands even before the birth of Mohomed. Muslims does not allow any tolerant they protest against Deepa Mehta making films in Sri Lanka. Once she stopped filming of Midnights Chidrens because of them. Because of them books/Films are banned is Sri Lanaka.
      So it is time to stop this bullshits. and let people live peacefully.
      But I think Bodu Bala Sena should be careful not to do the mistakes of Muslims. They should not forced others to follow their ideologies.

  21. Looks like the Buddhists have won – I told you they’re shite-kickers. The Muzzies are probably afraid that the Buddhists will go house to house and beat the living crap out of them – which they may well do. So, the Muslims are backing down in order to “keep the peace.”

    From the “No Halaal” FB page you linked to:

    “The All Island Jameeyathul Ulema Organization has decided to abandon issuing of Halal certificates. A member of that organization Maulavi Mohamed Irfan told the ‘Neth’ radio a shortwhile ago. He said that a media briefing to enlighten on this will be held in Colombo this afternoon. He said the All Island Jameeyathul Ulema Organization has taken this decision taking into consideration the confrontational situation being created in the society on this issue.”

    One victory, for now. The rest of the world can now follow suit – will other Buddhists globally side with their brethren or with Muslims? Probably the latter, since these other Buddhists are pussies and are properly terrorized.

    • Well-said. lol I am an Asian-American. I follow what most American’s values. However, I still keep some good traditional values but I do not impose ’em to Americans. We all can live peacefully together, just don’t state your value better than others. Religion should keep it privately as if your genital sexual organ; don’t show it to the public and don’t shove it to anybody throat, and only you could feel its orgasm individualy.

  22. The Sri Lankan Buddhists are among the most violent in the world. Yes, violence within Buddhism – Westerners can’t fathom it, because they are taught “Buddhism Lite.” The point is, of course, that they do not take any shite from Muslims, which is why Muslims are only 10% of the populace.

    So, I sincerely hope that the Sri Lankan Buddhist shite-kickers stick to their “guns,” so to speak, and keep these foul bastards at bay.

  23. They know what did happen in afeganistan centuries ago!!!!!!
    Who doesn’t remember the big budas be destroyed bu muslims in Afeganistan?????
    Who can be so stupid to believe that the muslim is a religion???

  24. Which supremacist is going to win? If you want a special product, you don’t impose it on those who don’t want it. Sounds reasonable to me.

    Islam is the master of the Trojan horse technique. A new mosque is a Trojan horse.

    Since 4/5 of the world isn’t Moslem, we just have to boycott all Moz products and they’ll be forced to join us.

  25. The buddhists must keep these radical Islamics down! In Thailand, hundreds of Buddhists have been brutally murdered by Islamics. BUT, Buddhists must not attack the few Christians who are there. The Christians are not forcing their way like Islamics. But also Christians have to understand the natural desire of Buddhists to preserve their country’s religion.

    • The Thai governement gets money from the oil rich countries that is why little is done to help the southern state tackle islam. Oil money corrupting as usual. Ironic that the third noble truth in buddhism is to eradicate craving as a way to liberation. Seems oil money overrides the Noble Truths.

    • Hi! I’m a buddhist from SL. There is no such problem between religions as some people say. Specially between christians and buddhists. Christians and Buddhists have more similarities and they often intermarry. I have so many Christian relatives and neighbours. Buddhists celebrates christmas as a ceromony (although they don’t go to church) and Christians often take part in Buddhist ceromonies. Both people dress same and the culture is very similar.

      But, when it comes to Muslims generally (not all, but specially those who live in highly muslim concentrated areas) want to distinguish them selves religiously. And they never get mix with other communities.

  26. So, if 10% of the population of Sri Lanka is Muslim; just how the hell does ANYONE know that it was Buddhists that desecrated the churches and turned over the statue of the Vighin Mary?!… Sounds to me MUCH more like the work of Asslifters than Buddhists!!…….

    • Halaal or No Halaal but why one should kill and eat livestock creation of God just use milk and other product which access after livestock usage be human not jungalstock

    • fogie is right Halal is a propaganda to islam and to make more money as hala meat has to go though muslims i am sure moderate muslims will be wondering whats happening…i will not go to KFC if they serv e halal meat why shoild i as i hink the way the cut the throat of a animal slowly to bleed its very cruel oneday the muslims are going to take over so wake up sri lanka
