By Indika Sri Aravinda

The Bodu Bala Sena is to file legal action against the All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama (ACJU ) over the issuing of the Halal certificate.

General Secretary of the Bodu Bala Sena the Venerable Galagodatte Gnanasara Thero alleged that local businesses are being forced to pay for the certificate.

He said the Bodu Bala Sena will also investigate who gave the initial clearance for Halal certificates to be issued in Sri Lanka.

The Venerable Galagodatte Gnanasara Thero said the Ministry of Defence convened a meeting with the monks recently to discuss the tense situation which arose in the country following protests over the issuing of the Halal certificates.

The Bodu Bala Sena insists it is not working to the agenda of any individual or organization either locally or overseas.COURTESY:THE SUNDAY LEADER
