Mervin S does it again PDF Print E-mail
Former Deputy Minister of Highways Mervin Silva has taken away about 50 cattle by force brought by Muslims from various parts of the island legally to be sacrificed on the Hajji Day from a place in Akbar Town in Wattala.

The minister has come with police officers from Kiribathgoda and Wattala police stations and taken away the cows stating that slaughter of cows is against Buddhism.

Out of these cows about 35 have been released the same night from Kiribathgoda and Peliyagoda police stations and the police had said that they did not bring the other cows. Western PC member Mujibar Rahman addressing a press conference at the opposition leader’s residence, said that Mervin Silva cannot consider himself to be a true Buddhist as he has voted in favour of the Gambling act in the parliament and added that at a time when all communities should stand up together as one, first of all you must learn to respect the traditions of all religions and this cannot be expected from a govt that has ministers like Mervin Silva.
