The Supreme Court today endorsed the verdict given by the Appeal Court which had ordered Munneswaram Sri Badrakali Kovil authorities to hold the animal sacrifice poojas on permits.

The Kovil caretakers had challenged the previous verdict given by the Appeal Court to hold animal sacrifices only on a permit.

Rejecting the petition, the Supreme Court decided today that the Kovil caretakers’ board should obtain a permit from the Pradeshiya Sabha in the area before holding such poojas.

The three member panel of Supreme Court Judges included Chief Justice Mohan Peries, Justice Sarath Aabru and Justice Rohini Walgama.

Earlier a petition was filed against animal harassment at the Appeal Court by 13 organizations including the National Bhikku Council.

In its verdict on the petition by animal friendly organizations, the Appeal Court ordered that it is mandatory to obtain a permit to hold poojas such as mass killings of animals.

Having endorsed the Appeal Court verdict, the Supreme Court stated today police have all powers to prevent animal sacrifice if they are held without proper permits.
