The Board of Commerce states that Halal certification would not be utilized within the country hereafter.


Addressing a media briefing held in Colombo this morning, Chairman of the Board of Commerce Susantha Rathnayeke noted that only goods exported from Sri Lanka would bear the Halal certification.




Murshid Moulasar head of the Halal certification division of the All Ceylon Jamiyathul Ulama Organization who was also present during the media briefing noted that his organization was prepared to do away with the Halal logo if it impinged on national harmony.
