Feb 14, Colombo: Another organization of Muslim clerics in Sri Lanka has come forward to criticize the organization of Muslim clerics issuing Halal certificates to businesses in the island. (ACJU).

Sri Lanka Jamiyaathul Ulama (SLJU) organization has criticized the All Ceylon Jamiyaathul Ulama (ACJU) organization as a corrupt body.

Mohammed Aiyaz, the media spokesman of the SLJU says that the ACJU organization should reveal the accounts of the organization without creating conflicts among religions.

He further charged that ACJU has become politicized and demanded a government body to regulate the issuing of Halal certificates.

A Buddhist activist group also has complained that there was no knowledge on how or who had given the mandate to ACJU to issue Halal certificates at a price and called for an investigation into the matter.

The ACJU earlier said obtaining the Halal certificate for businesses is purely voluntary and the Ulama is only charging the cost of producing certificates.
