Feb 26, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Muslim clerics' organization, All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama (ACJU) today announced that they are ready to withdraw from issuing of Halal certificates if the government takes the responsibility.

Addressing a special press briefing held in Colombo today, M.I.M. Rizvi Mufti, the head of the Jamiyyathul Ulama requested the government to create a methodology to issue the Halal certificate as done by governments of countries like Singapore and Thailand.

The ACJU said they are ready to help the government in this regard. Jamiyyathul Ulama further said that they would continue issuing the Halal certificate until such mechanism is created by the government.

Sri Lanka's Buddhist extremist organization Bodu Bala Sena has given an ultimatum to remove the Halal symbol from the products until March 31. The leaders of Bodu Bala Sena have vowed to completely remove Halal certification by the end of year.
