Faizer denies claims street dogs are to be killed

Local Government and Provincial Councils Minister Faizer Mustapha denied claims that there was a move to kill street dogs ahead of Vesak.

He said that a social media campaign had been launched claiming that street dogs are to be killed.

Activists disturbed by reports of attempts to kill street dogs have urged the public to take photographs of anyone seen rounding up dogs on the street.

Mustapha insisted that the allegation that he was involved in moves to kill stray dogs is an attempt to create racial disharmony as he is a Muslim.

The Minister said that on the contrary his Ministry is taking measures to ensure animals are taken care of by law. (Colombo Gazette)

  2. ‘Mustapha insisted that the allegation that he was involved in moves to kill stray dogs is an attempt to create racial disharmony ‘ OHHHHH please trying to deflect the allegations by bringing up race. Everyone know what sin this person is committing. A man with no sense of decency. Just cat the mind back to the last president election until the dying days of election he was with MR, then stabbed him in the back and jumped to stay in power. Nothing to do with been a Muslim or other. A rotten human being with no values.
