Sri Lanka Legalises Gambling

Sri Lanka is a beautiful tropical destination, with thick jungles, beautiful beaches and ancient cities, you would think this was enough to attract tourists by the flock load. However, today in a bid to boost tourism, gambling has been legalised. This is despite protests from locals.

It is said this will only be in designated areas of the country and will permit casinos, betting centres and other related businesses.

Gambling is frowned upon by many religions and with Sri Lanka being a Buddhist nation the decision has caused a lot of controversy.

Do you think was the right decision to make?
