Lucknow: On Bakra-Eid, People To Cut Cakes, Not Goats
Bakrid 2018: Earlier on Wednesday, the Uttarakhand High Court today imposed a ban on slaughter of goats, sheep or buffaloes in the open or in public on the occasion of Eid-ul-Juha directing authorities to ensure it is done only in abattoirs.
In Lucknow, a bakery is selling cakes with pictures of goats printed on it which they will cut instead of sacrificing an animal.
‘The custom of sacrificing an animal on Bakrid is not right. I appeal to everyone to celebrate the festival by cutting a cake instead of an animal,’ a buyer was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
The final days of hajj coincide with the Eid al-Adha holiday, or "Feast of Sacrifice," to commemorate Abraham's test of faith. Muslims slaughter livestock and distribute the meat to the poor.
Earlier on Wednesday, the Uttarakhand High Court today imposed a ban on slaughter of goats, sheep or buffaloes in the open or in public on the occasion of Eid-ul-Juha directing authorities to ensure it is done only in abattoirs.
Making it clear that the order applied to one and all irrespective of religion, the court also imposed a ban on animal sacrifice inside Hindu temples.
Taking 'suo motu' cognisance of large-scale slaughter of goats and other animals as part of Eid-ul-Juha celebrations, the division bench of Justice Rajiv Sharma and Justice Manoj Tiwari ordered that the slaughter of goats, sheep or buffaloes not take place in the open or in public and must be done in slaughterhouses only.
