The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) on Monday that is two days before the festival of Eid-ul-Adha, permitted to slaughter 300 water buffaloes each day from July 21 to July 23 with a time frame of 6 am to 6 pm at Deonar Abattoir, to perform a ritual sacrifice during Bakrid.
“The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation
(BMC) will keep a strict eye on all the activities which are going to take place to make sure that all the actives are being done with proper care and while following Covid 19 protocols. No one will be permitted to enter inside.” Dr. Yogesh Shetye, General Manager of Deonar Abattoir, stated this.
The number of buffaloes being slaughtered this year has been doubled from last year by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) as last year the permission to slaughter the buffaloes were 150 for three days. As the numbers have doubled still different organizations think that it is too less.
Muslims all around the world will again celebrate this year’s Eid-al-Fitr in uncommon conditions with stringent Covid 19 restrictions. This year’s Eid-al-Fitr was said to be on Monday 19 July but no glimpse of the crescent moon would decide the start of the Dhu-AL-Hijjah on 9 July. So, the festival was postponed by a day, with Saudi Arabia stating that the festival will now begin on Tuesday 20 July, which will last for four days.
