Eid-ul-Adah: Maulana Firangi Mahali issues a 11-point charter for animal sacrifice

New Delhi

After the Jamiat Ulama-e-Hind, Maulana Arshad Madani advised Muslims on the ritual of sacrificing an animal on the occasion of Eid-ul-Adah, another prominent cleric and Islamic scholar Maulana Khalid Rasheed Farangi Mahali has also released a to-do list for Muslims.

Maulana Khalid Rasheed Farangi Mahali announced that the sacrifice could be done on June 17, 18, and 19 while issuing an 11-point advisory on the issue.

He said like every year, only permitted animals should be sacrificed and the slaughter should not be performed in a public place, roadside, street, or in the park.

“The sacrifice should be done in a pre-built slaughterhouse or a large seminary. At the time of sacrifice, special attention should be paid to cleanliness,” Maulana Khalid Rashid said that animal sacrifice is not a ritual; it’s God’s favorite worship.

He asked the devout to make sure that the excrement of the sacrificial animal should not be thrown in the open. Instead, people should cooperate with civic authorities on it. The people should never pour the blood of an animal in the drain as it contaminates water.

“It is also religiously forbidden to do so. So bury the sacrificial blood in raw soil. A portion of the sacrificial meat should be distributed among the poor. The picture and video of the sacrifice should never be clicked nor uploaded on social media,” he said.

Earlier president of the Jamiat Ulama-e-Hind, Maulana Arshad Madani, urged the Muslims to follow the guidelines laid down by the government concerning the sacrificial animals.

In a statement issued on Thursday, Maulana Madani appealed to the people not to sacrifice animals prohibited as per Indian laws.

“There is no substitute for sacrifice in Islam. It is a religious duty, the offering of which is obligatory on every Muslim. Muslims must strictly follow the government guidelines for qurbani (sacrifice), and since the religion considers qurbani of a black animal instead, it is better to do so to avoid any kind of trouble,” reads the statement.

During the three-day Eid al-Adha feast, Muslims sacrifice animals to follow their religious obligation across the world. However, in India, a section of the society objects to animal sacrifice and some elements even try to generate controversy over it.Maulana Madani asked Muslims not to share pictures of slaughtered animals on social media. “If mischievous elements, at any place, prevent the qurbani of a black animal, some sensible and influential people should take the administration into confidence, and then Qurbani should be offered,” he said.

In case Muslims do not get the right atmosphere and space for qurbani, Maulana Madani said then the qurbani should be offered in a nearby place where qurbani had regularly been offered without any problems.

“At least a goat must be sacrificed there and registration should be done in the office of administration to avoid the problem in future. Muslims of the country must take special care of cleanliness on the occasion,” he said.

He also urged Muslims not to throw animal waste on roads, streets, and drains. The waste should be buried in such a way that it does not spread the stench. Every possible effort should be made so that no one gets hurt by our actions, he said.

Madani also asked the community to remain cautious in the prevailing situation. His statement has come against the backdrop of cow vigilantes often attacking cattle traders over the suspicion of cow slaughter.
