Take all precautions while sacrificing animals: Kashmir’s Grand Mufti Nasir-ul-Islam asks people

Srinagar: Kashmir’s Grand Mufti Nasir-ul-Islam has asked people to take all precautions while sacrificing animals and distributing meat among people on Eid-ul-Azha.

“On Eid-ul-Azha people should take care and maintain social distance, wear face masks, and use hand sanitizers. They should follow all SOPs while sacrificing the animals,” Mufti Nasir ul Islam told news agency Kashmir Indepth News Service (KINS).

He said that people should take all precautions while distributing the meat. “The Qurbani meat can be distributed for some days. People should not worry about it. This can also be done on fourth or fifth Eid.””The Qurbani should be done in proper and traditional manner as it is important practice in Islam,” he said.

He asked people not to sacrifice animals on roads. “They (animals) are not carriers of disease. The COVID-19 disease is transmitted through humans,” he said.

The Qurbani meat should be divided equally in three parts. The first part should be distributed among poor and neighbours. Second part should be distributed among relatives and the third part should be for self use.

“On the occasion of Eid ul Azha people should take care of their neighborhood and help them. It is the duty of every Muslim to take care of needy so that they can celebrate Eid with happiness,” the Grand Mufti said.(KINS)
