AIUDF chief Ajmal says, BJP's elections 2024 agenda is 'Hindutva'

Assam: Key Islamic body urges Muslims not to sacrifice cow on ‘Baqra Eid’.  The Assam unit of Jamiat Ulema, a leading Islamic organization, has appealed to Muslims not to sacrifice cows on the occasion of Eid-ul-Adha or Baqra Eid so as not to offend the religious sentiments of Hindus.

Badruddin Ajmal, head of the organisation’s state unit, said that since “sacrifice” was an important part of the festival, animals other than cows could be sacrificed.
“The Sanatan Dharma of the Hindu religion considers the cow as its mother and worships her. We must not hurt her religious sentiments,” Ajmal, who is also the president of the political party AIUDF, said in a statement.

According to him, the Islamic seminary Darul Uloom Deoband had issued a public appeal in 2008 not to offer a cow as part of the sacrifice on the occasion of the festival and pointed out that there was no mention of it compulsion to sacrifice a cow.
“I reiterate the same appeal and urge my fellow believers to sacrifice an alternative animal instead of a cow so as not to offend the religious sentiments of the majority of the country’s population,” Dhubri said. ۔ ”

Ajmal said that camels, goats, cows, buffaloes, sheep and other animals can be sacrificed during Eid-ul-Adha.
“Since the cow is considered sacred by the majority of people, I humbly appeal to people to Muslims not to sacrifice cow and sacrifice an alternative animal,” he said.

Eid al-Adha or Eid al-Adha is likely to take place on July 10.
