Guwahati: All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) chief Badruddin Ajmal has asked the Muslim community in Assam not to sacrifice cows during the upcoming Eid to be celebrated on July 10.
“India is home to individuals from many different communities, ethnic groups, and religions. The Sanatan faith, which worships the cow as a holy symbol, is practiced by the majority of Indians. Hindus believe cow as a mother,” Ajmal said.
Also, Islam says not to hurt any animals, added the Dhubri Lok Sabha MP.
“That is why I appeal to the Muslims not to kill cows during Eid. We strongly object to this practice,” he said.
Ajmal urged the Muslim community to offer the sacrifice using other animals in order to fulfil the religious obligation and avoid hurting the sentiments of others.
Darul Uloom Deoband, the country’s largest Islamic academic institute had also issued an appeal to avoid sacrificing cows on Eid two years back, said the AIUDF chief.
The Assam unit of Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind also requested the same.
Assam government last year banned the sale of beef in areas dominated by non-beef consuming communities and within a 5-km radius of temples and ‘satras’ formed by the 15-16th century saint-reformer Srimanta Sankaradeva.
