No ban at J&K on slaughtering animals on Eid day: Administration | India News


SRINAGAR: The J&K administration clarified on Friday that there was no ban on the territory of the Union of the slaughter of cattle, in accordance with the rules, on the occasion of Eid-ul-Adha .
Principal Secretary (Animal and Sheep Raising) Naveen Kumar Choudhary said the earlier “notice” was misquoted as a restraining order. “This is just a notice, not a restraining order and it was issued by the Animal Care Council asking those concerned to comply with animal laws and the same was conveyed by the director of the planning, ”he said.
The clarification comes after several Muslim organizations in the valley strongly protested an order issued earlier by the Animal Welfare Council, seeking to ban the illegal slaughter of cows and camels in Eid-ul-Adha. In a communication addressed to the divisional commissioners and the IGP of Jammu as well as of Kashmir, the J&K Animal and Sheep Husbandry and Fisheries Department had called for the prohibition of the illegal slaughter of cows, calves and camels on the occasion of the Muslim festival. .
“The Indian Animal Welfare Council, considering the welfare of animals, has called for the implementation of all precautionary measures to strictly enforce animal welfare laws, viz. Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act 1960; Transport Animal Welfare Rules, 1978; Transportation of Animals (Amendment) Regulations, 2001; Slaughterhouse Regulations, 2001; Guidelines of the Municipal Laws & Food Safety & Standards Authority of India for the slaughter of animals (under which camels cannot be slaughtered) during the festival, ”the communication said.
Mufti Azam Mufti Nasir-ul-Islam said, even otherwise, Muslims in Kashmir do not sacrifice cows or camels in Eid-ul-Adha due to cultural traditions. “So there was no need to raise such an issue at a time when the country needs development and should focus on other bigger issues,” he said.
