Q. Is slaughtering of cows on Bakri-eid considered illegal?

A. No animal can be slaughtered except goats. The Division Bench of Calcutta has ruled that the slaughter of cows by members of the Muslim community on Bakri-eid day is not a requirement of the Muslim religion and should be banned. The Supreme Court has upheld this decision.

The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Slaughter House) Rules, 2001 provides that no one can slaughter animals in slums, in roadside meat shops or in dhabas or private homes. This rule applies to the slaughtering of goats especially on Bakri-eid when they are cut at just any place including roadsides. Slaughter can take place in government designated Idgahs, but not in mosques.
