Animal slaughter is not prohibited on Eid, according to the administration of Jammu and Kashmir.
The Jammu and Kashmir administration stated on Friday that there is no ban on bovine slaughter in the union territory, clarifying that an earlier order prohibiting illegal killing of cows and camels on the occasion of Eid-ul-Adha was issued by the animal welfare board for the implementation of various acts concerning animal slaughter.According to an official spokesman for the Animal and Sheep Husbandry Department, the Jammu and Kashmir administration has not issued any order prohibiting the slaughter of animals in accordance with rules. "Every year, the Animal Welfare Board of India issues an advisory regarding animal slaughtering, which must be carried out in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. This year, the same advisory was issued and forwarded to the appropriate authorities "He stated.
He clarified that the earlier advisory was misinterpreted as an order. Previously, this communication drew harsh criticism from religious and political groups throughout the Valley.
