UP CM Yogi Adityanath bans animal sacrifice in open during Bakrid

UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has reportedly directed the police authorities and the administration to ensure that sacrifice of animals does not take place in the open during the upcoming festival of Bakrid.

He has further directed the authorities to make sure that the blood and the offal were not disposed of by the devout into drains.

According to reports, the chief minister gave these instructions to the authorities through video conferencing in connection with the Eid-ul-Azha festival at his official residence on Sunday evening.

He said that the current month of Shravan is going on, in which Kanwad yatra is going on.


This time the festival of Bakrid will be celebrated on August 22. Muslims sacrifice animals and cattle during the festival.

In the past, there has been a confrontation between two communities on this issue for which the Chief Minister has instructed the officials to ensure the safety of the people and the cattle.
