Uddhav Thackeray led the Maharashtra Government likely to drop the promotion of 'symbolic sacrifice' ahead of Bakra Eid. Muslim leaders and MLAs demanded the State Government and said that there is no symbolic sacrifice in Islam.
"There is no symbolic sacrifice in Islam. It is creating confusion and we are glad the Government has heeded our demand. We also demand small goat markets across the city so that people can buy goats adhering to Covid protocols," said Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) member Saleem Sarang, who led a delegation to different politicians.
Congress MLA Amin Patel said that the promotion of sacrifice animals symbolically must be removed.
