    it is sad how little desi people know about animal cruelty. I do not mean to put us ALL in one group but our people can reach engineering and medical highs but basic suffering they do not get. NO RELIGION allows this behavior and if you belive so, thn you are not MUSLIM, JEW OR CHRISTIAN…just plain evil. Khair, this blog will not make much difference but it can make us think…

    Why Animal Rights?

    Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to the circus and to zoos. Many of us bought our beloved “petsâ€

    very disturbing, a defenceless animal and some enjoyying faces.
    but nice to see people debating here for a social cause atleast. It is true religion has nothing to do with cruelty. Even Hindus do sacrifice in the name of God. but in my view, a killing is a killing, whether it is for a sacrfice or food or just for fun. One can imagine the pain when being slaughtered.
    I sincerely apologise , if my comments hurt anyone

    I didn’t know that my comment sometime before Eid had triggered a religious discussion. I opened the Internet today at an Internet cafe after a break of several days. (I have been unable to get an Internet connection at home so far in spite of repeated “inshaallahs” and promises. I suppose Eid holidys, both official and unofficial, have also something to do with this. But there is still too much beauracracy here.)

    Anyway, I was not blaming religion or slaughter of animals in my earlier comment. (How can I? I am a meat eater myself.) I was blaming the way the poor animal was being dragged to its death and being treated as a source of amusement.

    Regarding the ritual of Qurbani, I agree with Iqbal who said ( and I have quoted this once before):
    Yeh sab kiya hain? faqat ik nukta-e-imaaN ki tafseeraiN
    Brahimi nazar paida zara mushkil say hoti hai

    “What is all this? only interpreation of one point of faith
    The vision or spirit of Ibrahim is missing in all this”
