Tale of goat’s murder.

DSC_KMBJ09Every year around this time of the year, sacrificial animals mostly goats, sheep and cows travel from the rural areas of the country to make their way to the urban homes to be sacrificed in the name of Allah on the eve of Eid and with the opening of this whole new seasonal consumer market sellers stoup down to all sorts of cheep tactics the sell their live stalks for higher profits.

Stories of horns of goats glued with super glue, artificially fixed teeth of cows and goats, and those of their sewed ears are all too common but this year a friend of ours bought home a good, healthy beautiful looking which after arriving to his started acting a bit sick and was taken to a veterinarian doctor in Gulshan-E-Iqbal block 2. The doctor for some odd reason diagnosed the goat with phenomena and gave the poor animal a couple of injections.

Only half an hour later the goat seemed like it was almost about to die, and was slaughtered immediately, after which when the butcher opened up the animals stomach he discovered it filled with raw gram flour paste which was probably feed to the animal to make it look more fat and healthy.
