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.

It turned out that it was only a stomachache which was bothering the animal, who was miss diagnosed by this veterinarian who too was no saint. I shortly after discovered that he was the same veterinarian who some five years back had killed a kitten of mine by giving him around five injections at a time for just a few burses, he was also responsible for killing a dog of our neighbors and a hen of another one of our friends.

Much to my surprise the veterinarian is still running his clinic at the same place since such a long time but then I know of so many quacks in the city who are not even qualified compounders but they are running dispensaries and prescribing medicines to people since more then a couple of decade and they are still there, so who would really worry about the God forsaken animals.

    Thats good you slaughtered it right away. Ours was sick as well, on the day of eid after our goat tasted the bitter cup of death, the butcher informed me that the liver was no good. I asked why, and he said “look, it has worms in it!”

    These type of things will continue to happen unless the citizens will take the initiative to do something about it. Has somebody thought about Better Business Bureaus, which are common in the developed world. Look it up on the net as to what and how they do it. Also, I hope your friend knew that eating the meat of a sick animal is not a very healthy thing to do to begin with. It would have been nice to hear something on this blog how the neighborhood kids are parading the sacrificial animals until the wee hours of the night and if it is in keeping with the Islamic practice of sacrifice during this august season.

    Dear Wasiq,

    Saying “with all due respect” and then calling me a sick person wasn’t called for. Anyways we’re not here for blog wars,but just for the record I didn’t eat our goat and we couldn’t of sold it knowing it’s condition. Our options were slim.

    جو قوم الله سے بھی دھوکے بازی کرے اس قوم کا والی وارث کوئی بھی نہیں قربانی کی جانور مے دو نمبری سے اچھا ہے کے ان پیسوں سے کسی ضررورت مند کی مدد کر دی جاۓ. جو الله اپنی بارگاہ مے قبول کرلے گاالله نے جانور خریدنے والے کی نیت کا اجر دیا ہوگا بیچنے والے کی نیت کی جزا یا سزا کا فیصلہ بھی الله کرنے والا ہے

    slaughter of an animal that has stopped breathing is not an option….its mental decadence….
