Jammu & Kashmir: Jammu and Kashmir Separatist Leader, Syed Ali Shah Geelani while addressing the Muslims of Jammu & Kashmir said that while sacrificing animals on the occasion of Eid-ul-Azha, we should adopt a dignified attitude and approach for this dignified religious obligation.
The aim of these sacrifices should be to honour the Sunnah of Prophet Ibrahim and to please Almighty Allah and it should not be intentional to hurt the sentiments of any community or it should not be done to show anybody down-grade.
In a statement issued to the press, Geelani Sahab expressed his deep concern and anguish over the reports that the recent controversial court order about the beef has created a hostile atmosphere in the Jammu region and some fanatic communal elements are preparing the ground for communal violence between Muslims and Hindus on the occasion of Eid-ul-Azha.
While almost every other religious and some separatist organisations have appealed people to only sacrifice bovine animals, he, for a change, has taken a different stance asking people not to hurt the sentiments of others while celebrating their own festivals.
