The Bhartiya Janta Party on Monday suggested that Bakr-Eid be observed in an “eco-friendly” way today and called upon the intelligentsia to discuss the same. Little did they know, that this backfire them inturn. Attacking party secretary Shrikant Sharma for such a proposal, AIMIM MP Asaduddin Owaisi said that he was trying to impose Hindutva ideology through innuendos.

Owaisi said, “Assuming he (Sharma) said that we should not perform any animal sacrifice on Bakr-Eid, the BJP is trying to impose its Hindutva ideology on India. But instead of doing so openly, it is resorting to innuendoes. Can they make the same appeal against animal sacrifice by non-Muslims in many other parts of India?”

Responding to a question on whether Bakr-Eid should be observed in an eco-friendly was, Sharma said, “The way we are becoming more eco-friendly, the way a campaign in this regard for Holi and Diwali festivals is going on in the country and the world… it is a matter of debate and there should be a debate over it. It will be good if the intelligentsia in the country discusses it.”

Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind president Maulana Arshad Madani on the issue said, “The question of how Bakr-Eid should be observed is beyond human intervention. Communalism is being fomented everywhere but this is about ignorance of the spirit and foundations of a religion.”

Meanwhile, The Awadh unit of RSS-backed organisation Muslim Rashtriya Manch has decided to not sacrifice a goat or any other animal today and will instead celebrate the festival by cutting a cake baked in the shape of a goat.

At their homes, the Manch workers will not be cooking biryani. They will offer sewaiyan and dahi vada among friends and relatives. The 5-kg cake will be cut at the Manch’s Awadh prant office in Lucknow today.

“Bakr-Eid can be celebrated also by cutting a cake just like people celebrate birth anniversaries,” said Awadh Prant convener of the Manch, Raees Khan. Khan also added that of the practice receives good response, they will try to promote it in other prants as well.

      Nonsense, now Hindurashtrians want to redefine what a 1500 yr old revered religion of 2 billion Muslims should be!Kashmir a Muslim majority state, is thinking why should they be part of a Hindu Rashtra. BJP & RSS injected life into dead Kashmir problem, it's better they uphold secular Indian Consution and don't break India into pieces.

          very good suggestion. Why are leftists and AAPtard who in the past missed no opportunity in sermonizing Hindus about eco-friendly festivals silent on this? Only an or a religious minded pervert will support such an inhumane act of killing an innocent animal for his/her idiosyncracies

            Does Owaisi live in India? Does he not know that animal slaughter has been banned in Hindu temples? All the other religions are moving forward with the times and leaving behind practices that harm the environment. How is it Hindutva agenda to request some solid thinking on killing harmless animals in the name of religion? If Islam preaches mercy and benevolence as many are quick to point out, where does that mercy disappear when you kill a defenceless animal as your sacrifice? Or is it sacrificing mercy?

              BJP knows very well that they have ONE SHOT - People are going to kick them off and process is already ON. RSS mindset wont work and whatever @bjp4india do, is going to haunt them very soon. India is not RSS , was never and will never. Just see what is going to happen in coming months - If #aap managed to shine as third front ....BJP is going to face tough time in handling public outrage. This is sheer mental sickness and talibanism - nothing else.

                Good suggestions if mouthed by the devil loose their sheen.If the same would have come out the leaders of community to which it belongs might have evoked some sense otherwise it is hard to change the deep rooted existing traditions. RSS is known to be a rogue organization by non-Hindu organization and vice versa . Otherwise it is a good suggestion not because it spares goats but it serves the Eco system also on earth.as
