A woman in the complaint mentioned that the accused persons barged into her home on 17th June and began searching for her husband who had informed the police about the slaughtering of cattle on Bakrid at the hands of Islamists

On 17th June, massive controversy erupted in Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar, Maharashtra, after Islamists in the region allegedly slaughtered cows instead of goats on the occasion of Bakrid. The accused Islamists also are said to have attacked local Hindus and Hindu activists who protested against the act.

The police were immediately called to the spot who tried to pacify the matter. Several Hindus who were injured in the incident have been admitted to the hospital for proper medical treatment, as per reports.

The Hindu activists initially got a tip that the Islamists were slaughtering cows instead of goats on Bakrid. They then informed the police about the matter who further raided the premises of the Islamists discovering the truth. The police found that several cows were being slaughtered on the occasion of Bakrid instead of goats. The Hindus protested against the incident and raised slogans after which the Islamists attacked several Hindu activists for allegedly informing the police about the slaughtering of cows.

The woman in the complaint mentioned that the accused persons barged into her home on 17th June and began searching for her husband who had informed the police about the slaughtering of cattle on Bakrid at the hands of Islamists. The woman, however, said that her husband was not at home. After this, the accused persons abused the woman, molested her, and threatened to kill her and her husband.

Further, the accused persons are also said to have looted the woman for Rs 14,000. “Arbaz Qureshi, Junaid Sheikh molested me and threatened to kill us. They yelled at me and abused saying that my husband had informed the police about the cow slaughter. The others meanwhile snatched my gold mangal sutra amounting to Rs 14,000,” the Hindu complainant mentioned in the complaint.

BJP’s Sanjay Kenekar meanwhile confirmed the incident. While exclusively talking to Sudarshan News, he stated that Muslim goons in the Daulatabad region barged into Hindu homes and molested women. “I totally condemn this incident on behalf of BJP. Muslim goons attacked Hindu women and Hindu activists for informing the police about the slaughtering of gauvansh. The police in this case took swift action and pacified the matter. They filed complaints and booked the accused persons avoiding any communal incident. I wish to congratulate and thank the police administration for taking such swift action in this case,” Kenekar said.

Notably, a counter-complaint was also filed by Islamists against Hindus identified as Aditya Bodkhe, Akshay Bodkhe, Tushar Mhaske, and Mayur Mhaske for allegedly barging into the home of a Muslim individual to check for the remains of the slaughtered animals. A Muslim woman in the complaint stated that these four Hindu individuals allegedly abused her and disturbed her home while searching for the remains. As per the complaint, the incident happened after the husband of the woman was detained by the police for slaughtering cows on Bakrid.

Why do Muslims slaughter animals on Bakrid?

Muslims every year slaughter livestock during the festival of Eid and believe that the tradition was first initiated by the Prophet Muhammed himself. They kill the animal by Halal method and then distribute the meat amongst their family members and others.

In reverence of Prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son, Ismaeel, as an act of obedience to God’s order, God intervened and provided an animal as a substitute sacrifice, leading to the celebration of Bakrid or Eid-ul-Adha. Muslims commemorate this day every year, honoring Allah via the sacrifice of an animal. It is a three-day event and comprises goat and sheep sacrifices as well as namaz.

OpIndia has obtained both FIRs. Meanwhile, BJP’s Kenekar has said that such actions by Islamists will not be tolerated by the state administration. He has demanded strict action against all the 19 accused Islamists. Further investigations in the matter are underway.
