Ghaziabad : A BJP’s MLA from Loni Constituency of Ghaziabad, Nand Kishore Gurjar has stirred up a hornet’s nest when he advised Muslim community to either sacrifice their sons or give up the practice of sacrificing innocent animals on the occasion of Eid al-Adha.
“The way people have followed the guidelines of the government by not offering prayers and namaz at temples and mosques to contain COVID-19, in the same way, they must not give the sacrifice of animals on this Eid,” BJP MLA said.
“I request the Muslim brothers not to give ‘qurbani’ of animals. We will stop those who will perform the ritual animal sacrifice. We will not let this happen in Loni,” he said.
“So if they have to sacrifice somebody then it should be either their sons or if they can’t do that then they have no right to take a life of an innocent being,” he said.
