An investigation on illegal camel slaughter in public places by Kanishka Sharma and Sonya Ghosh

Posted on | September 2, 2012 | 24 Comments

Camel2 at Jama Masjid, New Delhi the day before the sacrifice

As affluence in India rises more and more larger animals such as bovines,  camels and increasigly horses are slaughtered to show the ‘status ‘ of the person making the sacrifice. Slaughter was symbolic and never meant to be a status parade that it has become.

The camel cries out as its primary blood vessels are punctured with a blunt knife

Even on Bakr Eid slaughter of animals other than goats or sheep is not allowed under Indian law. No slaughter is allowed other than at a slaughter house under legal procedure and an exception is provided for ritual slaughter on Eid but can only be provided for sheep & goat. You can see The Voice of Stray Dogs‘ analysis of legal cases and judgments on slaughter of cow & camels on Bakr Eid here. However it is increasingly common to see the ‘spectacle’ of animals slaughtered publicly for the amusement of those witnessing the slaughter.

    In India, if animal slaughter in / out of temples in the name of Kali or Bhairava (Hindu) is illegal but still goes on, its a case of bad implementation of an existing law. In any case, even that much should be stopped. But in case of Islamic animal slaughter on Eid day, its legal to slaughter goats and sheep (and animals other than sheep are also slaughtered, including the cow, holy to Hindus). Why this difference? If animal slaughter in the name of Kali is illegal, why is it legal in the name of Allah? Once again, animal activists (like their cousin activists, the environmentalists) will find themselves on the same side as the Hindu Activists. And I am all three: Hindu activists, animal rights activist and environmentalist. For all three reasons, I oppose the idea of slaughter.

    These slaughters are rituals of uneducated ‘creatures’. I cannot call them ‘humans’ because of brutal murder and useless violence.

    The only possibility to stop this bullshit is to send the children to school where they have to learn to respect LIFE on our planet. We only have ONE mother EARTH and we have to protect her with all the beauty in/on it!!!!!

    It is most gruesome video that I have ever seen.In Islamic killing the animal is killed by extreme cruelty and it seems that until and unless the voice comes from within Moslem society itself this won’t stop and thus it will inflict sufferings and pain to millions of animals who can’t have their voices heard.

    I have been shocked by level of cruelty in the illegal slaughter of this cammel and other animals in India ~ wow, and here we are in England not realizing what’s really going on. Many thanks for bringing this to our attention, It is now our duty to spread this news far and wide, so people realize the Horrific murders for many animals in India ~ Is there no love for life any more – how very sad.

    I was born & bought up in India & always thought of India as a spiritual country. ..but in recent years have discovered such a shocking level of animal cruelty that i have become utterly disgusted at the senseless barbaric acts that go on every day & all over the country. I am now not proud of India like i used to be. How can people inflict this terrible torture & cruelty on innocent animals who feel just like we do. My wish is taht all those people will suffer that same fate & i do believe they will. Thank you for showing us the truth behind the false facade.

    Slaughter of cows and camels is going on a massive scale in our country, more so in North Indian states of UP, Bihar and Bengal because of ever increasing Muslim population in these states. And it will grow even more and will be more open because the governments in these states has quite literaly given an open license to Muslims for carrying on their activities. Media don’t show the true picture because of being termed as communal. Police don’t act on these people because their masters have said so. If Hindus of these states don’t react now I am pretty sure that these states will ask for an Islamic republic in these states in next 5-10 years.

    Hi, nice article, but can you guys specify this in big that this is not a part of Indian culture, and that this is a part of muslim practice and done in all muslim countries, and this is how Halal meat is prepared.

    Problem is that, since people do not understand, there is a huge uproar in the net from people around the world, where people are thinking this as an Indian practice.

    One such comment in this page in french asks why we are killing animals since we don’t eat them after. The article is not clear, it is brining bad name to India and Indians, requesting writer to add additional comments, in big, so that people understand the context.

    What do the People of India hope to accomplish with Barbaric Ritual???? It Screams of ANIMAL CRUELTY/Do they NOT know that ‘Thou Shalt NOT KILL” ?? For what ?? What Redemptive or Cleansing or God knows what that these People think they are accomplishing by slaughtering an Innocent Animal-That Camel is JUST as MUCH one of God’s Creations as they are-Do they actually think their God Smiles down on this shedding of innocent Blood??? Think Again!!! This is Inhumane and Uncivilized!!! Wake Up People!! You are accomplishing NOTHING GOOD!!
