This comes after the notification from the Animal Welfare Board of India regarding guidelines to be followed during animal slaughter and transportation ahead of Eid, left people from the Muslim community confused.
Challenging the Animal Welfare Board notification, advocate Hafizur Rahman Choudhury filed a public interest litigation (PIL) in the court.
Hearing the matter, the high court today gave the important ruling. It clarified that there will be no restriction on sacrifice.
Reacting to the ruling of the Gauhati High Court, senior advocate Hafiz Rashid Ahmed said, “Kurbani has to be in line with the Assam cattle preservation act.”
