The animal husbandry department attached to the Mira Bhayandar Municipal Corporation (MBMC) on Monday cancelled the temporary permission awarded to slaughter sacrificial animals for Eid-ul-Adha in Kashigaon.

The action followed in response to a complaint filed by the members of a local trust who not only alleged commercial exploitation in the name of religion but also raised apprehensions about possibility of a feud erupting between two communities due to the slaughtering which had been planned on an open plot amidst a densely populated residential colony housing people of all faiths and religion.

The local police had also given an adverse report to ensure that there was no threat to the law and order in the region. This year Eid-ul-Adha will be celebrated on 17, June.

The two-day permission from 17 to 19 June which was awarded by the MBMC for tying and slaughtering the animals on an open plot in the Mashacha Pada area of Kashigaon was cancelled by deputy commissioner- Ravi Pawar on Monday (10, June).

The trust has also sought action against the organisers for misleading civic administration. Bakri Eid, also known as Eid ul-Adha is an annual festival of sacrifice celebrated by the Muslim community globally.
