Govt to Setup Online Sacrificial Animals Markets Ahead of Eid ul Azha!

“As Covid-19 is spreading fast, we are considering a proposal to either not set up animal markets or at least work out a strategy to at least reduce gathering of people for sale/purchase purposes. It will only be possible when we encourage online sales of sacrificial animals,” the official.

The Punjab government-imposed ban on the temporary animal markets across the country. Following the ban, the government has given a go-ahead to set up online sacrificial animals’ markets. The decision is taken to maintain social distancing in order to prevent the spread of the deadly coronavirus.

“It is being planned to develop apps and websites through which traders can market their animals through photos and videos and make them available at various small designated spots/farms out or inside the city,” informed a government official.

Moreover, the government also considers to put a ban on home slaughters by butchers.

“The government is afraid that butchers, who generally don’t take care of their health, especially in context with Coronavirus due to lack of awareness, may become a source of infecting others.

“The government wants them (butchers) do this work at designated spots (parks, grounds) under Covid-19 SOPs and precautionary measures,” informs the official.

However, a final decision will be taken on July 2nd.
