Citizens of Dhaka witnessed a horrific sight amidst the celebration of Eid al-Adha on Tuesday. Rainfall and animal sacrifices across the city created a dreadful scene of blood streams across streets in the city.
Waterlogging in many parts of the city got mixed with the blood following the sacrifices of the animals creating the disturbing scene. The flooded parts of the city gave an impression akin to rivers of blood.
According to reports, regardless of the designated spot, people slaughtered animals right in front of their homes.
Areas like Malibagh, Baily Road, Shantinagar, Bijoynagar, Paltan, Motijheel, Jatrabari, Bakshi Bazar and Kathalbagan saw people slaughtering animals right in front of their homes.
The two city corporations had designated 1,000 spots – 496 in the north and 504 in the south – for slaughtering animals. However, even as early as 7.30 am in the morning, several residents were seen performing the sacrifice in the streets leaving heavy accumulation of blood and other waste, reports Dhaka Tribune.
Khandker Millatul Islam, deputy chief waste management official from Dhaka South City Corporation said that waterlogging has been problem for a long time. Islam added that the the corporation is working towards solving the issue.
Though every religion has the right for practicing and celebrating in their own way but butchering thousands of animals right on the street is totally inhumane.
