Last year’s advisory by Islamic Center

Last year, the Islamic Centre of India in Lucknow issued an advisory asking Muslims not to share pictures of animal sacrifice on social media during Eid-ul-Azha, or Bakri Eid.

The advice was given out of respect for the religious sentiments of other communities.

The Islamic Centre has said that the community must ensure that only animals on which there is no legal restriction are sacrificed.
