During the festival, the ban on animal sacrifice will extend to various public areas, including streets, footpaths, hospitals, nursing homes, schools, colleges, and parks, as well as places of worship such as temples and mosques. This comprehensive prohibition aims to ensure that the act of animal sacrifice is limited to authorized slaughterhouses exclusively. These designated establishments will be the only ones permitted to carry out the butchering of animals on the day of the festival.

If any individual or organization is found to violate the guidelines set by the BBMP regarding the ban on animal sacrifice may face legal consequences. Such offenses can result in prosecution under the Karnataka State Animal Sacrifices Act of 1959, specifically, Section 3, which carries a punishment of up to six months of imprisonment, a penalty, or both. Additionally, the Indian Penal Code, under Section 429, prescribes a punishment of up to five years of imprisonment for such offenses.

Bakrid, also known as Eid-Al-Adha, is set to be celebrated this year on Thursday. This auspicious occasion holds great significance as it honors the devotion of Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) to Allah. It is a time to reflect on his unwavering faith and willingness to sacrifice, which serves as a reminder of the importance of surrendering to the divine will. This period holds immense spiritual importance for Muslims worldwide, as it encompasses the Hajj pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca and culminates with the festivities of Bakrid.

The meat from the sacrificed animal is distributed among family, friends, and the less fortunate, symbolizing generosity and unity within the community. Muslims around the globe eagerly anticipate this joyous occasion, as it serves as a reminder of the values of sacrifice, devotion, and the importance of submitting to the divine will.

The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has been known to issue similar orders on multiple occasions during various festivals and holidays in Bengaluru, which have included bans on the sale of meat. As a result of these orders, slaughterhouses, and butcher shops have consistently remained closed during such events. A notable instance was observed earlier this year in March during the celebration of Rama Navami.
