    People on Eid should sacrifice their children, instead of animals, says BJP MLA

    BJP MLA from Loni Constituency in Ghaziabad, Nand Kishore Gurjar stirred a controversy when he asked people celebrating Eid ul Adha to "sacrifice their children instead of animals". He also said that "meat spreads coronavirus" so people should not be allowed to sacrifice innocent animals.

    "People who want to sacrifice on Eid should sacrifice their children. I will not let people consume meat and alcohol in Loni. We will not let people sacrifice innocent animals because meat spreads coronavirus," said BJP legislator according to a report in news agency ANI.

    "The way people have followed the guidelines of the government by not offering prayers and namaz at temples and mosques to contain COVID-19, in the same way, they must not offer the sacrifice of animals on this Eid," he said.

    Why is that surprising? For Hindus, animals like the cow are the holiest of creatures, they give sustenance to their keepers and even their waste product has healing properties. Children of Abraham will only grow up to kill these sacred cows for their own greed and pleasure. You may not agree with it, but you have to see through the eyes of majority population in India.

    Excuse my ignorance, I assumed all religions would value human life more than any animal. If Hindus had a choice of saving a cows life or a BJP members childs life,you suggesting they would choose the cow?

    A lot of the meat is donated to charity and poor segment of the society whilst creating hundreds of jobs so overall it has a huge positive impact on the society and economy. Itís not like animals arenít being eaten otherwise

    I know and I appreciate charity. Itís the ďsacrificeĒ bit that seems so backward. Why would god want you to sacrifice an animal?

    Dont assume, there is no such thing as God needing any sacrifce. Islam is very very clear, God doesn't need anything. I know in the Hindu religion gold is given to the deity and belongs to him/her. In Islam this is a grave sin to suggest God needs anything, he is the giver not the needy.

    Animals are sacrifced to feed the poor, it's a simple as this.

    I think you are looking at the word "sacrifice" too literally. It simply means killing the animal to distribute meat and fulfilling a religious instruction.

    What's also worth noting is that this is a representative for an area right next to where the worst killing and looting happened in Delhi.

    Fair - I didnít know that the motive is purely charity. I thought it had to do with parting away with something that is dear to you.

    Your second part is also correct when you look at the origin of Qurbani, this is the tradition of Prophet Abraham (Aleihi salam) when he sacrificed his beloved son. But this is a very long story where God tested the submission of his friend servant. And also remember nothing happend to his son, he was totally fine and instead an animal was sacrificed.

    So in order to keep the tradition alive we are commanded to sacrifice an animal, and only those who meet certain criterias are ordered to sacrifice an animal and the major part of the animal is supposed to be given away in charity and to friends.

    I know what you are trying to do when you try to call it ębackwardĽ, but just relax, this religion is very easy and it will not recommend actions which are harmful.

    Once again a sad state of affairs where ignorant racist leaders just to garner votes from one community spews these kind of idiotic and sadist statements towards another community and the general population just Mindlessly follows without challenging the status quo..
    And this kind of chatter seldom works in Kerala where Iím from since folks on this side are over 90% literate and we almost never vote for Bjp. We have a good mix of muslims Christians and Hindus And we stand united and put our people first before we let religion or animals, caste any other bias come between us. We respect each otherís boundaries and generally vote for good leaders who wants to do whats best for the economy. Itís called ďGods own countryď and you guys should visit one day!!

    Bigots will be bigots. The animals which are sacrificed are reared for their meat anyways, dont know what's the problem in killing them or consuming their meat. Sad state of affairs when we have such leaders in the country.

    He is just a two-bit MLA. Other than for a handful of his bigoted supporters his words have no value.

    That said, the BJP (and all political parties in India), should get rid of such clowns from their organisations.

    Its an idiotic statement , we are not surprised it comes from BJP , step son of RSS.

    People who know not an iota about Hindu scriptures , have become defenders of Hinduism.

    This from a country that exports so much beef to Muslim countries. Indian hypocrisy exposed again.


    PP's own self proclaimed sharpshooter and defender of Islam and Pakistan.
