Sindh govt encourages collective sacrifices on Eidul Azha to curb virus spread

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Karachi Commissioner Iftikhar Shallwani has approved arrangements of collective sacrifice during Eidul Azha with the assistance of non-profit organisations. Shallwani asked the organisations to make arrangements for online booking and dispatching of meat due to the COVID-19 pandemic. People could also obtain their meat from zonal offices of these organisations.

According to a statement issued by the Commissioner Office, a meeting was held at the office on Saturday which was attended by representatives of various philanthropist organisations, including the Edhi Foundation, Chhipa Welfare Association, Saylani Welfare Trust, Al-Khidmat Foundation, Jamia Binoria Site and Daawat-e-Islami.

The commissioner requested the citizens to benefit from the collective sacrifice arranged by non-profit organisations. He added that this would discourage the slaughter of animals at every nook and cranny of the city and help the city administration keep the city clean.
