Wish Muslim fraternity a very Happy Eid – Eid Mubarak !
Byculla Zoo (Mumbai) – 3 pairs of Humboldt Penguin worth INR2.5 crores would be transferred from South America to the said zoo in Mumbai and the concerned government passed fund for maintenance of those penguins; that might cost INR 19 crores for maintaining and managing an enclosure that would be made to keep the temperature up to 20’C.
Also, it has been reported so far that around 20 years back, some Kangaroos, when kept in Indian environment, had died of viral infection.
Some Chimpanzees brought from Germany had died of breath disease in Mysore, Karnataka.
Tigers brought from South Africa had also died in the similar manner.
Anaconda from Srilanka could not survive for the reason of keeping the couple of the species in different situations.
A rhinoceros was shifted to Delhi zoological park due to its disease.
But when it comes to cow slaughter and prevention of cows from the same, all funds vanish to escape such situations.
Why we are buying more creatures when we are unable to protect the present animals? Lakhs of goats are martyred on the occasion of Id-ul-Zuha (Bakri Id) and if somebody dares to raise concerns, he is beaten-up by the allegedly strict Muslim religion followers, said to be establishing it as a matter of spiritual sanctity, while prophet himself is said to have denied any cruelty in any manner in his commandments.
We urge our Muslim fraternity to preclude such systems. It is not because it is associated with non-Hindu, but it is a matter of humanity towards speechless animals. And if any act of bali/human or animal-life sacrifice is raised at any course of time, associating it with religion, we shall strongly condemn that. We, at the same time discard peacock killing in Jain religion, where peacock feathers have great religious significance. The number of peacocks is decreasing in India. We need to save those by coming out of the so-called religious garb, which creates significance of peacock feathers as spiritual aspect.
As it is written in Hindu scripture :-
– Mahabharata, Anu.115/40, 49
One who buys flesh, does violence with money ;
One who eats, does violence by consumption thereof,
One who ties animal for the purpose, does violence by tying it;
In this way, the act of killing is performed thrice.
Persons who bring flesh, or cause to bring;
Or those who mutilate, buy, sell, cook or eat; they all are considered non-vegetarians.
– Mahabharata (5/55)
Whose flesh I eat here, will eat my flesh in heavens.
As per Muslim scriptures :-
– Prophet Mohammad
Fear Allah for the sake of speechless animals!
One has to answer before Khuda for killing of a bird and one who saves a bird and does not kill it showing pity for it, will be well-treated by Khuda at the doom’s day.
If one wants to reside in heaven forever, then he must treat others with compassion.
One who kills someone, kills oneself; one who eats animal flesh, is eating his own flesh/dead body. Killing of animals is killing of one’s own life and the revenge for this offence is not less than one’s death. Neither kill speechless animals, nor eat their flesh, lest you become slave of devil. If you consume vegetarian diet, you will get vitality and energy.
– Caliph Ali
Do not make one’s stomach a place of burial for animals.
– Khalil Gibran
I kill a squirrel, oh Lord, make me prey of lion!
Eid Mubarak! – Heartfelt wishes for the festival (with a sattvik alternative to cattle killing)
Sant Shri Asharamji Bapu (also referred to as “Bapuji”), our revered saint, has a huge followership of Muslims. A Muslim Qawwali singer troupe had sung a Sufi qawwali for Bapuji in His honor during one of His discourses. The words of the qawwali said: ‘Main jiska ho gaya hoon, use khud khayaal hai…’ which means that: “the Guru, to whom I have surrendered myself, takes care of me during every incident of life”.
Bapuji himself has many a times interpreted the stories of Rabia, a Sufi saint; Nizamuddin Auliah, his disciple’s affection for his guru and others Muslim Sufi saints as well. Bapuji’s Guruji – Sai Leelashah ji, originally Leelaram ji, made a Neem tree move from one place to another, in whoever’s territory it needed to be, and that resulted in the conflict between Muslims and Hindus getting resolved and Muslim community people accepting him as their peer (saint) by changing his name from Leelaram ji to Leelashah ji.
Such true saints always give lesson of humanity and not killing of anyone falsely resorting/manipulating to our false desire based notions carrying it from Hindu/Muslim scriptures.
We believe in eating vermicelli on Id-ul-fitr, which is made by our Muslim fraternity with holy feelings and plenty of emotions and humbly appeal them not to kill goats, sheep or cows mercilessly to appease their own wishes to eat speechless animals. Ibrahim was ready to sacrifice his son on the will of god, but at the pleasure of god he was allowed to sacrifice a ram. What happens in mythological stories cannot be done in practical life. If Lord Rama killed Ravana, (his enemy), that does not mean that all his followers have the right to kill their enemies; instead effigies of Ravana, Meghnada and Kumbhkarna are burnt on Dushhehra to recall victory of good over evil. Therefore, instead of killing goats or sheep, actually man made goats (toys) could be sacrificed or distributed amongst children or the poor. There are many other ways to commemorate Ibrahim and celebrating the day with joy instead of killing animal and eating its flesh. We could celebrate id-ul-zuha by giving life to one animal and contributing some money for it, that way we shall feel pride in doing such humanity and inspiring others and thus save animals and our planet in turn.
Let us resolve to not let others cut our nation in the name of religion, sects and castes. We cannot forget contributions of number of Muslim families that make moli/holy threads for Hindus, every year. The beautiful dresses of Thakur ji (Lord Krishna and other gods) which are sold throughout India are well woven or stitched by our Muslim fraternity, so how could we ignore them?
A minister’s dog can be found in a day but the conspirators to break our nation are still undiscovered. Those who are involved in “Love – Jihad” and other such missions are terrorists and not true Muslims. Bapuji himself had held his Satsang sessions in Pakistan and people of Muslim community heard the message of humanity peacefully there for hours.
Bapuji has always served the nation and worked for national integrity and reinforced to show compassion towards animals as well as mankind. A saint who never attempted to kill snake sitting around him despite its being so poisonous, can never be happy at the killing of numerous animals.
So let us make the festival of Eid as Happy Eid by giving life to the animals, not by killing of camel; though its being declared the state animal of Rajashthan, is no doubt commendable. But there is still way ahead to protect animals.
Bapuji says in his discourses that a goat is sacrificed but not a lion, as goat depicts weakness and the lion depicts strength. We should kill the goat of evils present in our minds instead of killing real goat, then the purpose of this festival be accomplished.
