Large-scale animal sacrifices marking the Islamic festival of Eid al-Adha combined with heavy rains have turned the streets of Bangladesh’s capital into rivers of blood.

Authorities in Dhaka designated several places where residents could slaughter animals, but heavy downpours on Tuesday meant few people could use those areas.

Muslims traditionally mark Eid al-Adha, or the Feast of Sacrifice, by slaughtering livestock. Usually a goat, sheep or a cow is killed to commemorate Prophet Ibrahim’s test of faith.

The meat of the sacrificed animals is shared among family and friends and poor people who cannot afford to sacrifice animals as a gesture of generosity to promote social harmony.

Dhaka residents used parking lots, garages and alleys to kill the animals and the blood flowed into the flooded streets, turning them into rivers of blood.

  1. Any celebration, Muslims cannot do without bloodshed, violence is written in their religion, killing is their noble profession,butchering is in their blood,mercy is not their culture,peace is not in their dictionary!!

  2. This is a complete misrepresentation of what happened in Bangladesh. I am an American Christian but I have Bangladeshi friends and I know what they do over there. For Ed they are supposed to sacrifice and animal but it’s always done the Muslim way which is exactly the same as the kosher way. The problem is that they had massive monsoon rains in the city and it flooded and washed all the blood that normally went into the sewers, into the streets. So please you guys are already extreme enough, let’s not misrepresent what is a normal and accepted custom around the world.
