Srinagar, September 23: As the emotions run high over the hot topic of bovine slaughter, Separatist Hardliner, Syed Ali Shah Geelani appealed to the masses to exercise restraint to not hurt the sentiments of the minorities in the state.
After the beef ban was reforced, several groups in Kashmir upped the slaughter of cows as protest to the century old law. The groups have maintained that ‘no law of the land can overrule the laws set in place by Islam’.
“I appeal to the pro-freedom people that they should sacrifice animal according to the religious laws and the religious mood. However, there should be no attempt to use this sacred work for provocation or to hurt the sentiments of others,” Syed Ali Geelani.
