The United Muslim Forum (UMF), an umbrella organization of various Muslim organizations in Telangana, urged the Muslim community to refrain from sacrificing cows and respect the sentiments of other communities. It urged them to instead sacrifice lambs, sheep and other animals permissible for sacrifice under the Indian law.

At a press conference organized here on Wednesday, the UMF said the government should ensure that people get healthy sacrificial animal in the market. “It is advisable to avoid sacrificing or transporting cows when it is drawing opposition on religious grounds and is violation of the law of the land.

Instead, the other alternatives should be explored to avoid confrontation with people or the law,” the forum members felt. They urged the State government to control the ‘Gau Raksha’ groups who were targeting cattle traders in the country. The UMF asked the State government to take all precautionary measures to prevent instances of communal trouble before the Eid –ul- Adha.

In view of the rise in incidents of mob lynching in the name of cattle slaughter, they felt that stringent laws should be enacted to protect the life and property of the citizens.

The forum also appealed to the State government to protect historical religious monuments including Mecca Masjid, Shahi Masjid Bagh–e-Aam and Wakf properties.

It also demanded the government fill up the vacant posts in various minority institutions and issue orders for appointment of personnel of various ranks in TS Wakf Board.
