Last Updated on July 16, 2021 at 9:48 pm

The Animal and Sheep Husbandry Department today clarified that the Jammu and Kashmir government has not issued any ban order on slaughtering of animals in accordance with rules.

Pertinently, Animal Welfare Board of India every year issues advisory regarding animal slaughtering to be carried out while following laws and rules.  The same advisory has been issued this year also and has been forwarded to the concerned authorities.

There were reports on social media doing rounds claiming that the J&K government has banned animal slaughter ahead of Eid al-Adha.
