The Eid-ul-Adha is to be celebrated on 27th of October and the Muslims are into full-fledge preparations of carrying on their religious obligations. On the occasion, the Muslims perform their religious duties of performing animal sacrifice as an order from Almighty Allah. But, the episodes of animal seizing which are being carried out from last few years have put the Muslim folks into a lot of trouble. The police on one side are trying to interfere with the religious duties of Muslims by stopping them from sacrificing the animals, whereas, on other side, some Hindu outfits are also trying to create some or the other nuisance to trouble the Muslims on the occasion of Eid-ul-Adha.
