It was decided that the deputy commissioners (DCs) of all the six districts would look after issues about the slaughter of sacrificial animals.
The DCs would also provide necessary assistance to non-profit organizations.
The representatives of the non-profit organizations appreciated the commissioner’s efforts and assured that they would carefully carry out the sacrifice of the animals during Eid ul Adha due to the pandemic situation.
The participants also agreed that arrangements for the sacrifice of animals needed to be done on a large scale this year due to the pandemic.
