People including children are awaiting for meat
People of different ages have come to the Patharghata city from far and wide, including villages, for a piece of meat.
The image is in the Patharghata municipality of Barguna. A long line of people of different ages was seen at the gate of the residence of former Patharghata MP Golam Sabur Tulu for sacrificial meat. Not only here, but in front of the houses of many rich people of the city, a crowd of these poor people with plastic bags has been seen.
Abdur Rahim, Shahjahan, waiting in front of former MP Golam Sabur Tulu’s residence, said they came here for meat as they do not have the capability to do Qurbani (sacrifice) and they will return to their family and feed them with these meats.
Shafiqul Islam Sohel, who is in charge of the residence, said meat would be distributed among the helpless on the day of sacrifice like every year. Two cows have already been sacrificed. Hopefully, more than 700 people will get meat this year.
Lecturer Moniruzzaman, a resident of Ward No. 8 of the municipality, said, “We are doing ancillary work by sacrificing cattle. We will distribute meat among the poor as per the rules before noon.”
“I have personally started spraying bleaching powder in the places where cattle have been sacrificed so that the environment is not polluted. I have also instructed those who have sacrificed to wash the place where the cattle are slaughtered,” said Rafiqul Islam Kakon, councilor of Ward No. 8 of Patharghata municipality.
