Muslims Hit Back At PETA For Comparing Eid To Animal Cruelty

Animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) came under fire Thursday for posting a malicious and inaccurate video on Twitter, which compared Eid-ul-Fitr to animal cruelty.

The video shows a slaughtered goat being dragged along by a car, while its baby runs behind it helplessly. The video was accompanied with the tweet “This is heartbreaking Animals don’t need to die for you to celebrate Eid al-Fitr. Have a #vegan holiday.”

The tweet, which was posted by PETA’s international handle, was retweeted by PETA India.

Muslim Twitterati slammed the misleading post and asked the group to remove it, saying it legitimizes anti-Islamic hatred at a time when Muslims and their places of worship are under pressure from daily attacks.

Many pointed out the absolute insensitivity and lack of research behind the tweet and said the video goes against the Islamic practices when it comes to slaughtering meat.
