LAHORE (92 News) – With few days left in Eidul Azha, the sale of sacrificial animals is gaining momentum as rush of buyers has been witnessed in cattle markets set up at designated places across the country.
According to a survey of different sale points, vendors are leaving a very narrow bargaining margin for buyers. They are acting as a cartel by keeping the price of low weight goats high.
The points set up at different localities across the country are catching thousands of customers on daily basis but only few succeeded to purchase.
A huge number of sacrificial animals are being brought for sale at different cattle markets.
Customers said that the prices are likely to come down in case a large number of animals arrive in the twin cities before Eid. Now, the trend of `Ijtamai Qurbani’ is also becoming popular in the twin cities.
Owing to the high prices of the animals, people, mostly belonging to middle class, preferred to get a share in a sacrificial animal rather than buying an animal solely for their families. "It is the fourth Eid that we are celebrating out of our village. In the past, we used to purchase sacrificial animals solely for our families but now it is difficult due to financial constraints," the elderly customer said.
Prices have rocketed by 30-50% ahead of the Eid festival, when Muslims sacrifice an animal to distribute meat to family, friends and the poor.
Traders in Bakra Mandi quoted as saying goats are going for a princely 35,000 rupees and a cow for about twice that. Downhearted shoppers are worried that relatively few will be able to afford the sacrifice this year.
