Punjab Govt Launches Its First Online Portal for Eid Animals

The Punjab government has introduced its first official online portal, allowing citizens to purchase sacrificial animals from the comfort of their homes.

Ahead of Eid-ul-Adha, this platform facilitates online purchases of sacrificial animals, embracing the modern trend of leveraging technology for convenience.

The portal provides detailed listings of animals, complete with images, age, weight, species, breed, price, and other pertinent details.

Officials from the Punjab Cattle Market Management have assured the security of transactions on the portal, which requires ID card numbers from both buyers and sellers.

According to the MET office, if the month of Zilqad in Pakistan spans 29 days, the onset of Zilhajj will occur on June 8, marking the celebration of Eid-ul-Adha 2024 on June 17. Alternatively, if Zilqad extends to 30 days, Zilhajj will commence on June 9, with Eid-ul-Adha following on June 18.

The official announcement in Pakistan will be made by the Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee after the sighting of the moon of Zilhajj 1455.

Eid-ul-Adha, also known as the Feast of Sacrifice, is one of the two Eid festivals observed by Muslims to honor Prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son as an act of devotion to God.

Traditionally, the occasion is marked by the ritual slaughter of animals, with the meat distributed among family members and the less fortunate.

In commemoration of Prophet Ibrahim’s tradition, the faithful partake in the ritual sacrifice of animals throughout the three days of Eid.
