Muslim Twitter Hit Back at PETA’s “Irresponsible” Eid Tweet

by in Lifestyle on 5th June, 2019

Animal rights organisation PETA have come under fire for their Eid tweet which saw them release a video of an animal being dragged along by a car. 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 holiday.”

Many commented that perhaps PETA have got the wrong Eid and more importantly pointing out that the video is not in line with Islamic practices when it come to slaughtering meat.

Miqdaad Versi, media spokes person for Muslim Council of Britain, called the tweet “awful and irresponsible” and went on to tweet, “other than clearly getting the Eid wrong (I assume they would have meant Eid al-Adha), the choice to insinuate this is how Muslims slaughter animals and the choice to put this out on Eid day, is appalling. Be better.”
