Price of sacrificial animals on the rise in Afghanistan upon arrival of Eid-ul-Adha

cowWith the religious festival of sacrificing animals on Eid-ul-Adha approaching fast, cattle dealers have bumped up the prices of sacrificial animals by an average of 40% compared to their last year’s rates.

Cattle dealers have cited increased transportation and animal food costs as the main reasons behind the prices surge of the animals.

According to Pajhwok Afghan News (PAN), cattle dealers said they sold sacrificial animals on high prices compared to the past because of the illegal money they paid while transporting animals to the country.

Each year on the occasion of Eid-ul-Adha a large number of sacrificial animals are imported from Pakistan and Tajikistan and dispatched to various parts of the country.

Meanwhile, the government has rejected the cattle dealers’ accusation that illegal money was being taken from cattle merchants.
