The local managements in Karachi and Islamabad have imposed Section 144 against illegally-formed cattle markets before Eid ul Adha this year.
According to the statement released by Commissioner of Karachi, Iftikhar Shalwani, a cattle market formed without prior permission from officials would be considered as illegal.
“The city administration won’t allow the buying and selling of sacrificial animals aside from the designated cattle markets,” said commissioner Karachi.
Likewise, in Islamabad, the local authorities have imposed a ban on buying and selling of animals before Eid ul Adha, within the town limits as section 144 enacted against illegal cattle markets within the federal capital.
Authorities have asked citizens to stay to the principles and regulations saying that the sacrificial animals are often bought only from designated cattle markets.
It has been reported that quite 700 cattle markets are going to be operational across Pakistan before Eid ul Adha this year amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
