New Delhi, www.impar.in
All municipal permissions must be obtained and rules complied for conducting Qurbani. Cooperation and coordination must
also be done with the local police.
Let’s not sacrifice the cleanliness of our area. In no case, the waste materials should litter pavements, roads, or sewers.
Taking care of others is an important ingredient of religion don't tie or feed the animal in open. Respecting others’ religious
sentiments must be an important part of our beliefs.
Banned animals are not permitted for sacrifice. No Qurbani of cows and camels. As per the guidelines, the sacrifice of permitted
cattle has only been allowed and in the designated places.
No cruelties to animals in transport or marketplace. As per government guidelines, unnecessary suffering to the animal during
transport shall be guilty of an offense.
In no case the waste materials should litter on pavements, roads or in sewer. Taking care of others is an important ingredient of
religion don't tie or feed the animal in open.
Slaughter of the animal should be done at a well-designated place and at the hands of a person skilled in this trade. There are
buyers or claimants for almost every part of the animal, so nothing is left over for our disposal.
Due to monsoon season maintaining extra hygiene is most important for own health. Don't provide breeding grounds to
mosquitoes for spread of various diseases.
Avoid filming and sharing videos of the act of Qurbani on social media platforms, like WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.
IMPAR District Councils and other community organisations must engage with municipal corporations to make proper
arrangements for cleaning mohallas for the ensuing three days.
Do the Qurbani in a slaughterhouse, not inside your house or outside your door, and also make sure that the spill does not pass
through onto the street. Dispose of the waste properly.
Do not add blood/guts to the compost bin/pit/pile, as this will attract pests of all kinds. The entrails can be buried deep enough
so that scavengers don’t dig them up. They will decompose over time.
In addition to this, the awareness drives with IMPAR guidelines are to be taken up to sensitise the community at local levels. After the Qurbani period, sanitation drives must again be taken up.
IMPAR is regularly running sanitisation and sanitation drives and awareness campaigns. We sincerely request all the
community organisations to organise the same for a better living environment and a fitter perception about Muslims.
Following these simple steps of common sense and courtesy can make the difference between a Qurbani who truly helps others
rather than one who becomes a hindrance or cause of suffering. The above are general guidelines. If changes or modificationsThe above are general guidelines. If changes or modifications
become necessary then common sense and a spirit of goodwill should apply.
As we know Eid ul Azha is around the corner. Islam emphasises much on sanitation and cleanliness, peace, helping
people and respecting their sentiments. Faithful do Qurbani of animals, observing the tradition of Prophet Ibrahim, which continues for three days of Eid. Let’s celebrate this festival of sacrifice with the true spirit. If we want our
Qurbani to be meaningful, we need to make sure it’s done right way. The purpose of Qurbani is not only to sacrifice an
animal as per the tradition, but committing oneself to the acts of charity and about giving up something you hold dear
in devotion to God. IMPAR has already issued guidelines for celebrating the festival with joy and peace and at the same
time with proper tidiness while conducting Qurbani to ensure that it does not cause any inconvenience to anyone:
