Camels in demand on Eid in Kashmir

SRINAGAR: Ahead of Eid-Ul-Adha, camels have once again been put on sale in Kashmir.

Mushtaq Ahmad from Srigufwara in Anantnag said that he brought a camel for Rs 1.3 lakh from Rajasthan. According to him, it was his dream to sacrifice a camel on Eid and this year his dream has come true.

Many dealers said that though the sacrifice of camels in Kashmir is very rare, the trend is increasing and more people are opting for camels instead of sheep and goats. Ghulam Rasool, a butcher from south Kashmir said that he brought two camels a few days ago and has already sold one.

“If demand will increase, I will bring more camels,” he said He said that camel meat is little less than that of sheep and goat. Camels, popularly known as the ship of desert, for the past few years have become regular attractions ahead of Eid-al-Adha in Kashmir—(KNO)
