Some Islamic scholars have asked Muslims to desist cow & bull slaughter. Syed Hussain Madani, a scholar in Hyderabad said, “To maintain peace, Muslims should desist from sacrificing cows, bulls and bullocks during Eid al-Adha. If they do so, it will keep the majority Hindu community happy, help foster communal harmony in the society and send a good message about Islam and its tenets of peace and love to non-Muslims.”
