PESHAWAR: The district administration of Peshawar has imposed a ban on slaughtering animals on the roadside and the collection of hides fearing that heaps of hides may be used by terrorists to conceal explosives.

A notification was issued on Tuesday stating that the deputy commissioner’s office had learnt about some people and organisations asking for hides using loudspeakers during Ediul Azha. In some cases, citizens are even harassed to collect the hides of sacrificed animals.

‘25% of hides and skins are wasted every year’

The notification, a copy of which is available with Daily Sun News Sun News, further read that these hides were also likely to be used by terrorists who could conceal explosives beneath them.

It added that the practice of slaughtering animals on the roadside was also against the code of cleanliness.

“Owing to the above cited reasons, the deputy commissioner has imposed a ban on the collection of animal hides, announcement request for animal hides collection through loudspeakers, slaughtering animals on roadside, coercing/harassing people on collection of hides and dumping of skins in the city,” the notification read.

Section 144: Ban imposed on collecting hides 

The document further added that slaughtering animals on the roadside also causes severe inconvenience to pedestrians, could lead to breach of security in the area and spread diseases.

Anyone found violated the ban would be dealt with under Section 188 of Pakistan Penal Code (PPC).

The ban will remain enforced for 30 days.

A similar ban was put in place last year for Eidul Azha as well.
