One tonne Brahman cattle sacrificed for Aidiladha


GEORGE TOWN: Masjid Jamek Shaik Eusof at Jalan Datuk Keramat drew much attention today as a one tonne Brahman cow was slaughtered as part of the Aidiladha sacrificial ritual. Mosque chairman Ustaz Yusof Yaacob said Rezuwan Mazlan, a member of the local community, had donated the cattle which cost RM15,000. “The five-year-old cow was imported from Thailand as a calf. A total of nine regular cows and 19 goats were also slaughtered at the mosque (compound),” Yusof told reporters. – BERNAMA © New Straits Times Press (M) Bhd
