Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan created controversy when he said that “slaughtering of ‘Bakra’ does not mean Qurbani, the traditional style of sacrifice by Muslims.”
Khan spoke on the sidelines of the promotion of his upcoming flick ‘Madari’ in Jaipur.
“The meaning of Qurbani is to sacrifice something which is close to you instead of any goat or sheep which you just buy to sacrifice. Before sacrificing we should share a bond with that thing otherwise just killing of an animal will not serve the purpose. Nowadays we have lost the relevance behind such religious activities and perform these rituals without knowing the meaning behind them,” Irrfan told Deccan Herald.
