Outrage Erupts Over Viral Video of Goat with ‘RAM’ Scribbled on Its Sides Ahead of Bakrid

A video showing a white goat with the word ‘RAM’ scribbled on its sides has gone viral on the internet. This has led to protests by several Hindu organizations with demands to arrest the culprits. It was a clear attempt to incite communal tensions during Bakrid. The video also shows some members of Hindu organizations at the meat shop questioning the owner about the same. Soon, cops arrived at the scene and could be seen managing the situation.

Taking cognizance of the viral video, the Navi Mumbai Police have filed a complaint against the owner of a meat shop. According to a report by a media house, the goat, marked with the Hindu deity’s name in yellow, was set to be sold ahead of the Eid al-Adha (Bakra Eid) festival.

“Viral Video of Goat with ‘RAM’ Scribbled Sparks Outrage

The incident and the video have caused widespread outrage on social media, and several Hindu organizations have voiced their concerns.

One such user named Hindutva Knight expressed his anger on X, saying:

“This is outrageous. A goat sold by ‘Good Luck Mutton Store’ with Ram’s name written on it. Goats will be slaughtered on Bakrid in the open to deliberately incite the Hindu community. Requesting @Navimumpolice, @MumbaiPolice, to take strong action for deliberately causing a law & order issue.”

The police have registered a case under CBD Belapur Police Station Crime Register No. 123/2024.

A police official stated to a media house:

“Preliminary information indicates that a goat with Ram’s name written on it was kept for sale at Good Luck Mutton Shop in CBD Sector One, Navi Mumbai. A complaint was registered under relevant sections of the IPC, and the shop owner has been detained.”

The police also added that the case has been registered against three individuals: Mohammad Shafi Shaikh, Sajid Shafi Shaikh, and Kuyyam. The goat was brought to be sold for Bakrid for the traditional sacrifice. Police have also written to the municipal authorities to cancel the license of the shop, which has since been sealed by the police.

Often, attempts are made by mischievous elements to create communal tensions during the religious festivals of both communities. However, this time, timely police action prevented any such flare-up. Last year, a big uproar was caused when a goat was kept in a flat inside a society, probably for sacrifice. People of the society objected, saying that the goat could not be sacrificed on the society premises since the rules of the society prohibit bringing any animal into the premises.
