    Sacrifice has to be made of something precious to you. if islam says, you need to sacrifice what you have and give it to deprived people, why is then slaughtering of animals is taken place. why is it named as sacrifice. You have got no right on any creature other then yourself. then how can Slaughtering of innocent animals so brutally & cruelly, is treated as sacrifice. and also as everyone is aware, people celebrate this ID for having a delightful feast and has got nothing to do with the "sacrificial belief". Sacrifice something that can make someone happy & on which you have got right to sacrifice. Don't brutally kill innocent numb animals and boast about it unnecessarily. No religion including Islam has ever said that we human beings have got right over other creatures. Peace & Love is the only language any religion in the world speaks. For God Sake forbid them!!!
