ISLAMABAD - As only one-day left in Eid-ul-Azha, sale of instruments used for slaughtering, cutting and cooking meat is witnessing a sharp increase. People are all set to celebrate Eid on November 28 (Saturday), as sacrificing animals on the 10th, 11th and 12th Zilhaj is the fulfillment of 'Sunnat-i-Ibrahimi. Every year, with the advent of Eid-ul-Azha, a number of stalls are established in every locality to sell butchery tools, whereas street vendors also offer their services to sharpen the rusted tools of butchery. The occasion also provides opportunity of good business to vendors who roam around on bicycles to sell a variety of knives and other related instruments, which are displayed on a board. Although both of Eid-ul-Fitr and Eid-ul-Azha hold special significance for the Muslims, yet intersecting the requirements to celebrate both occasions is quite different from each other. Contrary to Eid-ul-Fitr, on this occasion people take interest in buying tools and material used for scarifying the animals. Stall displaying knives, meat cleaver and Bar-B-Q instruments including Angeethi (hand-made oven) and steel bars are a common feature of Eid-ul-Azha. These are exceptional days for us, as we do sufficient business, much more than other times throughout the year, commented Noman a stallholder while talking to TheNation. He said during first two days of Eid catching a butcher was a difficult task, so people preferred to sacrifice animals themselves to avoid inconvenience. People buy the required tools, while many get their old knives and choppers sharpened. It is worth-mentioning here that Purana Qila and Banni areas in Rawalpindi are considered as main markets for these instruments where such tools are easily available at wholesale rate. The street vendors and stallholder are minting money nowadays by selling the butchery tools on almost double price.
