Eid-ul-Adha, the holy Qurbani Eid of Muslims of Bangladesh is near. Muslims all around the world celebrate this holy occasion with pride and joy. On this special day, millions of farm animals are sacrificed all around the world including Bangladesh. Every year around 50 to 55 lakh farm animals are sacrificed alone in Bangladesh. In this season the farmers of this country feed their farm animals with special food to make them healthy and prepared. Amongst them, some dishonest farmers use growth hormones, steroids and other harmful chemical products on their farm animals for fattening to gain extra profit.
Actually, people buy the non-scientifically fattened farm animals knowingly or unknowingly and later sacrifice them and eat their meat in Qurbani. These hormones don’t go away from highly-infused animal meat even after cooking them in high heat. As a result the people who consume these meat fall sick very quickly and are forced to spend a lot of money in treatments. That is a prime reason why many people are worried about buying the wrong animal for sacrificial purpose. But if you know the difference and the right way to identify hormone-infused cows or other animals and how to pick the healthy ones properly, then you have nothing to worry about.
