Calcutta High Court refuses to stay goat slaughter for Kali Puja but agrees to examine larger issue of animal sacrifice

The advocate representing the PIL petitioner relied upon the judgments of the Himachal Pradesh High Court and the Tripura High Court to contend that animal sacrifice in the name of God is illegal and not an essential practice of religion. 

“The two judgments are challenged in the Supreme Court and are pending adjudication. But it must be noted that the Supreme Court hasn’t passed any stay order yet,” the counsel underscored. 

He further pointed out that the Kerala government had come up with a law against the sacrifice of animals or birds within temple premises. 

“A challenge to the said enactment failed in the Kerala High Court. They went upto the Supreme Court and the said appeal is still pending with no stay orders against the law,” the advocate submitted.
