“Eid al Adha is all about the spirit of sacrifice,“ writes Your Shot photographer Neelima Azad. “Sacrificial meat, according to the Islamic law, has to be divided into three parts: One-third of the share is given to the poor, another third is given to relatives, friends and neighbours, and the remaining third is retained by the family. These poor goats unaware of the fate are being unloaded from the truck towards the market place for auction and sale and then later taken to the abattoir for slaughter.“
