Authorities in Karachi detained a trader on Saturday on allegations of selling sacrificial goats with plastic teeth in the Gulberg Chowrangi area, as reported by ARY News. A video circulating on social media showed a customer removing what seemed to be plastic teeth from one of the goats, prompting swift action from law enforcement.

The trader, who is from Hyderabad and had come to Karachi to sell animals for Eidul Adha, admitted during police questioning that he was involved in the sale. Police also seized seven additional goats as part of their investigation, according to ARY News.

“The video circulating on social media provided us with vital information about the sale of goats with artificial teeth, leading to the trader’s arrest,” clarified a police official.

Eidul Adha, scheduled for June 17 after the Zil Hajj moon sighting on June 7, is an important religious festival where Muslims commemorate Prophet Ibrahim’s obedience to God by sacrificing animals. The meat from these sacrifices is traditionally shared with family and those in need.

The tradition, rooted in the story of Prophet Ibrahimi, involves sacrificing animals over three days during Eid celebrations.

Investigations into the case are ongoing as authorities continue to delve into the matter, ARY News reported.
