The year 2020 keeps on giving us harsh realizations as each month passes by. From the ongoing pandemic, to plane crashes and what not. It seems the whole year 2020 is a level game of Jumanji in real-life. Just two days back, Pakistani’s celebrated Bakra Eid 2020. However, the tragic incident of how a sacrificial cow fell from the crane while being lifted down will always haunt us.
Every year many people tend to keep their sacrificial animals at homes and in order to stay safe from any misfortune or mishap, some go out of the way by keeping their animals on the rooftop. It is a common practice in Pakistan and it does sound tad bit risky when it comes to lifting these animals up and then down.
Hence, this is why many people are disturbed by watching the cow fall from such a height as it was lifted down. However, at the same time, some people are questioning the family to whom the cow belonged to.
The cow that fell from the crane belonged to the family for 2 years
According to sources, this sacrificial animal was owned by a family for almost two years in Surjani Town 5D. It had been on the rooftop during this time period.
So why did the family think of taking this risk, knowing how difficult it might be for them. In addition, why didn’t they plan to sacrifice the animal right over there, where the cow was residing for so long.
It saddens us to see such horrifying incidents taking place and how people are still not opening their eyes.
Secondly, the question that is arising in our minds is how people can be so negligent towards animals. Why is it so that every time such horrifying incidents occur, we need a revelation of sorts from either animal safety NGOs, etc. to educate us on how animal care even if stray is important especially in Pakistan and for street animals particularly.
It seems people are becoming materialistic, cruel day by day and then they question why such a critical illness has broken or why is Allah punishing them!

Just a few days before Bakra Eid, we saw negligence of a family that left their sacrificial goat outside, knowing their locality is having stray dog attacks. If you look into it, there are a hundred stories that can fit in here. Yet we stay completely indifferent to them, not caring about the repercussions regardless.
In the end, all we can do is pray to Allah for his mercy and a lot of forgiveness. In addition, we also hope that this family, in fact, many others refrain from keeping their sacrificial animals on rooftops; so that this crane lifting practice can finally come to an end in Pakistan.
