Twitter reacts to Gharidah Farooqi’s remarks about animal sacrifice on Eidul al-Adha

KARACHI – Pakistan's celebrated journalist and primetime host Gharidah Farooqi Thursday irked netizens after she shared a controversial tweet about the sacrifice of animals on Eid al-Adha.

As the country is celebrating the ‘Festival of Sacrifice’, with religious zeal and fervor, the G for Garida anchor like all celebrities shared a tweet but her post draws huge backlash and is currently trending on Twitter.

Gharida in her post wrote, “Spare an animal’s life if you can. Embrace the philosophy behind the incident and the divine message, in your life Folded hands. This day is not to mark meat eating”.

She further added “Love animals. Let them live”.

Soon after the tweet of the Pakistani journo, a large number of social media users re-tweeted her post and asked her to quit eating fast food as the big food chains also slaughter flocks of animals each day.

As some slammed her for eating fast food and steaks in the past, others roasted her by sharing her old pictures in which the senior journalist can be seen enjoying steaks, Biryani, and Nihari. Netizens also lambasted her for using leather purses and shoes which are also made from the skins of various animals.
