Fact check: People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals organization's claim about Eid al-Fitr


The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals ( PETA)  shared a video that went viral, while the content of the video might be sensitive, it also contained the below wrong claim:

Claim 1:

“Animals don’t need to die for muslim to celebrate Eid al-Fitr. ”

Fact Check 1: True, but misleading.

It’s known that Muslims don’t celebrate Eid al-Fitr  that comes after Ramadan by killing any animal, the practice of sacrificing animals happens in Eid-al-Adha. The sacrificed animals, called aḍḥiya (Arabicأضحية‎), known also by the Perso-Arabic term qurbāni, have to meet certain age and quality standards or else the animal is considered an unacceptable sacrifice.

The official website of PETA mentioned a claim in an article by saying ” This Eid al-Adha, break your fast with tasty vegan dishes like this Mock Lamb Shammi Kebab”. Eid-al-Adha does not come after any fasting to be break.
