As a mark of respect for Hindu sentiments, leading Islamic seminary Darul Uloom Deoband has asked Muslims to avoid cow slaughter on the occasion of ID-ul-Azha on Friday.

Muslims should avoid cow slaughter as a mark of respect for Hindu sentiments, says a booklet brought out by the seminary, in which several guidelines for "qurbani" (sacrifice) during Bakrid have been underlined.

The booklet explains the concept of qurbani and enlists directions for offering of the sacrifice.
