Streets Of Dhaka Turned Into Rivers Of Blood As Remains Of Animals Get Mixed With Water

Published on 13 September, 2016 at 8:37 pm By

Constant downpour caused waterlogging in many parts of Dhaka. The residents knew that their city corporation had failed in ensuring that the city’s drainage system functions properly.

But they were in for a sight they perhaps did not imagine on Eid-ul-Adha or Bakri Eid, when goats are slaughtered as sacrifice.

This is how the water on the streets of Dhaka looked like when the blood of the slaughtered animals mixed with it.

 

Even local Dhaka Tribune commented that the sight was “disturbing” and “gory”.

Even animal parts got mixed with the water and people were forced to wade through the ‘red rivers’.

The problem, as Dhaka Tribune points out, was that people either had no information of the government designated slaughter areas or simply ignored it.

“The two city corporations designated 1,000 spots – 496 in the north and 504 in the south – for slaughtering animals. However from around 7.30am in the morning, many people were seen slaughtering animals in the streets and their convenient places in several areas including Mohammadpur, Mirpur, Shyamoli, Uttara, Dhanmondi, Niketon,” reports DT.

The problem of waterlogging is not new to a city like Dhaka. Yet this time the blood and animal waste mixing in it indeed created an unsettling scene for the residents. The sight reminds us of the images from the Gadhimai Festival of Nepal in which thousands of animals were slaughtered.
