Speedy Recovery: 30 goats sacrificed for Imran Khan

Published: May 10, 2013

FAISALABAD: Thirty goats were sacrificed on Thursday by a PTI member for the early recovery of PTI chairman Imran Khan. Khan was injured a few days ago in a fall minutes before he was about to address a rally in Lahore. The charity was given by PTI Youth Wing vice president Shehzad Younus Sheikh. He also organised a Quran khwani to pray for Khan. Talking to The Express Tribune, Sheikh said he believed that incident was preplanned and not just a coincidence. “Khan’s survival is a miracle,” he said.

    Sacrificing goats in 2013 tells it all.

    Sounds like something you would hear about from the Greco-Roman world a couple thousand years ago.

    u definately dont have the guts to come out on the roads and sacrifice your own life

    My, My, Big Words.

    By the way the lives being ‘sacrificed’ on the roads are of PPP,ANP.MQM supporters. No PTI supporters are losing their lives. The worst that happened to them was that some became ‘kharab in garmi’ and others got wet in the rains.

    “sacrificing goats is sadqa…. calling it greco roman world… im sorry but it seems u dont beleive in relegion anymore…. i feel sorry for such a nation !! “


    Thirty poor souls lost their souls on the altar of a religious horde. Religion, camouflaged even as a knife, should not be pushed down any one’s throat.

    It depends on the level of your desperation. People have done worse ‘sacrifices’ for smaller things than this.

    Well so many poor people who never taste meat throughout the year got some meat…now offcourse this is “BACKWARD THINKING”. Anything and everything related to GOD is “BACKWARD”. GO Secularism. First push Religion as a secondary thing . Now try to push GOD aswell. Maybe the people who are mocking this action ( the people with the earlier comments) could tell me what are they doing in 2013? Except for blogging that is. Please tell me if your names are amongst the best thinkers or engineers of the present age?

    We Muslims are backward but you’re not right? So what are you?

    Guys –
    In the end, its poor people being given food from the sacrifice. Why do liberals like to create drama out of everything?

    P.S. To liberals here: how many of you commenting here never had a piece of meat? Either become a vegetarian or better yet a vegan, or stop being self-righteous.

    Is everyone here a vegetarian or something? Don’t we all sacrifice goats on Eid?

    Oh and btw. the meat is distributed to the poor in case of sadaqa. Its not like they just sacrificed human as back in the roman days.
