Eid al-Adha in Pakistan

The Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha, or Feast of Sacrifice, was celebrated this past weekend around the world to commemorate what Muslims believe was Prophet Abraham's willingness to sacrifice his son Ismail. On the start of the holiday, Muslims slaughter sheep, cattle and other livestock, and give part of the meat to the poor.
