Ever since I could remember, I have always liked Hari Raya Haji for one reason – I get to see cows being sacrificed. I mean, I’m still a guy and a very mobid one to that, it’s just something you do not pass over no matter what the reason may be. Heck, the smell of offal in the air is still enough to get me all excited.
Of course, after a while I remembered that some of my friends are in fact Buddhists and Hindu practioners and the fact that you’re out in the open sacrificing cows isn’t exactly the best thing to be showing in front of people who abhor violence or find the cow sacred.
So I would like to take this time to sort off…apologise to my Buddhist and Hindu friends for the fact that we slaughter many many cows in the open on this day. I know, we’re a multi-cultural society, it happens every year and all that jazz, but it doesn’t mean I can’t say sorry for having traditions which goes against your ideals and belief. It’s just a decent thing to do anyway.
So again. Sorry for the cow bit. I’ll make it up to you guys one way or another. What about goats? Are goats ok then?
