Re: Do a zabihat in Ahmedabad this Eid

No Bukhari bhai.
Last year the prices were really high. This usually happens every year as the Eid days are near. So last year the jamaat animals turned out cheaper .I was there and did my zabihat there.The animals were also good. This year we still do not know the prices.
