Oct 10th, 2017: Blood in the Streets

There's blood in the streets, it's up to my ankle
Rain came
Blood in the streets, it's up to my knee
Rain came
Blood in the streets in the town of Dhaka
Rain came
Blood on the rise, and it's flowing free



To thank Allah for sparing Ibrahim’s child from death, every year during Eid al-Adha, Muslim families ritually sacrifice goats, cows, and water buffaloes in staggering numbers. The meat from the sacrificed animal is then divided into three parts. According to custom, one part is given to the poor and the needy; another part is given to friends, relatives and neighbors; and the remaining part is retained by the family.



As per the BBC, nearly 100,000 livestock were sacrificed in Dhaka alone last year. Authorities set up hundreds of designated sacrifice spots in the run-up to the festival to make it easier to clean away blood and animal carcasses, but most residents ignored the special areas and made sacrifices on the streets or in their garages. A heavy downpour then flooded the streets, which is a common occurrence in Dhaka, creating these nightmarish scenes.
