Ritual Caused Childhood Trauma -

A Florida woman has blocked the Eide tradition of slaughtering lambs and goats which was to have taken place in an open field in the middle of her densely populated city of Sunrise.

"There are several Pakistani families in North America who honour Eid-ul-Azha by donating money, clothing and other forms of charity to the needy because I’m sure there would be major problems if they began sacrificing goats outside their condominiums and suburban homes."
