Quotes

...the annual sacrifice, senior Tonk royal family member Nawab Hamid Ali Khan told the Press Trust of India had not felt pressure to end the practice. "The 150-year-old tradition ends now to save the animal and to maintain peace and communal harmony in the Tonk district" Hamid said. A male goat would be sacrificed instead
she states. The AWBI authorised slaughterhouse inspector states, "I have observed that police is extremely hesitant and afraid to even venture into these illegal slaughterhouses. Protection is given to a particular community to conduct slaughter and any objection raised by neighbours under sections 268, 269, 277, 278, 295A or 429 are suppressed deliberately. The same police department has been able to curb illegal animal sacrifice in temples across Uttarakhand, but failed to curb illegal slaughter on Eid. The most shocking observation is that of fear of minority outrage within the home department due to which they are allowed to flout the law."
Over the next year, returns from some locations could cross 10 per cent. "If the places fall along some industrial corridor or smart city, the prices will pick up due to speculative reasons" says Dutt of Cushman & Wakefield
"We found that in almost all districts of Rajasthan, it has been raining well, and as far as Jaipur is concerned, I am very pleased to see that Jal Mahal is quite filled with water. If a little bit of promotion or hindsight is given by the Government of India, we can experience an unimaginable boom. Well, just for example, if an evening activity could be created looking at a lake filled with water, some evening activity or a boat ride kind of thing, we are giving an opportunity to the client to come out of the hotel at that time also" said tourist guide, Shailendra Upadhyay
