Jakarta KPKP Agency Secretary, Suharini Eliawati said, through the video, her side wants to show sacrificial animal slaughtering simulation starts from delivering sacrificial animals, slaughtering techniques, meat cutting, and meat distribution to the recipients (mustahik).
"This simulation video can educate people and guide the animal slaughterers and qurban committee. Not only how to slaughter it, but from delivering the sacrificial animals to the slaughterhouse, slaughtering techniques, meat cutting, and mechanism to distribute meat to the mustahik," she explained, Tuesday (7/7).
According to her, this video also informs the implementation of COVID-19 prevention protocols, including when distributing qurban meat to the mustahik because of the pandemic situation.
In distributing meat, people are not allowed to come to the slaughterhouse to take the meat. Because qurban committee will deliver the meat to the rightful recipients.
