Mumbai Police filed a complaint against the owner of a meat shop in Navi Mumbai after a post of a goat went viral on social media. The post shows, RAM (Name of Hindu deity) has been printed on the skin of the animal which was set to be sold ahead of the Eid al-Adha (Bakrid) festival. 

"In accordance with the said complaint, a case has been registered under CBD Belapur Police Station Crime Register No. 123/2024," the police posted on Saturday. 

"According to the preliminary information received, a goat with Ram's name written on it was kept for sale at Good Luck Mutton Shop in CBD Sector One, Navi Mumbai. A complaint was registered under relevant sections of the IPC and police have detained the shop owner," said an official.

Several Hindu organisations raised the issue on social media. One of users Hindutva Knight (@HPhobiaWatch), wrote, "This is outrageous. A goat sold by "Good Luck Mutton store" with Ram's name written on it. Goat will be slaughtered on Bakrid in the open to deliberately incite Hindu community. Requesting @Navimumpolice, @MumbaiPolice, to take strong action for deliberately causing law & order issue."
