This week, Muslims around the world are celebrating the religious festival Eid al-Adha, which celebrates the story of when the Jewish and Muslim prophet Abraham was asked to sacrifice his son Isaac to test his obedience. Cows, camels, goats and sheep are traditionally slaughtered on this day.
Pakistani Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad on Tuesday shared a video on Twitter of him buying animals which he intends to sacrifice with the caption in Urdu: "Buying camels for sacrifice in the cattle market.”
In the 30-second video, the minister can be seen bargaining with the dealers, after which he succeeds in buying three camels for sacrifice. According to the local media reports, three camels cost him nothing less than half a million Pakistani rupees ($3,106). 
Though many Gulf countries celebrated the Eid al-Adha on Tuesday, the South Asian region, especially India and Pakistan will observe the festival on Wednesday.
