In Pakistan alone this week, 5 million sheep and 1 million cows were slaughtered ahead of Eid al-Adha. Following this the volunteers of the JuD launched a massive drive to collect the hide of the slaughtered animals as is being done every year.

This money is pocketed directly by the JuD and reports that have emerged from Pakistan would suggest that the money is pumped into the activities of the Lashkar-e-Tayiba which is a designated terrorist outfit.
