A sacrifice to please someone cannot be meaningful if we sacrifice what belongs to that someone. Animals, too, are creations of God and killing them to please the same God contradicts the meaning of sacrifice. Our scriptures always use the words preferable and avoidable while telling us about the various deeds of our lives. Animal sacrifice should be stopped as it is nothing but blind faith. No one progresses by sacrificing an innocent soul. Having said that, our society is driven by religious practices and it might take a long time to stop this practice.
