Ayman Fareed, a resident of Saddlebrook Estate in Midrand, described the “violent” attempt to block the slaughter of sheep as “racist and anti-Islam”.
There are two Muslim families living at the upmarket estate in Kyalami.
Fareed’s trouble started around 6.20 am when the vehicles transporting the animals for the feast reached the estate. Minutes later he said 10 to 15 cars created a blockade at the entrance.
He said that the estate management then suggested they use another gate.
