יִשְׂרָאֵל שֶׁשָּׁחַט בֶּהֱמַת חֲבֵרוֹ לַעֲבוֹדַת כּוֹכָבִים, לֹא אֲסָרָהּ, שֶׁוַּדַּאי לֹא כִּוֵּן אֶלָּא לְצַעֲרוֹ, וְאִם יֵשׁ לוֹ שֻׁתָּפוּת בָּהּ, יֵשׁ אוֹמְרִים שֶׁאוֹסֵר גַּם חֵלֶק חֲבֵרוֹ, וְיֵשׁ אוֹמְרִים דְּגַם בָּזֶה אֵינוֹ מְכַוֵּן אֶלָּא לְצַעֵר שֻׁתָּפוֹ וְלֹא לֶאֱסֹר

If a Jew slaughters an animal belonging to his friend (fellow Jew) for the sake of worshiping Idols, it is not forbidden, because certainly his intentions are only to cause him distress (and not to actually worship idols).  However, if he has a share in it, some say that also his friend’s share is also forbidden, while others say that this is also directed to only cause distress to his colleague, and then it is not forbidden.
