India is not a country just for Hindus. The cow is considered sacred animal just in the Hindu community and n

There are many Hindus as well who are not very much God fearing and do eat beef. So, this ban is a first h

Now, the closer version of this ban; just the beef from Indian cow and bull are banned, however the restauran

Precisely, we have paved way for some more serious issues and concerns with this ban on the beef. It is in no
such a ban in secular and democratic state.

No, It's not justified. It hurts the concept of "Unity in Diversity". In India we are meant to have freedom of speec

RE: Banning Beef Is it justified? dhillon (03-7-2015)

Yes banning beef is well justified...dnt consider it as a part of hindus religious aspect buf think on humanitaria

famous for hvng love n kindness feeling worldwide n we shud maintain our dis unique quality..dere r other s

supplement for proteins or vitamins a person get frm h ng nonveg stuff...n if dere z a point of unempmoyment d

of earning ever in india..people made it their profession by theif own choices..dere r manh other areas for poor

whr govt provide subsidies too...n if export point is raised den i would like to tell dat india z a rich country w

unique indian product dat can be exported...if a country cant get ovr their deficit by exporting those den dis si

raise billions....n democracy,freedom of choice does not imply dat u r being given d right to kill other species n

dis is d scene then killing of humans shud oso b made legal becoz in sm places eating human flesh is oso

should respect every other creature present on earth..birth n killing shud b givn in godz hand...n for that

chicken,mutton,fish etc should b banned for eating purposes..n if medicine purpose is taken here den india d

ayurvedic n homeopathic treatments.....so in my view point killing of any animl for human hunger or fo
selfishness and this ban should b made compulsry nationwide.

cow is a sacred animal in hindu religion from the ancient time.even indira gandhi won the election in the name

prohbitted in hindu religion as pig meat is prohbitted in islam.if we would not save save cow then who will save

be banned all over the india.there is other source of meat such as pig(which provides more calory than cow),g

god made both u and animal. so u have no right to kill any animal in the name of human right..
RE: Banning Beef Is it justified? shubh (03-8-2015)

I personally think that issue should be that "Is it justified that beef is banned in Maharashtra but u can

chicken,goat,fish".I won't say that beef should be banned or not but i would say that do not be partial whateve
are banning Beef but not other meat than u r being partial.
RE: Banning Beef Is it justified? rahul c m (03-8-2015)

pig meat is banned for muslims...but in india it is noticable that it is banned only for a particular religious grou

or for the whole country...and i hav to say that this case of ban on cow slaughter for hindus is juz another ca
muslims....but maharashtra state has banned it for all its people including not only hindus but also

minorities.....so my friends juz think...is this secularism or is this democratism for a country which has
democrartic and secular ideas???
RE: Banning Beef Is it justified? sreshtha saha (03-9-2015)

Banning beef for the sake of religion is not justified.There are many hindus who eat beef,then where are

sentiments.When a girl is brutally raped then where are the religious sentiments,at that moment the girl is
goddess saraswati or lakshmi ,she becomes a characterless human being.

India is a democratic country, banning beef may hurt the feeling of non vegetarian people. cow is not the onl

Banning beef enactment has now taken form of somewhat controversy. I personally feel that not only slaught

speechless animals . As far as unemployment of the particular group is concerned, it is ironical that natures

will have to depend on these mute creatures for their earnings.Using the animals for the resources like milk ,w

When we talk about Democracy, then it is obvious that one should have own choices of food what he/sh
