Let’s learn from this Kerala station

New iPhone twins are here

Meat Ban
No meat for Maharashtra

After beef, Maharashtra government has yet again left the non-vegetarians in an uproar by banning meat for the period of the Jain festival of Paryushan. Actually the BMC already has a ban on the killing of animals on 2 days during Paryushan since 1964. But this new act of banning the sale for 7 days is aganst secularims. The funny thing is the Jain community would not ask only for a meat ban but allow the sale of fish and chicken. This entire thing is nothing but a political gimmick, sparking resentment towards the community unneccessarily.
