Beef Ban in Maharashtra to Continue

A court in Mumbai has refused to stay the beef ban that came into effect in Maharashtra last month.

The Bombay High Court, responding to a petition challenging the ban, however, warned against “coercive steps for possession.”

The petition had said that the ban violates the fundamental rights of a person to have his choice of food.
The state government contended that expending hamburger is not a basic right.

A law that came into power on March 4 bans the butcher of calves and bullocks and permits just the utilization of wild oxen, which give second rate quality meat. Those discovered keeping or devouring hamburger can confront five years in jail and a fine of Rs. 10,000, if sentenced.

The boycott has been broadly reprimanded and there have been numerous challenges against it. Hamburger brokers claim they will lose their employments furthermore that the expense of other meat will shoot up.

Hamburger costs just about 33% of lamb and is a mainstream red meat decision. Bison meat is generally sent out and just eaten by 25 every penny of hamburger eaters.
