You Cannot Eat a Beef Burger in Kashmir, India; Thanks to the Hindu Mullahs


New price for a good beef burger: Ten years in prison.  This is precisely the reason why we support secularism in every country of the world

‘Why can’t you respect our religious values?’: Kashmiris react to news of beef ban The reaction was quick and critical. Soon as news went around that the Jammu and Kashmir High Court had passed an order directing the enforcement of a 153-year-old ban on beef in the Muslim-majority state, people and separatists poured out their anger in the Valley, calling it a breach of their rights.

On Wednesday, while hearing a public interest litigation, a two-member division bench of the high court had directed the police to ensure strict compliance of a law on beef. The litigation, filed by an advocate, Parimoksh Seth, submitted that consumption of beef affects religious sentiments of a section of the society.

“The Director General of Police…is directed to ensure that appropriate directions are issued to all the SSPs/SPs, SHOs of various police districts so that there is no sale of beef anywhere in the state of J&K and strict action is taken in accordance with law against those who indulge in it,” the division bench of Justice Dhiraj Singh Thakur and Justice Janak Raj Kotwal observed.

The law the court referred to dates back to the times of the state’s Dogra kings. In 1862, the Dogra maharaja had enacted the Ranbir Penal Code that shares nearly all sections with the Indian Penal Code.

Under Sections 298A and 298B of the Ranbir Penal Code, slaughtering a cow, buffalo or ox is a cognisable and non-bailable offence publishable by 10 years’ imprisonment and a fine. Possessing the meat of these animals is also a crime, attracting a jail term of one year and a fine.

  1. This reminds me of calls from Muslims to implement sharia and laws against those who disrespect Prophet (saw) in the West.
    Eating beef is not a religious value in Islam. Banning cow slaughter is according to the Hindu religious teachings. So if Islam is a religion of peace, no Muslim who lives next to a Hindu should eat beef. No Muslim in India (a Hindu majority country) should eat beef. By doing so he would not be violating any Islamic teachings. He will be in fact following Islamic teachings of love, respect and compassion for others.

  2. As all the states have openly band beef as it is hurting the feelings of other religion, likewise all hard drinks should be band as it hurts the feelings of other religions and drinks (alchohol) is a major cause of diseases and a nuisance to the society and a major threat of all major unlawful acts, which leads to murder, rape, severe p.

    Why is the government silent over major issues and concentrating on stupid issues.

  3. It is not as bad as going to prison for saying Salam.
    Nobody beats Na-Pakistan, when it comes to ridiculousness.

  4. Anwar sahib, you are right. For a moment let Muslim fundamentalists and mullahs taste same bitter pill. That however is not saying that the Hindua are right in banning consumption of beef. It is stupidity and bigotry of the highest order on the part of the Hindus and Pakistani religious zealots. May Allah give victory to the Imam of the Age.
