No discussion on anti-beef ban bill as J&K assembly adjourned

Srinagar, Oct 8: The anti-beef ban bill seeking amendment to the Ranbir Penal Code (RPC) that criminalises sale, slaughter and possession of beef couldn’t be taken up for discussion on Thursday as the Jammu and Kashmir assembly speaker adjourned the house amid opposition protests.

The ban on beef or its sale is seen as an extremely sensitive issue in Jammu and Kashmir, with the predominant Muslim majority terming consumption of beef lawful and a significant Hindu population opposing the revocation of the beef ban because of religious sentiments involved.
