Jammu, October 01: Congress party has decided to go on in the support of ban on beef and oppose the bills seeking its revocation in the state with a view that revocation of ban on cow killing and beef eating can now provoke communal tension across the country.
As per a top source from inside the party, the state Jammu and Kashmir is already a disturbed one. Acceptance of any bill that seeks revocation of ban on cow slaughter and beef eating in the State will not only lead to the communal tension inside the State but can also result in apprehension all around the country. Congress is a national party and it can’t participate in something that tear apart country’s integration.
Two weeks ago, Leader of the Congress Legislature Party Nawang Rigzin Jora had made a provoking statement alleging Kashmiri Muslim leadership, including religious leadership, who are forcing the people to violate the ban on sale and consummation of beef directed by High Court and requested the authorities to enforce the ban strictly.
Also, NC, CPI-M and Kashmir-based independent MLA have moved the Speaker’s office and sought repeal of all the laws concerning cow killing and beef eating. This move of congress is a significant development at this point. According to reliable sources, BJP and RSS, on the other hand have decided to go with the PDP if it decides to support the move of the NC, the CPI-M and so on and so forth.
