Joining the debate on cow slaughter, orthodox Muslim cleric Kanthapuram Aboobacker Musaliyar on Saturday said the argument that cow should not be killed was “against the Constitution”.
Addressing a community outfit’s function in Kannur, the prominent Sunni leader said that it was against the Constitution to say that cow should not be slaughtered on the ground that the animal was worshipped.
Recently Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar had stated that the cow was an article of faith and Muslims could continue to live in this country, but they would have to give up eating beef.
