Jammu and Kashmir: VHP threatens stir if House allows discussion on anti-beef ban bill

19, Sep 2015

VHP said it would enforce an economic blockade in J&K if the assembly allowed a discussion to revoke provisions criminalizing bovine slaughter and sale of beef in the state.
VHP on Friday threatened to launch a massive agitation and enforce an economic blockade in Jammu and Kashmir if the assembly allowed a discussion to revoke provisions criminalizing bovine slaughter and sale of beef in the state.
“We warn the state government that Jammu would observe a black day and the people of the region would be forced to take to the streets if the Assembly Speaker allowed a discussion on an anti-beef ban bill,” Leela Karan Sharma, president of VHP’s state unit told reporters.
“If the beef ban is revoked, VHP would enforce an economic blockade in Kashmir, forcing people to starve. The people of Jammu would not tolerate it…the government will have face consequences,” he said.
“People will be forced to take to the streets and launch an agitation similar to the one in 2008 if slaughtering of bovines continued unabated in the region,” Sharma said.
