There has been a lot of outraging not just on the social media, but also among politicians following the Centre’s notification on the restriction of sale of cattle for slaughter in animal markets. Comments have been pouring in and states have already decided to bring out a legislation to counter the state’s notification.
The question is, does the centre’s notification really speak about a beef ban?
Let us examine the notification issued by the Ministry of Environment and Forests. To cut a long story short, the notification only sets out a restriction on sale of cattle for slaughter in animal markets.
