Upananda Brahmachari | New Delhi | Sept 19, 2015:: It was a most embarrassing situation for the party and its Hindu counterparts, when a Muslim BJP leader in Kashmir declared to host a “beef party”, in defiance of a J&K High Court order directing the state government to strictly implement the ban on sale of beef and cow slaughter without any lapses of keen vigil.
Md. Khursheed Ahmad Malik, a BJP leader from south Kashmir, said on last Sunday that he would invite Hindus and Muslims to the party to send a “message of religious tolerance”.
“I have decided to organise a party simultaneously for both Hindus and Muslims. The Muslims will be served beef and the Hindus an exclusively vegetarian meal in same table,” Malik told the media. “This party will send a message of religious tolerance, brotherhood and secularism.”
The Muslim BJP leader, who unsuccessfully contested the 2014 assembly elections from Kokernag, said: “Apart from politics, I am a Muslim. I can’t compromise on my religious faith, not at all.” So, the devout Khursheed never mentioned whether pork could be served in the same table of Muslim sharers as a mark of ‘religious tolerance’.
The matter created a discontent among the Hindu members of BJP and they were finding any chance of rebuttal.
Now, a courageous Ravinder Raina, BJP MLA Nowshera, has moved a resolution in Legislative Assembly on Friday for the implementation of the ban on cow beef as per the direction of High Court of J&K.
The resolution submitted by Raina to LA not only demands strict implementation of beef ban in the state, but advocates capital punishment for those found guilty of defying the ban. “All cow slaughtering houses and shops selling cow beef should be sealed and their licences should be cancelled with immediate effect as per the ruling of Hon’ble High Court. Those found guilty should be awarded capital punishment,” Rain’s resolution states.
J&K High court had on Wednesday given a week’s time to the state government to file its response to a writ petition seeking to strike down the Constitutional provisions criminalising bovine slaughter in the state.
With this master stroke BJP in J&K conveys their strong stand to prohibit cow slaughter and beef ban in the state along with defying any ‘beef party’ hosted by any members of it under party banner.
