Meat ban

On 19/3/2017 Yogi Adityanath became UP CM. Soon there was meat ban in UP. Now BJP governments in Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, MP, Rajasthan, and Uttarakhand have imposed meat ban. Officially the governments claim they are against illegal slaughterhouses. In reality all slaughterhouses are shut down.
BJP wants India to become a Hindu nation. For BJP vegetarianism is part of Hinduism. Many Hindus eat meat, fish and eggs. BJP had governments in Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, MP, Rajasthan, and Uttarakhand before. They did not impose meat ban before. Victory in UP gave BJP confidence to pursue its hidden agenda of vegetarianism. Fish ban and egg ban is a matter of time. There will be ban on cakes, candies, chocolates and cookies.
BJP government in MP had stopped eggs as part of mid-day meals. In Maharashtra, BJP banned buffalo meat. Shiv Sena opposed meat ban during Paryushan.
BJP talks development of all. By all it means vegetarian Hindus. Muslims, Christians, Jews, Zoroastrians, and Bahais are excluded. BJP considers Buddhists, Jains and Sikhs as Hindus. Jains are vegetarians and abstain from root vegetables and honey. Buddhists and Sikhs are free to eat meat.
Meat ban has economic and other consequences. Many will lose income and jobs. Prices of vegetables will go up. Many will lose their favourite food. Unemployment will lead to problems. Animals will be left on the roads. Some will destroy crops. Environment Ministry permitted killing of blue bulls (nilgais) in Bihar because they were destroying crops.
BJP wants to impose yoga, Sanskrit and vegetarianism. It will not rest with constructing a few temples. It wants ban on burial of the dead and wants cremation for all. Many Hindus bury their dead. MGR was buried. Kannada actor Rajkumar was buried. Jayalalitha’s tomb is visited by her followers. Cremation causes pollution.
In 2014 during Lok Sabha campaign Narendra Modi had talked against Pink Revolution. This time in UP, Muslims were his targets. “If a village has a cemetery it should also have a crematorium. If there is electricity for Ramzan it should be there for Diwali.”
RSS pracharaks, babas, sadhvis and yogis becoming ministers leads to imposition of their religious views on others. In Haryana, Uttarakhand, and UP, BJP did not declare its CM candidates beforehand. In UP, Yogi Adityanath had not contested as an MLA. Till Yogi Adityanath becomes an MLA or MLC in UP, it is the tyranny of the unelected in UP.
