Accusing BJP leadership of exploiting religious sentiments of Hindi community, incumbent Langate lawmaker Er Rasheed has said that Manohar Parikar’s statement to import beef from Karnataka and western countries has exposed Sang Parivar’s hypocrisy and real face.
While addressing a public meeting at Panzgam Kupwara on Thursday Rasheed said, “Those killing Muslims in the name of Cows need to answer whether Cows are holy only at places where BJP and Sang Parivar deems them so?”
“If cow is holy in Gujarat how is slaughtering animals fair in Karnataka or any other part of world. Manohar Parikar’s proposal to import beef to Goa is ample proof to conclude that BJP is crying cow protection only as a political slogan to divide Hindu’s and Muslims for electoral gains,” Rasheed said in a statement.
“Rasheed told Manohar Parikar to get beef from J&K as the production of beef is much more in this state because of the fact that there is abundance of green pastures,” the statement said.
Rasheed offered Parikar 50% discount on beef purchases as compared to rates available in Karnataka or any other western country. He added that those killing Muslims in the name of beef need not to forget that when Home Minister Rajnath Singh visited North East states recently, a beef party attended by three thousand people was held to give Rajnath Singh a louder message that eating or not eating beef is personal choice of every individual.
He appealed masses to remain united not only to fight for the political rights but sang Parivar’s anti-Muslim politics.
