Srinagar: Accusing BJP leadership of exploiting religious sentiments of Hindus, MLA Langate Abdul Rasheed Sheikh has said that Goa chief minister Manohar Parrikar’s remarks about importing beef from Karnataka and Western countries has exposed Sang Parivar’s “hypocrisy”.
Rasheed, however, asked Parrikar to purchase beef from J&and offered 50 percent discount to him.
Addressing a public meeting at Panzgam Kupwara Rasheed said that those killing Muslims in the name of cows need to answer if cow is holy in Gujrat how is slaughtering animals fair in Karnataka or any other part of world.
“Manohar Parrikar’s proposal to import beef in 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 as per a statement issued here.
Rasheed added that those killing Muslims in the name of beef should not forget that when Home Minister Rajnath Singh visited North Eastern 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 was a personal choice.
