Muslims must drink cow urine to enter Garba festival: BJP MLA

Garba: BJP MLA advises norm for Muslims
Bhopal, Sept 23: BJP MLA from Madhya Pradesh Rameshwar Sharma sparked off a controversy on Monday by remarking that Muslims must taste cow urine or panchgavya (a concoction made of five cow products, namely, milk, ghee, curd, urine and dung) they want to get an entry to Garba venues, an Indian Express report said.

Sharma's recommendation on keeping the Muslims off the festival came during a meeting with Hindu Utsav Samiti in the state capital. It was also said that Muslims could enter the Garba venues only when accompanied by their female family members.

It was also suggested during the meeting that all Garba celebrations should begin with singing of Vande Mataram, the national song.

On the question of being accompanied by female family members, Sharma, an MLA from Huzur constituency in Bhopal, said it would ensure that they behave properly and not eye Hindu girls. He also said that the Hindus never disturb them when they offer namaz (their prayers), and so the Muslims shouldn't also try to enter the Garba festival.
