Except the cow any other meat is fine says Ramdas Athawale
One cannot eat cow meat, but consuming meat of other animals is fine, Union Minister Ramdas Athawale said.
"One should not eat cow meat as there is a law against cow slaughter and the Hindu community has a sentiment attached with cows. But there is no problem in eating the meat of other animals," Athawale said.
He further said that thrashing and killing people in name of cow protection has become a fashion nowadays.
"Some people are trying to break the unity and integrity of the nation. No one has right to take law in his or her hands. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has also said that if anyone indulges in any violence in name of cow protection, then a strict action will be taken against them," he added.
Contrary to this, earlier, Athawale had said that everybody has the right to eat beef.
