Meat goes off menu at Aligarh muslim university


Following the crackdown on illegal slaughterhouses in Uttar Pradesh, meat has gone missing from the menu of Aligarh Muslim university. The university's student union has written to the Vice Chancellor complaining of only vegetarian food being served at hostels for well over a week. It was usual practice to serve meat twice a week but students claim that only vegetarian food was being served all week.

The university has blamed soaring prices of meat for the situation. "This is only temporary. We will hold talks with the students. Meat rates are very high and hence we have resorted to this temporary arrangement," said Omar Peerzada, Public relations officer, Aligarh Muslim university.

Yogi Adityanath's government started its massive crackdown on illegal meat shops and slaughterhouses soon after they assumed power in the state. Following the crackdown, thousands of meat sellers and traders have gone on indefinite strike resulting in a meat crisis across the state. The Rs 15,000 crore industry has taken a beating with the crackdown and consecutive strike.
