Lucknow, March 29: After the crackdown on illegal slaughter houses in Uttar Pradesh, the state is facing severe shortage of meat, including buffalo, mutton and chicken. Thus guests at a Muslim mass wedding in Moradabad on Tuesday were served vegetable biryani, instead of traditional mutton/beef biryani.

The organisers of the mass wedding told ANI that vegetable biryani was served due to the shortage of meat. "Muslim mass wedding held in Moradabad. Organisers say vegetable biryani was served due to shortage of meat," reported ANI.

The city of Moradabad is well-known for its special biryani. Alam Biryani Shop, known to serve mouth-watering biryani made of buffalo meat, in Moradabad is also experiencing tough time due to shortage of meat.

Since the crackdown on illegal slaughter houses across the state -- a decision taken by the newly-formed Bharatiya Janata Party government -- Alam Biryani Shop has stopped serving buffalo meat biryani. The famous food joint, with several outlets in the city, is serving only chicken and pickle biryani to patrons.

Moreover, in recent times the request of several Muslim families to serve beef biryani at weddings has been denied by the administration in Uttar Pradesh. Recently, the meat sellers and butchers of the state organised a strike to protest against action taken against slaughter houses by the government.

Even Lucknow's famous Tunday Kababi eatery, known for its mouthwatering kebabs, has stopped serving beef kebabs recently.
