IIT Madras students hold beef fest to protest Centre's cattle slaughter ban

As many as 50 students of IIT Madras organised a beef fest inside the campus to protest the Centre’s recent move to ban trade of cattle for slaughter in animal markets, report said. The development comes on the heels of a raging debate over the issue which intensified further following a row over a Youth Congress activist butchering a calf in full public view in Kerala. A case has also been registered against a Youth Congress worker Rijil Makulti and his accomplices for slaughtering a calf in public in Kannur during the beef fest. Condemning the incident, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi said, “What happened in Kerala is thoughtless,barbaric& completely unacceptable to me & the Congress Party. I strongly condemn the incident.” Meanwhile, Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said the Youth Congress workers have been suspended and that such elements have no place in the party.
