India: Beef Ban

Aurangabad, India, March 2015:

Beef shops shut down in Butti Lane area of Aurangabad. Since the ban of beef sale these meat shops can only sell buffalo meat, which is least favoured by the community. The shops take hit in profits, and the workers lose their job.

In March 2015, Maharashtra government introduced a bill to ban slaughter of bulls and bullocks. This ban has been opposed by the muslim community (especially qureshi - the butcher community) as it impacts their lively hood.
