India: Beef Ban

Aurangabad, India, March 2015:

Qureshi community (the butcher community) workers seen at the municipal slaughter house in Padegaon, Aurangabad. The workers in the slaughter house earn 100 rupees per animal; since the 'beef ban bill' slaughtering of bulls and bullocks have stopped; hence the work load has decreased.

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.
