India: Beef Ban

Aurangabad, India, March 2015:

Temple and wall painting of Chhatrapati Shivaji (Maratha King) whose is a political icon of Hindu Nationalist parties - Shiv Sena, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) etc, seen at Sha Ganj area of Aurangabad.

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.
