India: Beef Ban

Aurangabad, India, March 2015:

Imtiyaz Jaleel, leader of AIMIM (All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul Muslimeen) and Member of Legislative Assembly from the central Aurangabad constituency speaks to journalists during a press conference, where he addressed his concerns over the beef ban and campaigned for his party in the upcoming municipal elections.


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.
