India: Beef Ban

Aurangabad, India, March 2015:

Mohamad Hisham Osmani (center) a famers wing leader of congress party speaks to Shokat Qureshi (left) and Mohamed Muktar Qureshi (Right) - both meat merchants, about the newly introduced been ban law.

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.
