India: Beef Ban

Aurangabad, India, March 2015:

Tourists visit Bibi-Ka-Maqbara a mausoleum built by Mugul emperor Aurangzeb in the memory of his wife Dilras Banu Begum. Aurangabad was a capital of Aurangzeb during his period as viceroy of the Deccan.

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.
