He added that by indulging in beef parties one was supporting ‘evilness’.
Kumar also said that cow milk is healthier than beef which makes one prone to diseases. “Cow milk is healthier than beef. Milk is medicine while beef makes you prone to diseases. People should understand this and should not eat beef,” Kumar said.
