Racheting up his attack on the Centre over the ban on the sale of cattle for slaughter at animal markets, Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Sunday said the people in his state do not need a lesson on food habits from New Delhi or Nagpur.

Keralites have been following a traditional food habit, which is healthy and nutritious, and no one can change it, he said at a function here. “The state government will give all facilities to people to have food of their choice. There is no need for Keralites to learn it from anybody in New Delhi or Nagpur (headquarters of RSS),” Vijayan said.

Minister for Local Administration K T Jaleel said the state government would consider formulating a new legislation to skirt the ban. The Centre is trying to impose the RSS’s agenda of a uniform culture, CPI(M) state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan said in Kozhikode.

The agenda of the BJP’s recent Bhuwaneswar party conference was “one nation, one culture and one party and the saffron party is trying to impose it through the cattle ban”, he said.

              Kerala has no right to protest as that state has already disseminated their local cattle population. Kerala, in love with Swedish cattle, introduced the Kerala Livestock Improvement Act in 1961. The act required castration of domestic bulls and their eventual slaughter for beef. Most of the domestic variety of cattle is now extinct in Kerala. If they want to eat Swedish or European beef by all means the government should allow them that freedom. But under no cir stances they have any right on India’s humped deshi variety from other states. It is the deshi variety that provides the most nutritious A2 milk. While our forefathers learnt about this over 7000 years ago, western countries are discovering it only now. At least we should allow our children to grow disease free with A2 milk.

                Goats milk is more near to human milk as per the scientific analyses. Then why the government is not banning slaughter of goats.?
