Kerala Assembly Speaker P Sreeramakrishnan on Wednesday wrote to Tamil Nadu Chief Minister K Palaniswami, seeking stern action against those responsible for the attack on an IIT-Madras PhD scholar, hailing from Kerala. Immediate action should be taken to provide medical and legal help to R Sooraj, the speaker said in the letter, a copy of which was released to the media here.

A case has also been registered against Sooraj by those who had allegedly attacked him, the speaker said.

Sooraj was allegedly assaulted by some students allegedly by some students protesting against a “beef fest” held on the campus.

The beef fest was held to protest the Centre’s ban on the sale of cattle for slaughter at animal market.

    now-a-days nice to know Hindus regard pea as it does not have (a juge). Even Lord Krishna likes pea because it has no . Does god verify who has or who does not have on earth. Tomorrow they may urge people to worship snake and embrace tiger beacause Durga or Snake God is worshipped. BJP has no work failed in giving jobs, now picking quarrel with common people.

    now-a-days people will worship pea because they do not have and use cow dungs, cow because it is Hindu symbol. Looks like people in India never worshipped cow and never used cow dungs or never kept pea feather on Krishna's hair. BJP is teaching Religion in funny way by campaigning for cow slaughter. Why not worship snakes, snake god is worshipped in many temple, tomprrow BJP will tell keep snakes at home and feed milk as daily food, or even they might tell embrace Tiger bcouse it is vahana of Goddess Durga. If protection of animal can be citizen's task.who will come to sa uard human Shocking to know Pea does not have so Lord Krishna likes pea . Does god love who has or who does not have

    now-a-days, people in India will worship pea because it has not with mat, and becasue cow;s ,dung etc can be eaten by Idol worshiper of Modi or Yogi, I want to know if tomrorrow govt wold tell people to keep snakes in every house, because snake is worshipped. But worship does not mean one should deeply regard the animal.Even in Aiyappa has Tiger, will then people embrace tiger ifthey find in zoo, God is God and man should not try to become God in this earth by imitating Him. Only if people ( BJP, RSS and all Hindu fanatics ) could have understood, the nation would not have been on cow slaughter topic at all.

    A true tamil shall never eat beef, because bull is the vahan of lord siva, and cow is our foster mother. Only less than 10 of total population of tamilnadu may eat beef.
