Two Muslim women were reportedly beaten up by members of cow vigilante groups at Mandsaur railway station in Madhya Pradesh on Wednesday over suspicion that they were carrying beef. The women were reportedly caught carrying 30 kg of meat after which police was informed.

However, initial reports by a veterinary doctor suggest that the meat was that of a buffalo. Importing of buffalo meat inside Madhya Pradesh without permission is illegal and thus both of them have been taken into custody for ‘smuggling and trying to sell’ the meat.

The video made by passers-by spread on social media giving rise to outrage following which state Home Minister Bhupinder Singh said that appropriate action will be taken. Bahujan Samajwadi Party chief Mayawati also responded to this incident and said: “BJP raises slogans ‘Mahilao ke Samman me, BJP maidan me, yet in BJP ruled Madhya Pradesh women are thrashed on beef rumours.”

The incident has happened just a couple of weeks after a video of Dalit youths being thrashed for skinning a cow went viral on the internet leading to protests in Gujarat and other parts of the country.

    So sorry state of our country . Its seems a sickness has affected our society. Every 1 is just fighting in the name of religion, not even knowing or understanding a bit if it. Just following and fighting blindly over what have been put into their mind. lt;br/gt;Hunduism has been reduced to a mere cow worship instead of worshiping its maker. We r getting mocked throughout the world just for these goons and their sick mind. Every educated person abroad are making a fun of us .

      I think more than Babas we gave division of India by Muslims again. Remember what Jinnah said in 1947 that Muslims cannot live with Hindu majority. Yet they have lived and multiplied like pigs.

        What kind of sickness has afflicted our great country from the time the new govt has taken control. Hatred seems to have taken a toll on everybody. lt;br/gt;Why can't these bhakts see that the w Europe and America and every country survives and relishes the pure meat. I think these pure things r meant to be consumed and its creator needs to be worshiped. Instead people r doing the reverse. What kind of God will accept your vandalism? lt;br/gt;It's time we think and open our eyes before it's too late and bring back the peace we have been living .
