A scrumptious meal of biryani often leaves food lovers licking their fingers off the plate. The magic of the South Asian mixed rice dish is such that it has waged a war between vegetarians and non-vegetarians several times in the past. As if that wasn’t enough, another debate of eating biryani with ketchup and mayonnaise had Tweeple up in arms earlier. In another bizarre incident, Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) has slapped fines ranging between Rs 6,000 and Rs 10,000 on four students for cooking and eating biryani near the Administrative Block in June.

Calling it ‘indiscipline’, three students — Chepal Sherpa, Amir Malik and Manish Kumar — have been fined Rs 6,000 each, and former JNU Students’ Union general secretary Satarupa Chakraborty has been fined Rs 10,000. The students have been given 10 days to pay the fine and “warned to be careful and not to get involved in such incidents in future”, failing which “more stringent disciplinary action” would be taken against them.

Here’s the order given by the university.

No sooner did the news reach the ears of social media users, Twitter started buzzing with tweets from foodies who expressed their rage and displeasure. Take a look at some reactions here.
