Mehbooba Mufti justifies beef eating, cites pulse price, Constitution

Significantly, Mehbooba’s remarks came on the sidelines of a function where she shared the dais with Forest Minister and BJP leader Bali Bhagat.

PDP President and Lok Sabha member Mehbooba Mufti on Wednesday justified beef consumption saying “it has become difficult to afford pulses in view of the rising prices’’.

Mehbooba said, “The Constitution of India guarantees freedom to everyone to eat whatever one wants within the four walls of one’s house without hurting the sentiments of others.” “While it has become difficult to afford pulses, the inflation has risen so much, here the course of discussion is what one should eat and what one should not,’’ she added.

Expressing hope that the Constitution “will take care of everything”, she said miscreants should not be allowed to take law into their hands and that they should be dealt with strictly, irrespective of their political and religious affiliations.
