Swamy's call against beef-eating his personal stand: Goa BJP


Panaji, Apr 15 (IANS): Rejecting BJP leader Subramanian Swamy's call for a change in Goa's beef-eating tradition, a state party spokesperson on Friday said the statement was Swamy's "personal stand" and not the party's position on the issue.

Asked to react to a Congress party demand asking Goa's BJP leaders to openly condemn Swamy's comments, party spokesperson Dattaprasad Naik said: "I don't think this is an issue at all in Goa. All communities live in harmony in Goa. It is probably his personal stand. It is not the party's stand."

Last week during a national TV debate on the ongoing beef ban controversy, Swamy said that Goa had a beef-eating tradition, which needed to be changed.

More than a third of the BJP-ruled state's population comprises minorities and eating beef is a common practice among the majority of the Christian and Muslim communities as well as among thousands of tourists who frequent the coastal state.

    Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu on Tuesday said that he was a non-vegetarian but he preferred to eat only what was allowed by Indian constitution. But father of Indian constitution has Dr Ambedkar written;
    "One can quite understand vegetarianism. One can quite understand meat-eating. But it is difficult to understand why a person who is a flesh-eater should object to one kind of flesh, namely cow's flesh. This is an anomaly which calls for explanation." "...no one can doubt that there was a time when Hindus, both Brahmins and non-Brahmins, ate not only flesh but also beef."

    "We have heard what Raman Singh has said....What's happening in UP. The hypocrisy behind cow protection is obvious. Saying that there will be no beef ban in Goa and northeastern states is political opportunism," .
    Now Subramanian swamy being one of the qualified lawyer should teach his BJP colleagues how "cows sacred in one state and profane in other"?

    Many issues raised by BJP leader Subramanian Swamy kind of people is just to create rift among communities and gain political mileage from it, that's all.

    In most of the GCC countries there's no ban on pork because its the eating right of non Muslims and they are respecting that ....
    In India we all know what's going on ...
    And we cannot blame BJP alone...Its Congress & like minded parties who's responsible for all this confusion..For example in UP, SP ruled for 5 years and they didn't renew license for most of the slaughter houses and people carried on this business without any problems and now facing all the problems...
    Congress ruled for 60 years and didn't bring any clear law on beef .

    Eating Beef is the choice of individuals and should not be restricted by anyone. It is important to make the distinction between different kinds of Beef. For example, grass-fed and organic Beef is very different from factory-farmed, processed Beef.

    In 2014 elections, the urban and educated youth vote share of BJP increased tremendously which resulted in absolute majority for BJP. That was only because the youth and educated fell for the development manthra of BJP.

    The beef and Yogi politics will avert all these votes in the 2019 elections, unless BJP resumes some immediate damage control policies.
    If not, NOA will be my preference in the next voting!

    good governance,
    every thing is good about BJP except for beef, Yogi, anti romeo and other absurd, communally divisive policies.

    Devkumar , As though the phillipines or china would care a damn for your objections. For that matter, nobody in Mangalore /Goa /kerela/ tamilnadu cares a Damn about what others eat. Even In Nepal , which is a totally Hindu country , people eat beef & Pork . It is their staple diet there. Problem is All the B.J.P members in Goa including Parriker & Parsekar are Beef eaters & cant do without their favourite meat.
