Beef ban to be rolled back by Centre?

New Delhi: The beef ban has been a topic of multiple discussions, both civil and violent. Is it unconstitutional? Is it infringing on the rights of the states and the citizens?

Debates were not the only outcome of the ban. Many cities witnessed the horror of multiple lynchings and other violent outbursts from people claiming to want to protect the cow.

After all the “hullaballoo”, the Centre has decided to rescind its order, given on May 25, to prohibit the sale of cows and buffaloes for slaughter across the country.

This decision comes after the Centre has received feedback from various states. The notification which was issued by the Union Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change stating that cattle could not be brought into an animal market without a written declaration; that they would not be sold for slaughter, caused a public outcry across the nation. Critics of the government even accused them of trying to enforce their ideology on the rest of the country.

A slew of protests all over the country followed the notification, especially in Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka, where the ban was met with stern opposition.

Harsh Vardhan, Environment Minister, suggested that the government was open to rolling back the notification, as the government was trying its best to fight back criticism. Even the judiciary wasn’t spared when it came to the whole “beef ban” controversy.

The Madras and the Kerala high courts, severally gave their verdicts on the matter. Unfortunately, the outcome was conflicting as the Madras High Court put a stay on the implementation of the notification and the Kerala court wanted nothing to do with the matter.

The judiciary’s “big boss”, the Supreme Court of India, had the final say when it gave the verdict that the Madras High Court’s ruling was operational and surprisingly, the government hinted that they were not opposed to the stay on the notification being in place.
