NEW DELHI, May 21: Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Mukhtar Abbas qvi on Thursday justified ban on cow slaughter and asked all those who want to eat beef to go to Pakistan. “It is not about loss or profit... it is an issue of faith and belief. It is a sensitive issue for the Hindus,” qvi said at ‘Manthan’ conclave organised by TV channel Aaj Tak. “Those who are dying without eating beef, can go to Pakistan or Arab countries or any other part of world where it is available,” he said. “Even Muslims are against it...” he contended. qvi was countered by AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi who asked whether the central government would impose blanket ban on beef across India, especially in states like Goa, Jammu and Kashmir and Kerala where a large number of people eat this kind of meat. On the issue of backwardness among Muslims, qvi said the rendra Modi government was taking steps to eradicate poverty among the minorities. “It is a fact that Muslims have remained away from development. Various social security schemes started by our government would help Muslims in a big way,” he added. IANS
