Aligarh Muslim University, 'beef briyani'

Aligarh: An uproar has kicked off in the Aligarh Muslim University over 'beef biryani'. The University now finds itself in another controversy.
The issue broke out on social media yesterday when one WhatsApp post circulated a report that beef biryani was being served at the AMU Medical College canteen. But this allegation has been refuted by the university. 
BJP leaders and several right wing activists held demonstration outside the police station demanding registration of an FIR against the contractor of the AMU Medical College canteen for serving beef biryani.

The university says that they never serve beef which contains cow meat in it. What the menu suggests was essentially meat of buffalo and not of cow. AMU has refused to accept that they were serving cow meat in their canteen.
This is a very sensitive matter so the police is investigating it and trying to maintain peace and calm in the university premises.
