Beef dealers want beef ban completely revoked

Mumbai: Disappointed by the Bombay High Court verdict which lifted the ban of consumption of beef but stayed the ban on slaughtering of bulls and bullocks, the Bombay Beef Dealer Association, one of the petitioners from the association will be moving to Supreme Court challenging the High Court’s order.
The association has demanded that they want the ban on beef, slaughtering of bulls and bullocks completely lifted from the state. 
However, a day after Bombay High Court revoked the ban on consumption and possession of beef in the state, the Fadnavis government may also appeal to the Supreme Court against the verdict.
While the netas insist on deciding what to eat or not, batting for free choice, activists have slammed the Maharashtra government stating what they chose to eat is their right.
The Bombay High Court on Friday amended the law regarding possession and consumption of beef and decriminalised possession of beef if it is imported from outside the state.
The Bombay High Court, on Friday, ticked off two sections of the Maharashtra Animal Preservation (Amendment) Act which interdicted possession of beef from animals slaughtered outside the state. The High Court said the ban on cow slaughter in the state will continue to exist.
