The Bombay High Court, in its order, has stated that a person can have beef in Maharashtra, provided it has been purchased from neighbouring state, where it is not banned. Here’s how Twitterati reacted to the development.
So you can't slaughter a cow in Maharashtra, but you can do it outside and eat it here? And no one finds this hypocritical or absurd? #beef— lindsay pereira (@lindsaypereira) May 6, 2016
So, the slaughter of cows in other states does not hurt the religious sentiments of anyone in Maharashtra. Cool! #beef— Yashnashree (@tinker_toes) May 6, 2016
