Skip to comments.In a first, Indian state bans possession and sale of beef

The state that includes Mumbai, Indias financial capital, this week became the first in the country to ban the possession and sale of beef, imposing fines and up to five years in prison for violations. The ban in the populous western state of Maharashtra, which was passed this week, came as an amendment to a 1972 law prohibiting the slaughter of cows, which has been expanded to ban the slaughter of bulls, bullocks and calves. The slaughter of water buffaloes will still be allowed, subject to permission from the authorities.

Water buffalo meat is better than cow meat. And they yield more and richer milk. My parents always had a few of those animals on their farm.
If I had any thought of going to India, it’s gone now.
and people may use restrooms... subject ot approval by the government of course
Where’s Clara Peller when you need her?
Does it taste gamey?
Lamb meat is delicious, as is buffalo, but they are pretty pungent too depending on the size of the animal and age.
However it really screws the muslims who are there.
Interesting. You learn something gnu every day.
(Yes - I know they are not the same animal.
I've just been itching to use that joke.)
McDonalds is deeply offended,,,
So no pork...no beef...guess I’ll order the chicken curry.
At least the Chinese have no such compunctions. Beef, pork, snake, cat...bring it on!
I’m confused. What’s the connection between McDonalds and beef?
So what’s gnu with ewe?
Well, there is a McDonalds in Mumbai. I guess they'll have to settle for veggie patties now.
Combined and properly seasoned they would make some bitchin' Gyros.
Or possibly a nice Pljeskavica with fresh Kajmuk.
That's OK, as the burgers aren't made of beef to begin with...
Aren’t cows worshipped as a god, in India?
Reminds me of a quote from Pulp Fiction in which Jules tells Vincent "well,sewer rat may taste like pumpkin pie but I'll never eat the ******"
It's bad enough that mozzarella is made from water buffalo milk....I'll pass on buffalo sirloin and stick with the cow variety.
Friend of mine had one of the early PC shops in San Diego back in the early 80s. He had some sleazy competition from an Indian owned shop. Liked to tweak them by walking in wearing a “Eat Moe Beef” ballcap.....
I think this new law is a miss-steak
Maybe they should REQUIRE everyone to eat pork. That way the state will be free of the followers of MoHAMed.
