Patna: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad on Saturday said that it was wrong to kill anyone for eating beef and created a fresh controversy by saying that some Hindus also eat beef.

Lalu said:

“It was wrong to kill a man for eating beef in Dadri (Uttar Pradesh). Everyone is free to consume food items of his choice”


What happened in Dadri was a communal violence.The BJP is responsible for such violence,” the former Bihar chief minister said.

He also asked whether Hindus are not eating meat. The RJD chief said that some of those living in foreign countries or visit abroad eat beef and even in the country, some Hindus eat beef.

What is the difference between beef and mutton for those who consume meat,” Lalu asked, prompting senior BJP leader and Union Minister Griraj Singh to ask him to take back his words.

Lalu also said: “People should not eat beef at all, it is the cause of many diseases and not good for health.”

Singh has threatened that BJP will take this issue to the ongoing campaign for Bihar assembly polls if Lalu failed to take back his words.

Feminism itself is nothing but a simple movement that pursues equal rights for women (including transwomen) and against misogyny both external and internal.

Feminism, a worldwide movement that started to establish, define and defend equal rights for women in all sections- economically, politically, and socially. India, being a patriarchal society gives a gender advantage to the men in the society thus, Indian feminists sought to fight against the culture-specific issue for women in India. Feminism itself is nothing but a simple movement that pursues equal rights for women (including transwomen) and against misogyny both external and internal. It states nowhere that women should get more wages than men, that women deserve more respect than men, that's pseudo-feminism.

Kerala is a land of many good things. It has an abundance of nature, culture, art, and food. It is also a place of legend and myth, and is known for its popular folklore, the legend of Yakshi. This is not a popular tale outside the state, but it is common knowledge for travellers, especially those who fare through forests at night.

The legend of the yakshi is believed to be India's equivalent of the Romanian Dracula, except of course, the Yakshi is a female. Many Malayalis believe that the Yakshi wears a white saree and had long hair. She has a particular fragrance, which is believed to be the fragrance of the Indian devil-tree flowers. She seduces travellers with her beauty, and kills them brutally.

The LGBTQ+ acronym stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and others. In India LGBTQ+ community also include a specific social group, part religious cult, and part caste: the Hijras. They are culturally defined either as "neither men nor women" or as men who become women by adopting women's dress and behavior. Section 377 of the India Penal code that criminalized all sexual acts "against the order of nature" i.e. engaging in oral sex or anal sex along with other homosexual activities were against the law, ripping homosexual people off of their basic human rights. Thus, the Indian Supreme Court ruled a portion of Section 377 unconstitutional on 6th September 2018.
