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.

BJP President Amit Shah on Sunday said that the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Bill was “very necessary” and added that the government was working on building a consensus with stakeholders in the northeast.

Addressing the media here, Amit Shah also said that the government had brought the bill after much thought and Home Minister Rajnath Singh was holding consultations with various people to address the opposition to the issue.

“There are two sides of a coin. There are decisions that some like and some don’t… The fate of huge number of refugees can’t be kept hanging in the balance and we are firm on it,” he said.

Asked what would be the BJP’s stand if suggestions come to withdraw the Bill as it has created unrest in the entire northeast, Amit Shah said: “Home Minister is holding discussions with political parties. Discussion with some parties have already taken place. If consensus emerges, we will definitely move ahead but the Citizenship Bill is highly necessary for the country.”

The Bill seeks to grant Indian citizenship to Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis and Christians from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan who entered India before December 31, 2014.
