The BJP government of Karnataka are pursuing a divisive policy that will lead to the suffering of many farmers who choose to eat non-vegetarian food. This bill is a direct assault on the Dalits, Adivasis, Muslims and Christians. The BJP government should represent all the people of Karnataka, not just the people whose diets they approve of.
Cattle provide a valuable source of income to many impoverished farmers and this bill will seriously undermine this. This bill is not inspired by any theological objection, but rather it is an attempt to attack and subjugate already marginalized groups.
