This incident reminds of another such similar incident that happened in Uttar Pradesh in April 2017. A wedding in Muzaffarnagar was called off after seeing that only pure vegetarian dishes were served for the guests.This incident took place in Kulhedi village. Apparently, the bride’s family told the groom’s family that they are serving vegetarian dishes due to the shortage of meat in the market. The groom’s family called off the wedding. However, there was a happy ending to this incident as a guest proposed to the bride and she accepted to marry him.
Talking about the beef ban in Yogi Adityanath’s Uttar Pradesh, after he came into power in March 2017, the BJP government put a ban on illegal slaughterhouses. The UP law bans the slaughter of cow, bullock and ox, and prohibits the storage or consumption of beef. But buffaloes are exempt from the law.
