Meat ban can't be forced down people's throat: SC

HINDUSTAN TIMES, NEW DELHI | 17 September 2015 20:40 IST

"These are issues which cannot be forced down somebody's throat...

When we are celebrating feast why we should stop others from eating meat and so on, it is a feast of mine let me take care of myself and my family. Thank you judges; I always say this is my signature statement “Thinking ahead we should deliver today.”

Very well done judiciary. Modi govt. has no right to shove stuff under our throats. Let us put an end to all the bans. When some movie comes up, Alemao runs to the theatre and bring it down, when some book comes out, somebody else wants it to be banned. Enough of all these tamasha to please selective group of people for vote politics.
