Bangalore: A local BJP leader has warned Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah of beheading if he eats beef.
Local leader SN Channabasappa said that Siddaramaiah was behaving like a dictator. The Deccan Chronicle quoted him as saying, “Let him eat beef at Gopi Circle in Shivamogga. If he does so, he will be beheaded. We won’t think twice about that.”
He further added, “By making such a statement, the Congress leader has hurt the sentiments of Hindus. We have all grown up drinking cow’s milk.”
Channabasappa is a former president of the erstwhile Shivamogga City Municipal Council.
Last week, Siddaramaiah added more fuel to the fire by saying that no one could stop him from eating beef.
At the Karnataka Youth Congress General Body meeting, he ridiculed the government’s anti-beef policy and was quoted saying: “Till date I have never eaten cow meat. But if it suits my palette and if I want to eat beef, I will eat it. Nobody can stop me.”
On September 29, Mohmad Akhlaq was dragged out of his home and stoned to death on a village street after a public announcement from the local temple that the family had slaughtered a calf and eaten its meat.
