Kiren Rijiju: I eat beef, can somebody stop me?

Condemning Minister of State for Minority Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi for asking beef eating people to go to Pakistan, Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju said that he eats beef and no one can stop him from doing so, as per an  Indian Express report.

Kiren Rijiju, who hails from Arunachal Pradesh, boldly stated that India is a democratic and multi-religious country and hence, one should respect their fellow countrymen's faith and practices.

Slamming Naqvi, Rijiju said that one should not comment over the practices of others and such statements are unacceptable. Earlier, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley too had expressed his disappointment over Naqvi's statement and had stated that the government doesn't support such comments.

At a conclave organised by Headlines Today, Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi had stated that people who cannot stop eating beef, should go to Pakistan or Arab countries where beef is readily available.
