Jammu and Kashmir former chief minister Omar Abdullah on Tuesday lashed out Mayor of South Delhi over his dictates of shutting down of meat shops in South Delhi during the Navrata festival.
“During Navratri, 99% of households in Delhi don’t even use garlic & onion, so we’ve decided that no meat shops will be open in South MCD; the decision will be implemented from tomorrow. Fine will be imposed on violators,” South Delhi Municipal Corporation Mayor Mukkesh Suryaan has said.
Omar Abdullah lashes out at his remarks saying that if majoritarianism is right for South Delhi, it has to be right for Jammu and Kashmir as well.
“During Ramzan we don’t eat between sunrise & sunset. I suppose it’s OK if we ban every non-Muslim resident or tourist from eating in public, especially in the Muslim dominated areas,” Omar Abdulla tweeted.
“If majoritarianism is right for South Delhi, it has to be right for J-K,” the former chief minister wrotes.
Earlier, the South Delhi Mayor had also that the Delhi administration will also issue licenses with these conditions in the future.
“I’ve also written to the CM to withdraw their discount on alcohol during Navratri, & if possible, stop the sale of liquor for 9 days too,” he had said.
