The sale of meat was barred during 9-day Navratri festival by Mayors of South and East Delhi yesterday, even as there was no official order issued by the civic bodies.

South Delhi Mayor Mukesh Suryan said that devotees during these nine days avoid eating meat and certain spices. East Delhi Municipal Corporation Mayor Shyam Sundar Agarwal issued similar advise.

Following their statements, several meat shop owners in these areas of the national capital kept their establishments closed, fearing action by officials.

On NDTV Columnist Zainab Sikander said, "This is just dirty politics. Nothing else. The MCD elections are around and this is being done."

Tavleen Singh said she is outraged and against officially imposed religious fanaticism. While restauranteur Vineet Wadhwa said, "First beef, now meat and halal. Don't know what we need to prepare ourselves for"
