Maharashtra government has banned beef in the state. The ML Khattar government in Haryana is likely to be next where the BJP manifesto in the state equated cow slaughter with homicide.

Has the 'live and let live' slogan been slaughtered on the political altar? And is Congress playing both ways by taking an ambiguous stand on the ban?
