After Jammu and Kashmir, Demand for Liquor Ban in Uttar Pradesh
lol.After Jammu and Kashmir, a demand has been made in Uttar Pradesh for banning liquor, with a Muslim organisation saying there should be prohibition in the state which is a "land of faith for both Hindus and Muslims".
The Ittehad-e-Millat Council plans to launch a state-wide campaign for its demand.
The Council also voiced concern over slaughter of cows on a mass scale without proper arrangements for cattle breeding like poultry, saying if the situation continues, a time will come when "our children will not get milk" to drink.
"Consumption of liquor is considered bad in all religions and Uttar Pradesh is a land of faith for both Hindus and Muslims," its President Maulana Tauqeer Raza Khan told PTI.
"If liquor is sold in UP, then it means that it is sold in a place of pilgrimage," said Mr Khan who claimed to have already talked to Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav in this regard.
