The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has banned the sale of meat in Mumbai for 4 days in view of the Jain fasting season. This news has definitely not gone down well with the Twitterati. While some took the comic route to vent their views, some fervently opposed the announcement. And some even trolled celebrities who came out in support of the ban such as Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor, who chose to label it as ‘misogynistic’ on Twitter!

I don’t care if I’m with right wing or left wing, but I’m not with you if you deprive me of chicken wings. #meatban ?

Our country is going to remain a 3rd world nation because of the intolerant misogynistic close minded few. https://t.co/JcIDEC3gQE

Good point made!
Personally oppose bans in general.However,if the #meatban has been around for a while now,why hadn’t we heard a whimper in all these years?

What has Mumbai come to?
