Is India's beef ban red meat for the PM's base?
It's takes a lot of nerve to serve up a beef curry in India these days. Especially in the country's Haryana province where this week legislation made selling beef a criminal offence. And it's not just Haryana. Maharashtra, the country's largest province and home to Mumbai passed a law against the possession and sale of beef earlier this month. Some think this beef crackdown is all part of a Hindu nationalist agenda being pursued by the country's Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Shoaib Daniyal a writer for Scroll explains what's going on.
