Reports of beef biryani being served at the Aligarh Muslim University medical college canteen created a row with BJP staging a dharna outside police headquarters demanding FIR against canteen contractor. But the university authorities denied the reports and rejected case against the canteen owner.
The issue broke out on social media yesterday when a WhatsApp post circulated a report that ‘beef biryani’ was being served at the AMU Medical College canteen.
The reports spread the impression that it was cow meat and not the meat of buffalo that was being served. A picture of the canteen’s menu card also went viral on social media.
BJP Mayor Shakuntala Bharti, along with party leaders and several right wing activists, held a demonstration outside the office of Senior Superintendent of Police, demanding registration of an FIR .Police said the matter was still under investigation.
