The Deoband-based Islamic seminary's plea to refrain from cow slaughter and beef eating has been warmly received with people saying the gesture will go a long way in further cementing Hindu-Muslim brotherhood.
"The appeal to refrain from cow slaughter and beef eating is in tandem with India's secular ethos and sentiments. It is a welcome move that will go a long way in bridging the gap between Hindus and Muslims," Harcharan Singh Josh, a member of the National Commission for Minorities, said.
