Jammu and Kashmir lawmaker Engineer Rashid beaten up in assembly by BJP members. He had allegedly hosted beef party yesterday
Sheikh Abdul Rashid, an independent MLA in Jammu and Kashmir assembly was thrashed by angry BJP MLAs for hosting a beef party yesterday.
BJP MLA Ravinder Raina first began thrashing Rashid where other MLAs were seen joining him. Immediately, Rashid was rescued and escorted out with the help of opposition members and security.
Rashid hosted the beef party at the MLA hostel where he invited members from the civil society. He already alleged that BJP MLAs vandalized the hostel during the event and that three staffers who tried to stop them were suspended by the government.
The beef party took place in the lawns of MLA hostel here, with the guests being served beef kebabs, 'ristas' (meat balls) and beef patties.          
Rashid had claimed that he did not want to offend anyone but wanted to send a message that "no courts or legislature can prevent the people from eating what they want".
The step was "just to give them (legislators) a clear message that it hardly makes any difference whether you accept or reject the bill... religious matters cannot be kept subservient to courts and assembly," the MLA had said.       
"Nobody on earth, no assembly, no court and no institution can stop us from having what we want to have," he added.   
The beef row erupted after a division bench of High Court in Jammu directed the state to strictly implement the ban in the state as per the law.
The order had evoked strong resentment from various quarters with many separatist and religious organisations terming it as "interference in religious affairs" and sought revocation of the law, besides pressing for implementation of ban on liquor in the state.    
The issue is now before the Supreme Court.





MLA Sheikh Abdul Rashid today hosted a beef party and said that no courts or legislature can prevent the people from eating what they want. The legislator from Langate hosted the party in the lawns of MLA hostel here, with the guests being served beef kebabs, ‘ristas’ (meat balls) and beef patties. Rashid claimed that he did not want to offend anyone but wanted to send a message that “no courts or legislature can prevent the people from eating what they want”. He anticipated that a private member bill brought in the Assembly to counter the HC order would be “buried” tomorrow in the House. His step was “just to give them (legislators) a clear message that it hardly makes any difference whether you accept or reject the bill… religious matters cannot be kept subservient to courts and assembly,” the MLA said. “Nobody on earth, no assembly, no court and no institution can stop us from having what we want to have,” he added.
