Mayor Geeta Jain justifies Mumbai's Mira Road-Bhayandar civic body's decision to ban sale of meat during Jain fast

Mira Bhayander, Sep 08 (ANI): Mayor Geeta Jain on Tuesday justified the decision of Mumbai's Mira Road-Bhayandar civic body to ban sale of meat during Jain fast. Jain said that initially it was decided to shut it for 18 days but since it clashed with Bakri-Id, the decision of banning sale of meat has been enforced for only eight days.

After a widely criticized beef ban in Maharashtra, residents in a part of the state will not get any meat for eight days. The slaughter and sale of meat has been temporarily banned in those areas because of a Jain festival starting later this week.
