‘Ban’ is the word which we are hearing each and every day and now it is the time for Vegetables to be banned. Yes, people are now protesting to ban vegetables. A Bangalore based filmmaker Falah Faisal has come up with an unusual reason for appealing for a ban of vegetables. Faisal had approached in his way to get back at the government for imposing meat ban in several cities, citing the Jain festival of Paryushan which was opposed by many people in India.
“With the meat ban being enforced on us due to various religious reasons, I think it is only right for us minorities to have a say,” posted in the petition. Faisal had also posted on Twitter that the petition is a ‘political mischief’ and is managing to get loads of supporters. Faisal suggested an alternative to banning vegetables: “everyone in the country, irrespective of religious beliefs partakes in the consumption of mutton (biryani) on that day.”
“You can come over to my house. I don’t mind sharing.” The ban of vegetables also gives the hardworking Indian farmers a day of much deserves a rest. So far, more than 200 people have signed the petition. Faisal, who is also a filmmaker has previously made a short film called India’s Mother – A Mockumentary, a parody on the beef ban in India.
The reinstatement of the age-old meat ban during the Jain festival of Paryushan this year in Mumbai has soon followed by Bengaluru, where the sale of meat was prohibited on Ganesha Chaturthi. –
