Democracy means respect belief, personal ideas, religion of minority. If you don´t want eat beef I respect that but you cannot prohibit somebody who wants. This is democracy.
If eating beef provoke somebody means that person have problem. In India exist theocracy not democracy. This sad case show how religion still have big influence to Indian society. Please grow up!!!

Instead of provocating majority students in the university. The university is not a place to build your body but mind. Mind it!

If handful of people want pork and majority opposes it what is “UNDEMOCRATIC” about it ?

It is a fact that beef eating was mentioned in Rig Veda, the oldest pre Hinduism Vedic literature. The cow slowly became a sort of currency in India, Gau Dhan as it was called. As Vedic religion changed to Hinduism and the ancient civilization became more mature if not corrupt, Hindus, the upper caste Hindus started venerating the cows and beef eating almost vanished from the upper strata of caste hierarchy. The depressed castes with their familial trade associated with labor continued to eat beef in India.

Asking for beef in community center is like an Oriental student asking for real hot Dog in American community center. It’s just plain politics where beef is being used by Dalit students to show their resurgence.
