The mystery over Mewat biriyani in Haryana seems to be getting deeper and deeper everyday. Superintendent of police of Mewat Kuldeep Singh on Friday gave a statement that “police had collected 7 samples (of biryani)” but have not received any report yet. With the incident attracting attention from foreign media, district authorities have been cautious with their reactions on the matter. The incident once again has raised the debate about whether government should dictate one’s choice of food or not.
Mewat, a Muslim-dominated area in Haryana- the state where there is a ban on beef selling, slaughtering and consumption, came in the news when the police collected samples of biriyani and sent them for testing suspecting these may contain cow meat.
Following a complaint, authorities in the district collected seven samples of biryani from shopkeepers and vendors in the Ferozpur Jhirka area. They had received a complaint that beef was being added to the dish.
Meanwhile, after the complaint, police and cow vigilantes in Mundaka village here are keeping close vigil to avoid any such incident in view of Eid.
