His comments came after the recent spate of incidents of violence against Muslims across the country over rumours of consuming beef.

“It is possible that in a big country like India that there are divergent views. But there has to be a proper way of discussing and debating these views,” he said at a press conference here.

Jaitley said that the “level of debate must be raised” rather than the use of vandalism.

“We all have to convey differences in a restrained manner..,” he said.

“It is disturbing when these acts of vandalism are increasingly publicised. People are encouraged to use similar methods,” he said.

Jaitley said there are some “sensitive issues” such as “the relationship between communities, Jammu and Kashmir and neighbouring countries. Everyone should be careful.”

He said that no member of the Bharatiya Janata Party “resorted to such methods”.

“The party president has strongly taken it up. The prime minister conveyed his views, all of them have been spoken,” he added, referring to party president Amit Shah, on behalf of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, pulling up party leaders and parliament members for making controversial statements over beef consumption.

  1. Mr. Arun Jaintly, your leader is keeping too quite without addressing many urgently important issues facing the nation, thus the jobless street goons have their heyday to carry on the vandalism like a football game.

    300 million Dalits, 173 million Muslims, 33 million Christians, Sikh religious people, Buddhists etc consume beef; besides now Hindus are consuming beef. Why did the President of India sign beef-ban in two States of India? See the skyrocketing inflation in the food price all across India. Did the 31% of the electorate of India vote for the BJP to introduce national beef-ban as the 1st step in the march towards economic revolution and aachi din?

    The BJP Governments, both in New Delhi and in many other States have created this problem, now there is no need in shedding tears about vandalism. The mad dog is out of the cage.

      • It is true that Hindus were consuming beef for very long time, but now the number has considerably increased among the Hindus the consumption of beef; especially those Hindus who are landing in the foreign countries. Many Hindu movie stars have already indicated that they consume beef. Thank you for your response.
