Malayali community in Delhi protest against police ‘raid’

New Delhi, Oct 28 (IANS) At least 100 people from Delhi’s Malayali community on Wednesday staged a protest here to condemn police ‘raid’ at Kerala House on a complaint that beef was being served here.

“Delhi Police raided Kerala House. This is not acceptable. Delhi Police chief Bassi did his duty but he should also see that no trouble is caused to the general public,” Delhi Malayali Association general secretary C. Chandran said.

The representatives of Student Federation of India (SFI) also took part in the protest outside Kerala House here.

The protesters shouted slogans like ‘right to food is right to live’ and displayed placards reading ‘intolerance to the culture and tradition of others is a cancer now’.

SFI president Sivadasan said: “This is not just a question of beef eating. This is against the culture.”

On Monday, some 20 policemen ‘raided’ the Kerala House after the a fringe right-wing outfit Hindu Sena alleged that beef (cow meat) was being served in its premises.

Later, it turned out that carabeef (buffalo meat) was being served in the Kerala House canteen.

On Wednesday, the menu board at the canteen had the dish listed as ‘Meat Fry and Meat Curry (Buffalo)’.
