He also asked whether Hindus are not eating meat. The RJD chief said that some of those living in foreign countries or visit abroad eat beef and even in the country, some Hindus eat beef.

“What is the difference between beef and mutton for those who consume meat,” Lalu asked, prompting senior BJP leader and Union Minister Griraj Singh to ask him to take back his words.
