New Delhi: Former Press Council of India chairperson Justice (retired) Markandey Katju is known for his frequent statements and Twitter posts which have raised quite a bit of dust in the recent past.
He had once said that 90% Indians were idiots, being gullible and easily swayed by religious influences.
In his latest tweet, he has said, “I am a Hindu, and I have eaten beef, and will again eat it. There is nothing wrong in beef eating. 90% of the world eats beef. Are they all sinners? And I refuse to believe that cow is sacred or our mother. How can an animal be a mother of a human being? That is why I say 90% Indians are idiots. Mr Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi included.”
The post is likely to attract both likes and dislikes in large numbers.
