    J&K MLA’s face smeared with black ink for hosting ‘beef party’

    National: A new trend of registering a protest has come to fore. This is either throwing ink on the face or smearing the facing with black ink. In another similar attack on the lines of the smearing of ink on Sudheendra Kulkarni, members of a fringe group smeared the face of Jammu and Kashmir Independent MLA Engineer Rashid with black ink in New Delhi on October 19, 2015. Earlier Jammu and Kashmir Independent MLA Engineer Rashid was also thrashed for holding a beef party in Srinagar.

    The perpetrators identifying themselves as a group named Hindu Sena claimed responsibility for the attack on Rashid. Two people from this fringe group were detained after the incident.
    “What happened to Sudheendra Kulkarni happened to me. The world should see where India stands today,” Rashid said after the attack on him in the national capital.

    Bharatiya Janata Party legislators had recently thrashed Rashid for hosting a beef party as the Jammu and Kashmir assembly grounded Opposition-backed bills aiming to overthrow a decades-old ban on cattle meat in the state.
    Lawmakers from the ruling party threw kicks and punches at Rashid a day after he reportedly served Beef Kebabs and Patties on the lawns of the State Legislators’ Hostel in protest against the prohibition on cow slaughter that has triggered debates and communal concerns in parts of the country.

    Rashid said he didn’t wish to offend anyone and hadn’t broken any rules as the Supreme Court this week suspended the colonial-era beef ban under the State’s Ranbir Penal Code (RPC) for two months after separate wings of the J&K high court gave conflicting orders on the issue.

    The Langate Legislator has been in the news for leading protests against the ban and also courted controversy when he demanded that the remains of terrorist Afzal Guru, who was executed for his involvement in the 2001 Parliament attack, be returned to his family in the Valley.
