Mumbai, India bans meat four days

Officials in Mumbai have imposed a four day ban on the slaughter and sale of meat. The ban was introduced after increasing pressure from the vegetarian Jain community - a financially very powerful community in the Indian state of Maharashtra.

The motive is a Jain religious fast in September where non-violence towards all living being should be respected.

A beef ban that we reported on earlier this year caused a major debate between the supporters and those opposing regulating meat consumption and sale.
