    Where did you get that from ?? Nowhere is Buddhism prohibits eating meat. Even Buddha ate meat when offered, However the move by MS is a good one as everything should be done the proper way.

    The real challenge is to have something and not using it and not because it is not available. You should refrain from liquor on principle likewise you must refrain from eating meat on principle and not because it is not available.Like Kasippu in existence now there will a way crooked guys will find a way for 'hora meat' also.

    good move! animals should be transported in the right way. next should be putting a ban on three wheelers until we find a proper alternative with the right safety standards.

    This Heads of Gvt always think about their race only. They don't worry about people travelling by train and bus. This terrible experiance they don't have, because they travel by multy billion worth of vehicles. Sad story.

    What a laughable country we have become. Out of all the duties the Hon President has to perform, the most important issue the ban of cattle transport.Mr. President, there are many burning issues to be addressed rather than banning the transport of cattle.
