Shocking! Pakistan sends Beef to Nepal for Survivors

Kathmandu, April 30: Pakistan drew flak for adding salt to the injuries of survivors in quake-hit Nepal by supplying beef as food for them. The international media, which has been batting for liberalism and humanity, seems to be silent on this issue.

While aid, supports and condolences are pouring in from across the world for the quake victims in Nepal, such thing triggered outrage among the survivors, who are battling to live losing their families, properties, relatives and everything in the disaster. The packets carrying beef masala along with potato and bhujia were spotted in relief material sent from Pakistan to Nepal.

The help from Pakistan in form of supplying beef masala as food item to the survivors has left the Hindu country shocked. Cow is mother and she is worshipped by Hindus. It can be noted that cow slaughter and beef is banned in Nepal, the lone Hindu country in the world. Cow slaughter is a punishable act with 12 years in prison. Earlier, there was death penalty for violation of the law in Nepal.

However, sending beef to the survivors has hurt religious sentiment. This is a condemnable act by Pakistan and can trigger diplomatic row between Nepal and Pakistan.

Reacting to incident, RSS called it highly sensitive. Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev also condemned this and questioned the intention of Pakistan behind sending beef to a Hindu country during such crisis.

The death toll in Nepal, which was ravaged by strong quakes on Saturday, has crossed 6000. More than 10,000 were wounded and over 80 lakh people were affected in the disaster.
