Communal forces are politicising the beef festival for their selfish motives, while the fact is beef festival was also held in the past. Even the students of IFLU and Hyderabad University had organised beef festival in the past and but this time circumstances have changed due to controversial remark by BJP MLA Raja Singh against proposed Beef festival by Osmania University students. SC ST BC Muslim Front convenor Prof. Anwar Khan expressed these views addressing a press conference here. Present on the occasion were Chief Convenor Front Sanaullah Khan, Convenors Prem Kumar, Hayat Husain Habeeb, Konda Lakshman Swami, Rasheed Khan Azad.
Prof. Anwar Khan claimed that BJP is taking advantage of beef controversy to strengthen its week position in the city in view of ensuing municipal elections.
Meanwhile The Democratic Cultural Forum (DCF) of the Osmania University has decided to knock on the doors of the High Court on Wednesday to seek permission for the ‘beef festival’ on the campus on December 10.
