Thiruvananthapuram: As Kerala faces one of its worst-ever calamities due to torrential rain and floods and the state is getting solidarity and support from all corners but some irresponsible people in society attributing the floods to beef eating.
Some nitizens on social media platforms uses beef as an excuse to spread hateful and bigoted viewpoint to justify the fact that Malayalis is facing God’s wrath because people there are eating beef and warn them that need to stop eating beef else will face such calamities.
The unexpected criticism especially during this dire situation sounds appalling. Here are some of the responses that were doing the rounds on Twitter.
What help? Most are working outside Kerala, in Gulf etc. Islamic organizations and Churches take good care of these Commies! Try helping them with food to survive and they will ask for beef curry. Lol https://t.co/DsHWKZIsPm

It seems to be true sir
Lord Ayyappa is angry with the Kerala Govt, as whole country knows that Communist & Congressi Workers had publicly slaughtered an innocent Calf in protest of Beef ban, cooked it publicly & feasted on its cooked beef openly on the road !

Kerala has been facing unusually high rainfall since early August, which has led to statewide floods taking several lives and causing severe damage.
The death toll continues to rise with more than two lakh people displaced and rendered homeless.
