Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India’s civic body releases directives to remove non-vegetarian food from main roads.
In November 2021, Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC)’s Estate Department issued an oral order banning stalls and food carts selling non-vegetarian food from public roads as well as those operating within a 100-meter radius of schools, marriage halls, community halls, and religious places.
The AMC’s town-planning committee chairman, Devang Dani, said, “…action should be taken considering the impact it has on people’s health.” Earlier, the municipal corporations of Vadodara, Rajkot, Junagadh, and Bhavnagar in Gujarat had ordered shopkeepers and hawkers to cover non-vegetarian food, including eggs, as they injure religious sentiments of Hindus.
Thank you, Devang Dani and the AMC, for your courageous, exemplary leadership to protect institutes of learning, spiritual areas, and the public from animal-people foods. May all governments worldwide follow your compassionate steps to end the killing and selling of animal-people permanently, in the Divine’s eternal glory.
