Debate on Maneka Gandhi’s Statement related to Makar Sankranti
Do you agree with Maneka Gandhi’s remarks that Makar Sankranti is being celebrated as ‘Festival of Animal Slaughter’ across India? Is she right in equating Makar Sankranti to Bakri Eid?
Srinibas Panda: Partially!
Deepak Kumar Prusty: Little learning is a dangerous thing….
Umasankar Sahu: I think honorable Minister Maneka Gandhi ji has lack of ground knowledge about Jallikattu, the holy festival of farmers in south Indian tradition for more than 5000 years. For details on Jallikattu, history and its benefits everything I request my friends here to see my yesterday’s article on “I SUPPORT JALLIKATTU” on my profile. And then think if Maneka Ji saying the fact or only throwing arrows to Air…”Jallikattu is not a festival of cruelty, its a festival of Farmers… Jai Hind..
Sachida Nanda Swain: This is a ridiculous statement by Maneka Gandhi! Traditions and cultures should not be mixed with politics! NEVER!
Bibhu Mohapatra: It is pathetic, but it shows lack of knowledge of Maneka Gandhi about Makar sankranti. Hindus traditionally neither eat non-veg nor slaughter animals in Sankranti.
Bharat Mishra: Maneka Gandhi often exaggerates. I ignored her article in Dharitri today. All bull shit.
Jagannath Mahapatra: No, Maneka Gandhi doesn’t know, we have to restore the true Culture, even if some wrong have enter it, our life lies there, cleaning the Culture is “Today’s Necessity”, Jai Hind!
Cartoonist Sudam Sekhar: No…. Not at all.
