BJP Leader Says Brahmins Ate Beef Before India Became An Agrarian Country, Then Retracts Comment: [] "Before India became an agrarian country, there are examples where all communities including Brahmins have slaughtered cows for consumption," he said on a Kannada news channel during a panel discussion on the Centre's notification banning sale and purchase of cattle at animal markets for slaughter.
