On September 28, 2015 an announcement was made from a local temple in Uttar Pradesh’s Bisada village that Mohammed Akhlaq and his family were consuming beef. After the announcement, a mob of 200 people dragged Akhlaq out of his house and killed him which led to communal tension in the village.

He said, “Who does not know what had happened in Bisahda? Everybody knows it. How shamefully the Samajwadi Party government tried to suppress the sentiments then and I can say as soon as our government was formed we got all illegal slaughter houses stopped in one go and ensured its strict implementation.”
