‘Drop beef film’

The organisers of an Indian film festival said Friday the government had pressured them to drop a documentary on the beef industry, amid a heated debate about beef eating in the majority-Hindu country.

Officially secular India is the world’s biggest exporter of beef, but the slaughter of cows — which Hindus consider holy — has long been contentious.

Organisers said the documentary, called “Caste on the Menu Card”, was the sole film of 35 submitted to the Information and Broadcasting ministry they did not clear, ahead of the Friday opening of the Jeevika: Asia Livelihood Documentary Festival in New Delhi. (AFP)
