Buffalo meat issue: Mazar allegedly built on encroached forest dept land, MLA calling for govt’s action while some villagers try to protect it

Reports say that while some of the villagers in Salat have 'forgiven' the perpetrators behind the buffalo meat incident, some are still angry over it and are considering the MLA's proposal to meet the CM.

Almost two weeks after the controversial event where Hindus were served buffalo meat at the ‘Urs’ event in Mohoba’s Salat village, some Hindu villagers are reportedly planning to meet UP CM Yogi Adityanath when he tours Chitrakoot today.

As per a report in Amar Ujala, local MLA Brijbhushan Rajpoot has urged the villagers to meet and discuss the issue with the CM. The Salat village in Mahoba area was in the news when local Hindus, who donate money for a ‘Mazar’ in the village and participate in the annual ‘Urs’, were outraged after they were served buffalo meat in this year’s Urs.

On August 31, the Hindus were served biriyani laced with buffalo meat at the annual Urs. Reports stated that Hindus in the village actively participate in the event every year and vegetarian dishes are cooked for them. But the organisers of the event admitted that the ‘buffalo meat’ found in the ‘Baba ka Prasad’ was a mistake.

Following the outrage, cases were registered against 43 people who were a part of the organising team. Charkhari MLA Brijbhushan Rajpoot has been pursuing the issue and had insisted the government’s action on the case.

As per reports, the Mazar of the Peer Baba is on encroached forest land and recently, the DFO had reached there with a team to demolish the illegal boundary wall. Local villagers, including Hindus, who are a majority in the village, allegedly opposed the demolition. The DFO has stated that the Mazar itself is quite old but the boundary was recently built on forest land.

Reports stated that it was mostly the Hindus of the village who had donated money for the construction of the Mazar. The organisers of the Urs are reportedly protesting against the forest department’s move to examine the records and demolish the boundary.

Reports say that while some of the villagers in Salat have ‘forgiven’ the perpetrators behind the buffalo meat incident, some are still angry over it and are considering the MLA’s proposal to meet the CM.

MLA Brijbhushan Rajpoot has stated that the Mazar has been built on forest land and he is waiting to see if the boundary wall is demolished as per departmental order on 14 September.
