Why Beef and Pork Food Festival at JNU?

The New Materialists

Comrades, we have recently seen the Janmastami celebrations in JNU by right wing and casteist forces i.e. ABVP and NSUI in many places of JNU. Celebration of the Hindu festivals (in the name of celebrating Culture) is the act of enhancing and strengthening the caste system. Krishna, the god of Hindus who propagated Varna system in Bhagavad Gita and was an eve teaser and womanizer was celebrated and was shown as role model though he was the symbol of Patriarchy. Thus Celebrating Janmastami is the celebration of patriarchy and Varna system.

When the Durga pooja celebration was made as a proposal there was a tough resistance from the progressive forces. But now the scenario has changed. Every party engaged in vote bank politics does not want to raise the issue of celebrating Hindu festivals in the supposed Secular campus, where even the Bhang (prepared from the leaves of Cannabis plant, which is banned in many countries) is allowed in mess during Holi. If this is the case, why no Beef and Pork is available in any single dhaba at JNU?
