Moradabad: Days after the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath banned illegal slaughterhouses in the state, a Muslim man was denied permission to serve buffalo meat at his daughter's engagement ceremony in Moradabad district.

Sarfaraz Hussain told CNN-News18 that he had written to the local police seeking permission to slaughter a buffalo at his house, in order to serve meat to the guests at the ceremony, but it was denied. Instead, the police advised him to serve chicken instead of buffalo meat in the function.

In the letter it has been mentioned, that the ceremony was scheduled to be held on March 26 at BK marriage hall in Peerzada locality. In fact, the slaughterhouses are not operational in the district from March 23 following the government’s crackdown on the same, it added.
