Chandigarh October 16: While reacting to a statement published in a English daily news paper regarding beef, Haryana Chief Minister Mr Manohar Lal has denied having made any such statement and said that his words and sentiments have been distorted.
Mr Manohar Lal said that he has full devotion in the practice of ‘Sarva Dharma Sambhav’ and believes in taking ahead all sections of the society together.
When the Haryana Vidhan Sabha passed the Gau Sanrakshan Avm Gau Samwardhan Bill, 2015, all sections of the society had supported it. During the Bhartiya Muslim Gau Palak Sammelan organized recently at Mewat, the community had willingly given assurance that they would not resort to cow slaughter on any religious occasion.
We understand and respect the feelings of every religion and community in the society. He did not make any statement which would have hurt anyone’s sentiments. However, if anyone or any community has felt hurt, he regrets for the same.
