‘Halal’ Vs ‘Haram’ Meat, New Controversy Plagues BCCI

New Delhi: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has banned beef and pork in any form in Team India’s new diet regime. It has also been learned that the players have been asked to consume meat in only halal form.

“According to the new dietary plan of the Indian cricket team, players aren’t allowed to eat pork and beef in any form and variety in order to keep themselves fit and healthy,” read a Sports Tak report.

India is playing its first Test against New Zealand in Kanpur on Thursday.

“If anyone wants to have meat then it should be only in halal form, players can’t eat any other form of meat whatsoever,” it added.

The cricket world is divided. Irked by the BCCI’s decision to ban all forms of meat except ‘Halal’ a section claims it to be hurting the sentiments of the Hindu community. On the other hand, Muslims prefer ‘Halal’ meat over any other form.

As per the report, the board has introduced the new diet plan to ensure players remain fit and healthy for the upcoming events. Here’s how Twitter reacted over the entire issue:

While the BCCI is yet to give clarification on the issue, here’s what social media says.
