MUM­BAI: A plea chal­leng­ing the com­plete ban on cow, bull and bul­lock slaugh­ter in the state, on the ground that it vi­o­lates re­li­gious rights of Mus­lims, was turned down by the Bom­bay HC.

The divi­sion bench of jus­tice Ab­hay Oka and jus­tice SC Gupte turned down the con­tention say­ing, “A prac­tice fol­lowed may be a re­li­gious prac­tice. But, if it is not an essen­tial or in­te­gral part of the re­li­gion, it is not pro­tected by Ar­ti­cle 25 of the Con­sti­tu­tion.”
