The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is facing criticism these days for including ‘halal meat’ in the diet plan of Team India. Meanwhile, Republic Media Network has spoken to meat expert Sudarshan Boosupalli who is the co-founder of meat company Meamo.

Speaking to Republic Media Network, Sudarshan Busupalli said, “There is so much scientific evidence to prove that Halal meat has no additional health benefits. Rather it is a cruel and inhuman process. In today’s world where animal welfare is a major concern, Halal should not be practiced at all where an animal undergoes pain and torture before death.”

He said- “Even Craig Johnson received the award in 2009 for his research on this issue. Last year, the European Union’s top court also backed a ban on such religious slaughter. There should be no halal in a civilized society. It is surprising to see that BCCI has fallen into the trap of false narrative.

The cricket board has reportedly banned beef and pork of any kind in the new strict diet plan for the Indian men’s cricket team. Reports also state that ‘players have been asked to consume meat in halal form’. According to reports, the purpose of making the new diet plan is to keep the players fit and healthy for the upcoming International Cricket Council (ICC) tournament.

The purpose of this is to ensure that the players do not put on too much weight before any big series which will affect their performance. The new diet was created after the T20 World Cup, where India could not qualify for the semi-finals.

What is Halal Meat?

Significantly, many social media users are criticizing the BCCI for its alleged ban on all types of meat except Halal. Many claim that ‘this is against Hindus, as eating halal meat is forbidden and against religion’. Actually, there are two ways to kill any animal – the Halal method is where the animal is cut up and left to die, and the blow method where the animal is killed in one go.
