    A Tweet By Kerala Tourism On Beef Recipe Sparks Row. Read To Know Why

    The war of words refuses to die days after the official Twitter handle of Kerala Tourism shared a post about a beef dish eaten in Kerala. Called Beef Ularthiyathu, the popular traditional dish image and the recipe was tweeted by the official Kerala tourism handle on January 15th, 2020, which also happened to be Makar Sankranti, a Hindu festival.

    Kerala Tourism mentioned that Beef Ularthiyathu is a very popular meat dish in the Central Travancore region of Kerala. Calling the meat item a ‘classic’, Kerala Tourism referred to the dish as the “stuff of legends from the land of spices, Kerala”.

    However, this hasn’t gone down well with a section of social media users. The page with over 1.9 million followers soon invited ire from the rightwing social media participants alleging that the Kerala government has declared war on Hindus in the state.

    Several rightwing-inclined social media users, including MP Shobha Karandlaje, have slammed the Kerala tourism on the beef dish tweet. “Kerala communist govt have declared a war against Hindus of the state,” tweeted Karandlaje.

    However, a lot of social media users came out in support of the tweet as well. It may be beef and pork are both widely eaten in Kerala and is part of their traditional items.

    Meanwhile, Kerala Tourism Minister Kadakampally Surendran said that the government has “no interest in hurting the religious beliefs of any group,”. He said, “In Kerala, no one links food with religion.”
