The crackdown on illegal slaughter houses imposed by the Yogi Adityanath-led Uttar Pradesh government has taken a casualty that many are saddened by – the shutting down of Tunday Kebabs of Lucknow for a day due to unavailability of meat.
Even after the restaurant reopened the following day, one of the most popular beef delicacies was missing from the menu, causing fans of the nostalgic eatery a degree of heartburn. It triggered a flurry of responses from both supporters of the crackdown, and detractors.
There are those who maintain that while the absence of some Tunday kebab from the culinary circuit might not be a cause of worry in itself, the ban is symptomatic of a bigger problem.
First they came for Tunday Kebab...— Abhishek Upadhya (@_logik) March 23, 2017
Sad that Tunda kebabs cannot be savoured after 70 years . Essential part of our diverse culture . Enemies of our heritage have taken over .— Kapil Sibal (@KapilSibal) March 24, 2017
The opinions did not stay confined to simply the ban, but extended to the Uttar Pradesh chief minister and the general political scenario of the country.

After cow, you cant eat buffalo meat. Next they will come for mutton. Soon, the only slaughter that will be allowed will be of Muslims.— Shivam Vij (@DilliDurAst) March 23, 2017
Go get those who set meat shops on fire overnight instead of sniffing around colleges and malls in the name of 'anti Romeo squads' #Priority— Harinder Baweja (@shammybaweja) March 22, 2017
What’s the Big Deal?
The crackdown on illegal slaughterhouses has not led to any deaths (yet). It has saved the lives of many animals, if anything.
Any death connected to Tunday kebab shutting down?— Vinay (@vbghia) March 24, 2017
Thus, it was concluded that the ban is something people can live with.
Funny "Tunday kebab" made with buffalo meat is being portrayed as staple diet of people living in Uttar Pradesh.— SuperStar।। योगी ।। (@rajsan2016) March 24, 2017
People died following demonetisation and that was alright. So of course the country can live without slaughterhouses too. Besides, it’s only buffalo meat, isn’t it?
Report On Real News, Journalists
The Indian media is full of anti-nationalists, sloths and fact-fabricators.

What a fall for so called Journalists
Media is angry with Yogi shutting illegal slaughterhouses as they fear their offices, where facts are slaughtered daily, maybe shut down too— The-Lying-Lama (@KyaUkhaadLega) March 21, 2017
@BDUTT one tunday kebab shop closed for half an hour is a national news....shame on media!!!!— sachin verma (@sachin1206) March 24, 2017
Tunday kebab not available for one hour got much more media attention than Kashmiri Pandit's got for their 27 years of exodus from homeland— Kolahoi (@PawanDurani) March 23, 2017
Therefore it was concluded they should find other topics and more important news to occupy themselves with.
Taking Comfort in Humour
Some took repose in laughing at the developments that are garnering so much anguised attention.

Down With Kebabs, Down with Muslims... and Terrorism Too
Some responses implied that kebabs and Muslims are synonymous, along with terrorism, and hence, down with all of them.

Animal Love FTW
Needless to say, one group that is particularly happy about this are the animal lovers. Fewer animals killed is, at least, a nice thing.
