To counter #MeatBan, this man files petition for #VeggieBan on Bakr-Eid

Here comes a ban all meat lovers were probably waiting for. After #BeefBan and #MeatBan, can we now ban vegetables? Because as Falah Faisal, the upright citizen who has filed the petition says, 'plants have feelings too'.

After meat was banned in Maharashtra, Gujarat, Rajasthan, and Haryana during the three-day Jain festival of Paryushan, there was massive outrage across the nation. Can the government tell you what to eat? Clearly they can, but the mango people will always find a way to fight back.

Says Falah in his petition: "If you are someone who is a vegetarian who doesn't eat anything but the offshoot of plants, I bet you can starve for a day. Fasting is good for you. We do it for a month every year.You might ask what we might cook our meat with if not vegetables? Or that I might need mashed potatoes on the side of my steak. But it is only a day guys. I bet we can pull through.

And think about it. If we don't eat vegetables for a day, we just have more on the next day. The ban provides for itself. It also gives the hardworking Indian farmers a day of much deserves rest."

The tongue-in-cheek write up begs the government of India to be fair and declares that if meat-eaters must give up their food for a day, vegetarians can do the same. Moreover, he declares that due to the rising pesticide levels in our veggies, giving it up for a day will keep you healthy too.

This man is willing to generously give up his portion of veggies this Bakr-Eid for the sake of 'balance'. Are you?
