The Madhya Pradesh Gau-Vansh Vadh Pratishedh (Sanshodhan) Vidheyak might seem as bad as it gets for meat eaters, religious minorities or defenders of civil liberties. This amendment, to an already draconian Cow Slaughter Prevention Act, allows any person empowered by the authorities to enter and search a place on suspicion of beef being consumed there, puts the burden of proving the prosecution wrong on the accused and increases the penalty from three to seven years.

New York City: A lot of unusual things happen beneath the surface here. You don’t notice most of them until someone points them out. Madani Halal slaughterhouse is a great example; it’s down a backstreet in a little-known neighborhood in Queens.Every day, folks line up around the corner to choose their own live chicken or goat, watch it get slaughtered, and then take it home for dinner. In this video, we meet Imran Uddin, who left a career in corporate advertising to run the business his father started in 1996. He shows us the process and talks about how the business attracts working-class people looking for a lesser-known alternative to grocery store meat. WARNING: This video is a little graphic. » read more
