Kolkata (West Bengal) [India], July 28 (ANI): West Bengal Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) vice president and Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose's grandnephew Chandra Kumar Bose on Saturday remained firm on his Mahatma Gandhi-goat tweet.
Bose earlier tweeted that Hindus should shun mutton as Mahatma Gandhi considered "goat as mother".
Speaking to ANI, Bose said, "One has to understand the subtlety of my tweet. The entire nation is shocked to see the kind of violence and lynchings that are taking place across the country. The responsibility of political parties and governments is to ensure that law and order is maintained. Mr Nehru (Jawahar Lal Nehru) and Mahatma Gandhi when they used to stay in our house, they used to have some specific demands. One such demand was to be given goat's milk. So, my grandfather brought two goats and Gandhiji was served goats milk."
He further advised people that one should also stop eating goat meat because Gandhi Ji used to drink goat milk.
"If you attack people for consuming beef then you should also stop consuming goat because Mahatma Gandhi used to drink goat milk. And if you drink goats' milk, you treat goat as your mother. Religion must not be mixed up with politics," he added. (ANI)
