Coming in support, Twitterati posted pictures of people having pork and said there was no ban on having any food in the state.

Kerala seems to care two hoots when it comes to the Centres policies, especially the Citizenship Amendment Act. After having passed a resolution in the Assembly against it and moving the Supreme Court by invoking Article 131, the state seems to have unintendedly taken the culinary route to protest.

Kerala Tourism (the state’s Tourism Department), famed for its God’s Own Country tagline, on Thursday (January 16) tweeted a picture of a beef dish that is a state favourite.

Kerala Tourism’s official Twitter handle posted a photo of ‘beef ularthiyathu’ (a beef fry), with a link to the recipe on their official website.

This stirred up a war of words on twitter with many taking sides – for and against. Hindu activist Rahul Easwar stated that the timing of the tweet was bad, pointing out that people across India celebrated Makara Sankranthi and Pongal.

While, others dared the official handle to post photos of pork dishes. Coming in support, Twitterati posted pictures of people having pork and said there was no ban on having any food in the state. It is to be noted that, earlier, Kerala Tourism had posted a similar pork dish picture.
