People have been accused of marketing halal meat on BCCI, and the hashtag #BCCI Promotes Halal has been trending on social media since Tuesday morning. Some BJP spokespersons have also weighed in on the topic, criticising the BCCI. In a tweet, BJP spokesman Gaurav Goel stated that the BCCI should not promote Halal. In another tweet, he stated that the BCCI should remember that it is based in India, not Pakistan.
Dear @BCCI, Say No To Halal. India is a Secular Democratic Country, not an Islamic Country.

The first Test between India and New Zealand has arrived in Kanpur. Even before the test began, details about the meal menu surfaced. This meal keeps pork and beef separate. Non-vegetarian recipes will include halal meat. Some Twitter users argued that because halal meat is only required for Muslims, it should not be made mandatory for all Indian players. Some Twitter users believe the BCCI is putting the country in danger by making this decision.
