India ready for Ahimsa meat: Maneka Gandhi

NEW DELHI, AUG 25 (AGENCIES) | Publish Date: 8/25/2018 12:48:15 PM IST

Union Minister for Women and Child Development Maneka Gandhi said meat grown in a laboratory from animal cells, or “clean meat”, may help solve the problem of lynching, assault and intimidation by cow protection groups, which is creating “a pervasive air of violence”.

“It is the most important thing to create alternative sources of meat,” Gandhi said, according to The New Indian Express. “We must have clean meat...People are being lynched for taking cows for slaughter. Why this terror?” Maneka was speaking at a seminar on ‘Future of Protein Summit’ at Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology, Hyderabad.

Gandhi said a private survey found that 66% consumers are ready to accept lab-grown “ahimsa” meat taken from animal cells and that top IT giants were investing in clean meat technology, Times of India reported. She also said people should opt for lab-grown meat since methane released by animals is the biggest contributor to global warming.
