    I support Modi govt but Modiji please take care of pseudo science spewing supporters of yours. Personally I would say that we too abstain from meat on a few days and we hardly eat red meat. However the explanations given by Modiji`s supporter is really baffling.

    Contrary to popular belief,meat,chicken and eggs are very good for health as it helps in preventing lean muscle loss because animal meat has all the necessary proteins unlike vegetables and cereals which are an incomplete source of protein.

    My problem is not with eating meat but with the lies being spread in the name of religion.

    HRD ministry seeks IITs, IIMs’ views on veg, non-veg canteens

    MUMBAI: The Union human resource development ministry has written to the premier IITs and the IIMs to seek their opinion on setting up separate canteens for vegetarians. The ministry has forwarded around five letters, written in chaste Hindi by a group that has sought such a bifurcation, to the institutes.
    Closer home in IIT-Bombay, for instance, non-vegetarian food is already being cooked separately, though it is served in the same mess, said officials. An official added all the letters had demanded separate eating spaces for vegetarian students. Their contention was that a common eating area could make vegetarians uncomfortable.
    Students at the Powai campus, though, denied any discomfort and called the demand "not very legitimate". A student associated with the hostel committee said, "There has never been any such complaint from any hostel. There was a demand from some hostels for a separate eating area in the same mess, and that was provided."
    He added that messes and canteens are a different concept at IIT-B. While messes are primarily vegetarian, non-vegetarian food is served on student demand twice or three times a week. It is cooked and served separately in any case, he said. "There has never been a demand for a separate block for vegetarians and non-vegetarians," said one. Canteens are eateries where students have to buy food, both vegetarian and non-vegetarian.
    "We understand the need for separate counters for vegetarians and this has already been done. The demand for a totally separate canteen is unnecessary and even staunch vegetarians have adjusted to the current setting," said a fourth-year student.
    "Most students on campus are very liberal and hence these are usually not issues that concern them. Food in the hostel mess is generally vegetarian and is served on separate counters and I do not know of any student who has raised an objection to this," he said.

    (The HRD ministry has written to the IITs and IIMs to seek their opinion on setting up separate canteens for vegetarians.)
    U A Yajnik, dean, IIT-B students affairs, said his office has not received the letter. He, though, said food is cooked in a separate section in the same mess. "It is not feasible to have separate blocks, but the current system is working fine," said Yajnik. IIT-Bombay director Devang Khakhar said the mess was managed by students. An official from another IIT said the letter does not ask institutes to act on the request made by the group, but only that it be "considered".

    Re: HRD ministry seeks IITs, IIMs’ views on veg, non-veg canteens

    India is today is a country where the various distinctions that segregates the society is diminishing.

    Therefore, such a demand for segregations seem astonishingly odd.

    Further, to run separate canteens will add to the overheads and that will be passed onto those patronising the canteens. Then there will be the clamour that the prices are exorbitant!

    Surely, these so called 'strict' vegetarians do visit dhabas/ roadside eateries and even restaurants. If they do, then what is the guarantee that the ladle used to stir and prepare the vegetarian food has not be used for stirring the non vegetarian items being also cooked?

    It is just another stunt.

    Next they will ask segregated canteens for various castes and then various religious demnomination.

    The ridiculous demands will never end.

    It is silly of the Govt to respond to such frivolous demands in a country that is desperately trying to modernise.

    Re: HRD ministry seeks IITs, IIMs’ views on veg, non-veg canteens

    There is nothing ridiculous about it.

    Even in 90s Engineering College at Manipal had separate Mess for Vegetarian food and Non Vegetarian food. They even had a mess which served eggs but not chicken/mutton.

    My father is a pure vegetarian and till date he would not like even eggs to be stored in his refrigerator. This is just making a mountain out of a mole hill. If there is a demand for a separate Vegetarian mess then it should be made. The students of IITs should take a call on this.

    Re: HRD ministry seeks IITs, IIMs’ views on veg, non-veg canteens

    And at what fees are those in Manipal college getting admission?

    And what is the cost of meals?

    Economics.

    Check that with IITs and IIMs and the subsidies thereof.
    http://www.iitp.ac.in/index.php/academics/programmes/undergraduate/fee-structure.html

    Why should there also not be separate Messes for Hallal and Jhatka mutton/ chicken eaters?

    There are many who would find it revolting to eat Hallal and vice versa.

    And what about a separate Mess for Muslims and a separate one for the Hindus and a separate one for the Christians and why not a separate Mess for those who eat Jain food?

    In one's own house, one can do what one likes. That is not the point.

    If these demands are right, then there should be such segregation in all its avatar for all eateries around the nation and a law should be passed.

    Rational?

    Time for trectory correction.

    Every citizen has a right of approaching govt about his complaints. Govt HAS to do something. Govt mostly forwards the complaint to the concerned authority. It has been done. Mind you, so far the genuineness is not an issue. The concerned authority may accept it as genuine or reject it.

    Stop the tirades against Modi, RSS, veggies and all others.

    Unlike the popular perception, the Govt is not a post office.

    They have competent people who analyse issues and then route it to other agencies, if they do not want to act on it unilaterally.
