In Kerala's Malappuram, 70% population is Muslim, while 27% Hindu. It doesn't have any restrictions on sale or consumption of beef.

With BJP coming to power in UP, there has been a crackdown on illegal slaughter houses. Following UP, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand and a few more states have tightened their norms for cow slaughter.
