The Maharashtra government has banned cow slaughter, and several celebrities turned to Twitter to vent their ire.

Richa Chadha: I am a vegetarian. And banning beef is communal politics.

Farhan Akhtar: So now in Maharashtra you can have a beef with someone but you can't have beef with someone.

Vir Das: Dear Govt. With beef, let's ban teeth. We can live on vegetable smoothies and this way your politicians can't make hate speeches anymore.

Arjun Kapoor: So we can't think what we want. We can't speak what we want. We can't do what we want and now we can't eat what we want...YAY democracy!!!!!
