As Kerala is facing the worst rainfall since 1924, millions remain stranded in the state trying to save themselves from nature’s fury. Kerala floods have come as the worst-ever disasters caused due to torrential rains in the state. Though the state is receiving financial support from all corners of the country, the damage caused by these floods have thousands of families losing their everything from people to property. With over 357 deaths being reported from the state so far, hundreds of people are still without the basic necessitates for survival.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has promised an aid worth Rs 500 crore to the devastated state with more helicopters, boats and other equipment being put to action for rescue and relief work in Kerala. Apparently, he has taken an aerial tour of the worst-affected areas in the state as well. While the state receiving help from many parts of the globe, there are some people in the society who are attributing the Kerala floods to ‘beef eating’.
Well, you read that right! Apparently, there are some insensitive people on the social media who have the most unexpected responses to the Kerala floods. These people are reasoning the Kerala floods with the eating habits of the people in the state.
According to them, Keralites are facing the wrath of the God in the face of the floods for eating beef. Many tweeted to say that Kerala deserved the floods because the state did not ban the consumption of beef and this has spurred the gods causing the devastating floods. With their ugly tweets, they are asking the Malayalis to stop eating beef or else they will face such calamities again in the future.
You will definitely be surprised after reading these tweets by the netizens on the apparent cause of Kerala floods:
mallus stop eating beef there won’t be any floods for next 150 years in kerala

It seems to be true sir
Lord Ayyappa is angry with the Kerala Govt, as whole country knows that Communist & Congressi Workers had publicly slaughtered an innocent Calf in protest of Beef ban, cooked it publicly & feasted on its cooked beef openly on the road !

What kind of justice is this?
Kerala is paying the price for Eating Beef to show off to the Gallery. Nature’s Natural Justice.

And then this comment!
Also most conversions happen in kerala. Changing religion is the biggest sin committed by an individual. All these and many more sins like beef eating has caused such harms in kerala.

While my sympathies are with people of Kerala but i remember for the sake of Beef Parties cows & Calves were killed. So don’t expect the nature to bless you. – https://t.co/ohkcq1CgHd

In retaliation for these insensitive comments, social media users are slamming the religious haters who are blaming the consumption of beef for the state of Kerala floods. Take a look at some comments:
I wonder what was the reason for Earthquake of Gujarat & Flood of Kedarnath, as per their theory…!

Those people who are saying Kerala deserves this bc we are “beef eaters” and we “eat your gods” how freaking dare you! You are disgusting! Having religious diversity in our state is not a bad thing at all. Shut your mouth if you arent going to help 🙄

Howsoever people’s mentality is not going to change towards sensitive issues. But we must do our share of work. We must help and support the people stuck in the Kerala floods because it is what humanity has taught us!
