Zubeen Garg had earlier said, “I heard that Bollywood actor Govinda had sacrificed a buffalo. I would say learn to sacrifice yourself. Maa Kamakhya never seeks any sacrifice. I have always spoken against animal sacrifice. It should be stopped.”

Sarma added, “Zubeen is a respected and very popular musician. He should stay away from making such remarks. We don’t appreciate such remarks which can hurt religious sentiments.”

Zubeen, who has been trolled on social media for his comment, remained unfazed. “This is my personal opinion. I don’t appreciate animal sacrifice. That’s it,” he told the media on Tuesday.
