Air India Magazine Says Jagannath Temple Serves Non-Vegetarian Dishes, Chaos Ensues

It's article headlined 'Devotion can be delicious' said, "Said to be the largest in the country, the Jagannath Temple's kitchen in Puri since its inception has had an army of 500 cooks and 300 helpers to serve 1,00,000 people every day, round the clock - which means almost 285 varieties of vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes every day."
This article has created hue and cry in the state. Intellectuals and devotees of the Lord Jagannath condemned this.
