Nikhila, who won the internet recently for her controversial remark, was in Dubai for the promotion for her recent movie Jo and Jo.
The internet has been divided over the actress’s comment with some praising Nikhila’s strong stand on slaughtering of cows while some others unleashing attack on cyber space.
Nikhila asserted that if animal welfare was everyone's concern, then no animal in the country should be slaughtered.
Five men have been arrested for alleged cow slaughter so far, while no arrest has been made in the murder and assault case.
In recent years angry mobs have lynched many people from marginalised groups, especially Muslims and the Dalits, often over suspicions of cow slaughter.
