Leonardo Di Caprio’s star power is being used by Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, the Hindu nationalist group to ban beef.

The Chief of RSS, Mohan Bhagwat is all set to take the campaign to an international platform by organising a massive rally in the UK with more than ten thousand Hindus attending, and the Wolf of Wall Street star is in full support.

While the RSS’ step toward banning beef in India is driven by religious factors, DiCaprio’s concern is towards animal rights and the environment.

The Great Gatsby star has become an influential figure in raising awareness about the climate change crisis.

Leo being vegan, has also produced a new cut of Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret, which features how animal agriculture is a fundamental cause of environmental damage.

Sir Richard Branson, founder of Virgin group and David Attenbourough, a naturalist are also joining hands with the RSS and will be attending the anti-beef movement alongside Leo.

The rally will take place at the golden jubilee event on July 31.
