The propagation of internal electromagnetic waves in an inviscid chiral fluid in the presence of the external constraint of transverse magnetic field is investigated. These waves are shown to be generated due to the stabilizing nature of the distribution of charge density. It is shown that the effect of the external constraint of magnetic field in a chiral fluid is analogous to the effect of viscosity in ordinary fluids. The wave equation, derived from the conservation ofmass and momentum together with Maxwell’s equations and suitable auxiliary equations for chiral materials, reveals the existence of a critical level (i.e., resonance level) at which the Doppler shifted frequency
