Upananda Brahmachari | Haridwar | HENB | Oct 11, 2015:: Muslims kill cows and consume beef or anybody does it in India, simply commit a crime against the existing law of land. As per information 23 States and UTs have their own law or regulations for the ban or restrictions on cow slaughter. There are 29 States and 7 Union Territories (including Delhi NCR) in India.
In the Directive principles of Indian constitution, there is clear mention for cow protection. Art 48. says, “Organisation of agriculture and animal husbandry The State shall endeavour to organise agriculture and animal husbandry on modern and scientific lines and shall, in particular, take steps for preserving and improving the breeds, and prohibiting the slaughter, of cows and calves and other milch and draught cattle”.
But, for the appeasement of Muslims and vote bank policies, the framed laws and regulations in the Indian States are rampantly violated in the contexts of cow slaughter and cow protection inter alia. Apart from hurting Hindus sentiments (as Hindus have a highest faith and veneration for cows and treated cow as mother goddess) on cow slaughter, the perpetrators of it never mind the ‘prohibition of animal cruelty act’ or ‘pollution control acts’ in this row.
The recent concoctions about ‘Beef Ban’, ‘Dadri lynch’ or the ‘Mainpuri violence’ in Indian are aimed to wash out the existing rules and regulations on ban on cow slaughter in India and to jeopardize conventional Indian agro economy by destroying the sustainable resources of Cow progeny.
The pseudo secular elements in Indian politics and media never raise their voice while huge pollution made by illegal and violent ‘Cow slaughter’ depraving the national policy of ‘Clean India Movement’ (Swacch Bharat Abhiyan). A huge pollution comes out daily from 30,000 illegal and unlicensed abattoirs in India.
But, the media morons and the political zealots are blindfolded by the Islamists not to realise the gravity of the following rules and regulation so far.

While most of the Indian States treat cow slaughter illegal and punishable, then why this uproar when Hindus want to protect the law of the land and why so silence while Muslims violate the law!
