Upananda Brahmachari | HENB | Patiala | Aug 8, 2016:: After being booked by Punjab police for allegedly assaulting some persons on pretext of cow protection, Gau Raksha Dal Chief Satish Kumar accused PM Modi for indulging in vote bank politics. This comes a day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked the states to act against “fake” cow protectors.
An FIR was lodged on the basis of some video clips which appeared on social media, showing Gau Raksha Dal members brutally thrashing people, SSP Gurmeet Chauhan said today. The Punjab Gau Raksha Dal is active in both field works in Cow Protection and the social media for a long time.
A case under sections 382 (Theft after preparation made for causing death), 384 (Punishment for extortion), 341 (Punishment for wrongful restraint), along with sections 148 (Rioting, armed with deadly weapon) and 149 (Unlawful assembling) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) was registered, police said.
Kumar, who is yet to be arrested, said he has no information regarding the case.
He alleged that the Prime Minister’s remarks against cow vigilantism were motivated by “votebank politics” due to upcoming elections in many states including Punjab, Uttar Pradesh and Gujarat.
“The PM’s statement is politically motivated. It is one-sided. If he had warned the butchers not to slaughter or smuggle cow, then his statement would have been justified.
“He is doing vote bank politics to get the butchers’ vote,” Kumar said.
He said the police were free to arrest him.
The Prime Minister’s statement denouncing cow vigilantism came after a string of incidents of attacks on Dalits, including in Una, Gujarat where some youths were brutally assaulted for skinning a dead cow.
“There are so many persons from Dalit community in the Gau Raksha Dal in Punjab and other state units. We work together for the protection of cows. There is no difference of Dalit or so called Upper caste befor the Mother Cow. But, cow milk is more important and required for the these economically backward people called ‘Dalit’ under bare humiliation. Milk is cheaper than meat. PM Modi must take initiative to provide at least 1 liter free milk for each and every financially backward family. But, PM Modi is trying to woo the meat-eaters and paving more slaughter of Cow progeny which will increase the price of milk and it will hamper the agriculture. This is a blatant betrayal to the public health and nutrition. Without shedding free tears for the Dalits, it is good to arrange free milk for them”, Satish Kumar categorically told HENB as a retaliation of Modi’s recent comments on cow vigilantes.
While asking the matter of attack on Dalits by some cow vigilantes, Satish Kumar told HENB, “A section of Hindu people traditionally engaged in the skinning of the dead cows. Thousand of dead cows are skinned everyday by those Hindu brothers, now called Dalit, without any problem in the length and breadth of country. Modi must see that how two or three incidents came to the headlines of anti-Hindu newspaper to give a bad name of the cow protectors”.
Facing flak on ‘Gau Raksha’ comment by Modi, a Rajasthan Minister was seen to feed cows at a Cow Shelter in the state and now a more cautious PM Modi also sought help from the majority Cow protectors in a Hyderabad programme to expel the handful (mutthibhar) ‘fake cow protectors’ in question.
