Upananda Brahmachari | HENB | Haridwar | Nov 7, 2016:: In 1966, Hindu organizations agitated to demand a ban on the slaughter of cows in India, as enshrined in Art 48 of the Directive Principles of State Policy in the Constitution of India. Among others, the Shankaracharya fasted for the cause. The agitation culminated in a massive demonstration outside Sansad Bhavan in New Delhi on 7 November 1966. As per Hindu Panchang that day was Kartik Shukla Ashtami of Vikram Samvat, famously known as Gopashtami among Hindus.
The Prime Minister, Indira Gandhi did not accept the demand for a ban on cow slaughtering. A mass of 10,000 advocates against cow slaughter, led by Hindu holymen and thousands of anti-slaughter Hindu devotees tried to storm the parliament, but were prevented. The mob then entered the parliament campus and the capital city saw a furious agitation of Hindus for banning cow slaughter in India. It was revealed that a small number of Muslims were also participated in that Samsad Bhawan gerao rally. A 48-hour curfew was ordered, all the meetings were banned.The Mob also attacked the then congress president Kamaraj’s Delhi residence and set it on fire. Many died in police firing to control the crowd.
The then PM Indira Gandhi washed off her hands by accusing Home minister, Gulzarilal Nanda, who resigned immediately taking responsibility for the administration’s failure to maintain law and order. The Shankracharya Niranjandev Tirth, Swami Hariharananda Ji, widely known as Karpatriji Maharaj and Mahatma Ramchandra Veer went to observing fast unto die for the brutal killing of sadhus and Gau-bhakt devotees in Delhi. Mahatma Ramchandra Veer observed 166 days longtime fast at that time. The next Home Minister (from 14 November 1966 to 27 June 1970) and a puppet of Indira, Yashwantrao Balwantrao Chavan went to the fasting saints and promised to bring the ‘anti-slaughter bill’ in the next session of parliament and the sainsts ended their fasting. But, the anti Hindu Congress Govt never kept their promise.
The agitation Rally of 7th Nov 1966 was started from the Arya Samaj Temple at Chandni Chowk under the leadership of Swami Karpartri Ji Majaraj under the banner of “Gauraksha Mahaabhiyan Samiti”. An unified mass comprising the Sanatani, Arya Samaji, Hindu, Bauhhist, Jain, Sikh, Nath, Nirankari all started march towards Parliament of India (Samsad Bhawan) keeping prominent and most revered saints like Shankaracharyas of Jagannath Puri Govardhan Math and Dwaraka Jotishpeeth, the seven Peethadishes of Vallabh Sampradaya, Ramanuja Sampradaya Peethadhipati, Ramananda Sampradaya Peethadhipati, Mahant of Gorakhpeeth, Saints President and Secretary of Arya Samaj and Granthis of various Sikh shrines.
It is reported that approx 10 lakh people including 20 thousand women participated in that rally on 7th Nov 1966 in Delhi.

The rally reached near the parliament and the parliament session was on. The Gauraksha Samiti gave memorandum and ultimatum to the Govt beforehand but Govt was not ready to hear the people striving for a ‘complete ban of cow slaughter’ in India.
At the climax when the agitating Hindu people in numbers were entering in the Parliament scaling the wall and gates, the police lobbed tear gas and started firing ruthlessly on the unarmed mass causing a massive homicide in Delhi in the hands of Indira Gandhi Govt.
From an interview with Acharya Sohanlal Ramrang, a participant in that rally (as published in Aadhi Abadi by Sandeep Dev), it is divulged that some 5000 was killed in that greatest Hindu killing by Indira Gandhi and Congress in a single day of Gopastami, 7th Nov 1966. The dead bodies were cleared from the roads and dumped or put in fire in unknown places.
”इतना सुनना था कि नौजवान संसद भवन की दीवार फांद-फांद कर अंदर घुसने लगे। लोगों ने संसद भवन को घेर लिया और दरवाजा तोड़ने के लिए आगे बढ़े। पुलिसकर्मी पहले से ही लाठी-बंदूक के साथ तैनात थे। पुलिस ने लाठी और अश्रुगैस चलाना शुरू कर दिया। भीड़ और आक्रामक हो गई। इतने में अंदर से गोली चलाने का आदेश हुआ और पुलिस ने भीड़ पर अंधाधुंध फायरिंग शुरू कर दी। संसद के सामने की पूरी सड़क खून से लाल हो गई। लोग मर रहे थे, एक-दूसरे के शरीर पर गिर रहे थे और पुलिस की गोलीबारी जारी थी। नहीं भी तो कम से कम, पांच हजार लोग उस गोलीबारी में मारे गए थे।
बड़ी त्रासदी हो गई थी और सरकार के लिए इसे दबाना जरूरी था। ट्रक बुलाकर मृत, घायल, जिंदा-सभी को उसमें ठूंसा जाने लगा। जिन घायलों के बचने की संभावना थी, उनकी भी ट्रक में लाशों के नीचे दबकर मौत हो गई। हमें आखिरी समय तक पता ही नहीं चला कि सरकार ने उन लाशों को कहां ले जाकर फूंक डाला या जमीन में दबा डाला। पूरे शहर में कफ्र्यू लागू कर दिया गया और संतों को तिहाड़ जेल में ठूंस दिया गया। केवल शंकराचार्य को छोड़ कर अन्य सभी संतों को तिहाड़ जेल में डाल दिया गया। करपात्री जी महाराज ने जेल से ही सत्याग्रह शुरू कर दिया। जेल उनके ओजस्वी भाषणों से गूंजने लगा। उस समय जेल में करीब 50 हजार लोगों को ठूंसा गया था।”
But, in a report in Organiser (Nov 25, 2007), the english mouthpiece of RSS, it figured the martyrs as only 375 so far. In an article entitled, “A tribute to martyrs of November 1966 firing on protest against cow slaughter“, the writer Promod Kumar conveyed, “Organised under the banner of Rashtriya Godhan Mahasangh the agitators paid rich tribute to the 375 gobhaktas including saints who were killed in police firing on November 7, 1966 while demonstrating at the Parliament for cow protection”.
It may differ the numbers of the martyrs from the highest of 5000 to to lowest of 375, but it was the largest Hindu killing by Indira Gandhi and Congress in a single day and the martyrs left their lives for a genuine cause of cow protection.
The sacrifice of the huge numbers of Gaubhakts on 7th Nov 1966 in Delhi is still not succeeded for an overarching legislation to ban cow slaughter in India.
We can’t betray our martyred Hindu saints and devotees laid their lives on 7th Nov 1966 in Delhi. Hindus of India must prepare for a repetition of the 1966 agitation to bring a National Cow Slaughter Ban Law in the land of Gopal, Lord Kirshna for the virtual protection of this holy land under the blessings of Gau Mata.
Postscript: I have heard from a nonagenarian saint who participated in 1966 Save Cow Movement in Delhi, now living in Haridwar that Srimad Hariharananda Swami, widely known as Karapatriji Maharaj cursed Indira Gandhi for getting a same fate for a massive Hindu killing by brutal firing.
Indira was killed by brutal firing by her bodyguards in 1984 and Rajiv Gandhi was killed by LTTE suicide squad in 1991.
I think the curse of Karpatri Ji maharaj is still in force.
Shame on Congress.
We will avenge it at the right time
It is sad that even in 21st century Certain elements
Bring out issues slehuch result in violence snd killings. .
Mainly issues come up against Muslims namely cow
slaughtering or barbri mosque years ago etc.
Certain party is engaged to create such conflicting issues.
And they just don’t accept the fact that yuday indya has
200 millions Muslims whuch us about 20% . Suppose there was nomkartitiin
Then there would have been India eoukd gave 550 millions
Muslim against 1 billion Hindus same proportion as ur was in 2947
If cows slaughtering us banned share eould happen to the massive number of old cows ? Same czn vecsaud xbout giard snd Sheri.
I think us better if such animals are consumed by human beings than running around in ruses snd die when become to old.
Indus us a secular country but even after 70 years there us a lack of tolerance
Against Muslims . Hindu parties must not ignite the fact originally 809 years ago India had only Hindus or small. Jmbersif budhists.
Today’s Muslims are mostly from Hindus converted to Islam. Do there should becawarenwss Tolerance snd iasdiin tuesrfs each other.
If I didn’t Muslims would have been in one onace there could have been another largest Islamic state.
What Indus kschs soart from the xbive mdnyiibed fact us the education
And what I have been told Indy SN give had been
Dngzged in changing certain facts in the past history do that grudges
Dmo g Hindus xnd Muslims remain of increase.
I have lively tejationsceith Hindus fir iver 50 years and
We have mutual respect and besides they are
Very sincere and honest.
When I was in primary school in Delhi and joined sarnatxn dharam high school in
ajmeri gate I enjoyed being student of 5th clad
Hzving my class teacher Lala Ramdas .
Let’s try to be good friends good neighbours znd zbice
All giud humsn beings. Muslims have adopted lot of Hindu
Culture especially in weddings. Like mehndi and dances etc
We may write Urdu and Hindu but when we speak it sounds
the same language .
We are best advised to learn to live together learn to respect each other
Respect each other snd not interfere in each other
Religion or rituals.
Recently nigham Sonu who stirred
On Azan in mosque on loud speaker . While I understand his k jrvtion
Then what about bell gingings in temples snd churches ?
Some people sjesys bring up new ideas either to stir or to become
Fsmous . Like in Denmark some years ago a cartoonid
Drew Prriphet Mihxmned pictures snd like Nike put Allah in their slippers or sport shoes . This type if things have been stirring always but if people get better education and better awareness helped by Ruling parties. I am sure without sny partial policies situation will not become critical. Let’s stick to old slogans what I still
Hindu Muslim bhai bhai
So let’s remember this spirit we don’t live for 2000 years
Our average life is about 60 years do contribute towards
Hifmony friendship znd respect for each orger’s faurh whether Muslims Hindus Sikhs sir Christian’s/bydhusrs.
Thus sotjsbus beautiful. Only human being have created borders wars snd destruction
I love yo live in peace eith mutual respect regardless of sny language. Okof race culture. We sll need to contribute towards understanding fir each other
What happens to the “massive number ” of old men and women in your family ? Do you kill them ??
Gau rakshan is the essence of sanatan dharma.
Do you kill your mother and eat her, having grown up on her milk, once she is of not much use to you?
I have lived in a Muslim majority area in Hyderabad, and it is scary. You cannot sell your house to a hindu, the mosque next to our colony took over the land in our colony allocated for park and community centre, and when a 20 of the retired people took a signature petition to the mosque, requesting the land back, they we’re greeted by 300 or so Muslim men with weapons and hatchets, and a muslim DIG of police and an armed police force with shields and guns, all for 20 old unarmed people requesting their land back.
This is how Muslim majority will be in India for minorities.
And all these Muslims and Christians we’re once Hindus. Once they change religion, they lose even compassion, ethics and morals and will steal and if need be even kill their own Hindu brothers.
There are many loving and kind Muslims and Christians but where is their voice when we are suffering. Why don’t they suppress these ugly humans doing atrocities in the name of Allah and Jesus. When they cannot protect us, what do we Hindus do, but protect ourselves.
You only talk of respect but remain focussed on CowSlaughter knowing that it is against the tradition and culture of other 80% public in the country, though the remaining 15-20% are also converted. You are talking of respect, secularisn, peace etc. only till you are under something like 30% post which you will certainly like us to profess your way. Simply, your words don’t suit your actual behaviour..!!
What Bhai Bhai!!!
Read history, is it wrong to learn from mistakes.
We Hindus are doing that !!
Gopashtmi is when? the three people dies on three different month and date.
31 October 1984 was Gopastami.
21 May 1991 wasn’t, however that was also a horrific case.
21 Nov 2012 was Gopastami on which day Kasab was hanged.
Now people having issues with singing vandey mataram and this problem only muslims have.. why christen naver demand this they have same ritual and religious rules … secularism is stupid conspect.. muslim got pakistan and bangladesh …. and what hindus and christen and sikh got…nothing… even after getting pakistan amd bangladesh muslim want all the facilities in india.. i naver heard that christen and sikh demanding facilities as muslims
Even muslim always hinding themslef behind indian constitition but inside heart and upfront they will always argue for impose sheria.. india could naver be great country till the every indian started to give first place to only india… but if u ask to any muslim they will say first allah then islam then sheria then arab then india.. after this they want all the facilities from india…i dont undertand this duel standard….
In seculer nation we all should respect ech and every faith and religion.. i had eaten caw meet but i have stoped.. if our eating habits disrespecting out hurting any religious sentiment then eating caw meet should be prohibited in india..
I am buddhista from my child hood i was listening how hindus had treated my ancenter badly by name of cast and warnaaa.. but now things has been changed.. i naver faced issues by cast or region..
We all have two choises in seculer world one is india or religion… couse if we just become mad on name of god then all our action will make bad reactions
We never knew that Indira Gandhi could have been so cruel to Hindu Saints.

Indira Gandhi was kind, or rather, servile, to Hindu saints only when she wanted to curry favor. Karpatri Maharaj had वाक सिद्धि (power to make one’s prediction come true). Indira approached him for his blessings to become PM. Karpatri Maharaj did bless her, but asked her to promise putting cow slaughter to an end in return. Like a true politician, she forgot her promise. The killing of these protesting Hindus was the icing on the cake.
Indira also visited the Aurobindo Ashram often. She was also a friend of J. Krishnamurti. When Indira imposed the curfew in 1975, Krishnaji told her that she was riding a tiger, but didn’t know how to get off it. After imposing the curfew, her बुरे दिन started and she become a depressed woman before being killed by her own bodyguards in 1984.
I curse the negru family for Hindu misery and not able to have our an Hindu rastra
One day we will have a great Hindu nation, and Nehru and gandi will be distant history,
When Mr. Kamaraj’s house in Delhi was attacked, was he there or the mob attacked an empty house? If someone knows this please reply. Thanks in advance.
