Gaukripananda Brahmachari | HENB | New Delhi | May 31, 2017:: Amidst the vehement protests by a number of states in the country like Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, West Bengal against the Central government’s decision to impose ban on cattle market leading to rampant slaughter of milch and draught cattle; the Kerala High Court today supports Central govt order banning sale of cattle for slaughter purposes in various states.
On the same day of Holy Wednesday, the Rajasthan high court recommended the Central Govt to declare cow as the national animal of India+.
The Rajasthan HC further suggested that anyone guilty of cow slaughter should be sentenced to life, a steep escalation from the present three years’ imprisonment.
Judge Mahesh Chandra Sharma made the recommendations while hearing the PIL on Hingonia Gaushala matter, a government-run cowshed in Jaipur where over a hundred cows had perished over the span of a few weeks last year.
The Kerala HC said there was no need for the judiciary to interfere with the Centre’s decision as it did not contravene any law or provision in the Constitution.
Chief Justice Navniti Prasad said the new order had been “misread” and nothing stated in the petition has been banned by government.
“There is no ban on slaughter or sale of beef. What has been said in the new order is that mass sale of cattle for slaughter through the cattle market is banned,” the judge observed.
Following the chief justice’s remarks, the petitioner decided to withdraw the PIL and the court approved the same.
Widespread protests had erupted across Kerala objecting to the Centre’s imposition of ban on sale and purchase of cattle for slaughter. Protesters alleged that it infringed upon the food habits of people. The state government led by Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan+ also crticized the new order, saying that it encroached on the powers of the state.
The WB CM Mamata Banerjee+ and Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah+ also rejected the central ban on cattle slaughter, saying it undemocratic, unconstitutional and not mandatory to follow every notification from Centre.
The Madurai bench of the Madras high court had on Tuesday stayed the ban for four weeks after PILs contended that the provisions of the Centre’s order “breached the cardinal principle of federalism” as it amounted to legislation in the fields earmarked for state legislature.
But, with the Wednesday observations of Rajasthan and Kerala High Courts gave a substantial quantum in favour of the spirit of ‘Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Regulation of Livestock Markets) Rules, 2017’ under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act.
The social media has been reacting against the “Beef Fest” organised by both youth and students wing of CPIM and Congress in parts of Kerala, Tamil Nadu. Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh.
On the ground of Social Media retaliation, Congress has expelled its three Youth Congress cadres including a leader name Rijil Makkutty+ for a public slaughter of a calf in Kannur, Kerala.
One Gaupananda Khestrachari, a self proclaimed cow advocate made a “COW CAVEAT” in Madras High Court thru Social Media Platforms making three points of submission: 1). My Lord, You have Right to Eat definitely. 2). But, how do you get the Right to Kill us (cows/cattle)? and finally urged 3). Please ensure the Right to Live for cows and cattle!
Actually, ‘Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Regulation of Livestock Markets) Rules, 2017’ aimed to ensure:
* No Cattle market must be a place of Animal Cruelty.
*Market owner must ensure that sale and purchase of cattle only for agriculture, not for slaughter.
*Sale and Purchase for slaughter only through valid certification and checking.
*No cattle market within 25 Kms of border area .
*Market owners and State will be responsible any violation.
But, the pro Muslim politicians in India along with their secular counterparts in media and other social and educational segments are fanning the mentality of “Beef Jihad” only to oppose the Central Govt. led by BJP and Narendra Modi.
As per Constitution of India (Vide Art 48) and various provisions to prohibit animal cruelty and obviously in an alarming situation in deceasing the numbers of cattle in India and downgrading of the indigenous agriculture, soil condition and milk products, Govt of India introduce a central rule to stop cattle market leading to rampant slaughter, pollution and animal cruelty.
Experts say that, the introduction of ‘Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Regulation of Livestock Markets) Rules, 2017’ is a timely and right step by the Modi Govt to save vulnerable cattle resource in India and to check cross border and inter state cow smuggling which allegedly enticed with Maoist and Jihadi terrorism.
On Wednesday, Kerala and Rajasthan HC actually slapped on Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan, WB CM Mamata Banerjee and Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah in broad day light in ‘Cattle Market’.
But, they are all shameless .
