Raghu Jain | HENB | Mumbai | June 18, 2017:: Hindu think tank, BJP politician and Rajya Sabha MP Dr Subramanian Swamy today said the Narendra Modi government would enact a ban on cow slaughter across the country.
“We don’t have a law right now, but we still have two years to go – after that five years more – so a law banning cow slaughter, which is on the concurrent list, would be enacted across the country,” Swamy said.
“The Supreme Court has repeatedly said that eating beef is not an essential part of Islam, and there is no law that can prevent us legislating that you cannot eat beef.”
Swamy was speaking at a conference on the “Glorious Indian Cow”, organised jointly by the Virat Hindustan Sangam (a social organisation formed by Swamy), the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE), Urjaa World Foundation and ISKCON.
In the event, a book titled by “Capitalism, Communism and Cowism” written by Sahadeva Dasa was also released.
“We have to safeguard the cow for a variety of reasons. The cow represents our mental liberation. So our commitment to safeguard the cow is intact,” the Rajya Sabha member said.
He said there would be no shortage of funds to protect the cows or build shelters for them.
“We must elevate the status of gau rakshaks (cow protectors) and give them the certificate so that no one intercepts and kills someone on the roads,” Swamy said, apparently alluding to the lynchings by cow vigilantes.
“All the violence that took place was by criminals. I think gau rakhshaks are doing a great service and a new cadre of gau rakshaks of Hindustan will be created.”
Swamy said the Congress-led UPA government had supported beef export by providing “13 types of subsidies”.
“When we came to power, we abolished these subsidies one by one and the volume of beef export has come down significantly,” he said.
Swamy also mentioned that every state will have to obey National Law banning cow slaughter, when introduced.
Another speaker, Guru Arihant Rishiji, founder of the Urjaa World Foundation, announced the launch of an educational awareness campaign to sensitize students about cow protection.
He said: “Through our foundation and in association with like-minded organisations, we are going to hold camps and awareness campaigns in schools so that the children are taught the benefits of cow protection right from childhood.”
A very good numbers of audience was present in the Cow protection seminar in BSE.
