Togadia demands noose for cow slaughterers


THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Viswa Hindu Parishad International Secretary-General Dr.Praveen Bhai Togadia has called upon the government to enact a piece of legislation   to ensure  capital punishment for cow slaughterers in the country.
 Addressing a reception accorded to the “Viswamangala Gograma Yatra’’ which arrived here on Friday evening, Togadia said that from the time of vedas our epics and history had recorded killings of men by their own brothers. Even there was stories of parents being killed by own children. But till the time of Muslim invasion, no cow had been slaughtered.
“Those who don’t want to respect the sentiments of the Hindus will have no right to live here,’’ he said.
 He pointed out that in Muslim-dominated countries pig slaughter had been banned though Muslims were not worshipping pigs. But in India, where cow is worshiped as “Go Mata,” it is being slaughtered. Under the current economic scenario the farmers are forced to sell the old cows to the butchers.  He said that the shift in the farming system based on chemical fertilisers and widespread use of milk other than cow milk and cow  ghee had led the dairy farmers to utter poverty and Vidarbha model suicides. Emphasising the need for returning to organic farming, Togadia said that it would be the only way to protect the agriculturists and dairy farmers of the country.
 As the Indian economy is based on agriculture, the dairy farmers and agriculturists are mutually dependent. “By saving cows we are restoring our culture from the complex civilisation of the modern days,” he said.
 Most of the grazing land had been taken over for other purposes making it difficult for the farmers to maintain the cows. The high-yielding breed of Brazilian cows are produced from the Ghir cow breed of Gujarat, he said.
  The VHP leader said that it was the duty of the 30 crore Hindu families in the country to protect the cow and see that no cow was slaughtered. He suggested the people to set apart a part of their daily food and at least one rupee per day for protecting the cows.
