Cow vigilantes belonging to a local unit of the Hindu Yuva Chhatra Parishad on Sunday afternoon allegedly stopped three vehicles carrying 51 cattle on the outskirts of Guwahati and thrashed the drivers and their helpers in the first reported case of such violence in Assam.

The group stopped the vehicles at Patorkuchi. Police later seized the vehicles and handed them over to the transport department. “The police have seized three vehicles, including a truck, after some people stopped them on the National Highway under Sonapur police station while they were transporting some cows from upper Assam. We handed over the vehicles, along with the cows, to the transport department to examine if there was any violation of provisions of the Motor Vehicles Act and other relevant acts,” Guwahati Police Commissioner Hiren Chandra Nath told The Indian Express.

Nath said no complaint had been lodged by anybody regarding alleged illegal transportation of cattle. “No one has also lodged any complaint of assault,” the commissioner said. Of the three vehicles, one was a truck carrying cattle from Tinsukia in upper Assam. There were two tempos carrying a couple of cows each from Sonapur to Jorabat, near here.

            'Meat terrorism' is spreading unhygienic conditions and dangerous viral diseases. 'Meat terrorism' is spreading unrest violence. 'Meat consumption' is spreading pollution through transport of cattle through millions of miles. 'Meat' itself is destroying our ecology because huge chillers refrigerants are needed to preserve meat.

                Iyer, Cows are given antibiotics, harmone injections, kept away from their calfs, made to stand most of their life on concrete floors, inseminated regularly and un-naturally so that milk yield continues without any major break. Cows are also fed unnatural, high-protein diets—which can include chicken feathers and fish, and sometimes even beef of other dead cows.—because their natural diet of grass would not provide the nutrients that they need to produce such massive amounts of milk. Cows live normally for 20 years, but farm cows can become diseased after 5 to 6 years of forced milking, and drugging, and have no value to the dairy after this period. The milk drinkers from these cows can have cancer, diabetes, hyper tension. Is that how you treat your mothers.
