Govt should hang people who eat beef: Sadhvi in Goa

Stating that Hindus need to save their daughters from “love-jihad”, Saraswati said, “Agar hum shastra nahi rakhenge toh aanewale samay mein hamara vinaash hoga (if we do not stock arms, we will be destroyed in future).”

Stating that Hindus need to save their daughters from “love-jihad”, Saraswati said, “Agar hum shastra nahi rakhenge toh aanewale samay mein hamara vinaash hoga (if we do not stock arms, we will be destroyed in future).”

STATING THAT she will “request” the Central government to hang people who eat beef as “status symbol”, Sadhvi Saraswati, from Chhindwara in Madhya Pradesh, on Wednesday urged Hindus to stock arms at home to “save our women from love jihad”.

She made the remarks at the inauguration of a four-day All India Hindu Convention, organised by the Hindu Janajagriti Samiti, which is allied to the Sanathan Sanstha. Some members of the Sanstha stand accused in the murder of rationalist and anti-superstition activist Narendra Dabholkar in Pune in 2013. The RSS, BJP and VHP had earlier distanced themselves from the event and the organisation, and no leader representing them were present at the Ponda event.

Sadhvi Saraswati, who drew the loudest cheer, said at the inaugural session that the “biggest challenge” today is not converting a non-Hindu to Hinduism. “Pehle Hindu ko hi Hindu banana hai (first we need to convert a Hindu to Hindu) — that is our biggest challenge today… They are in the garb of seculars… these seculars are the first who will be attacked,” she said.

On beef-eating, she said, “Jo vyakti apne ma (gau mata) ka maas khaane ko apna status symbol maanta hai, aisi vyaktiyon ko Bharat sarkar se nivedan karti hoon, phaansi pe latkana chahiye. beech chaurahey pe latkana chahiye… tab logon ko pata chalega ki gau mata ki rakhsa karna hamara kartavya hai (People who take it as status symbol to eat beef… I request the Centre to hang them in public. People will then understand that cow protection is our responsibility).”

Stating that Hindus need to save their daughters from “love-jihad”, Saraswati said, “Agar hum shastra nahi rakhenge toh aanewale samay mein hamara vinaash hoga (if we do not stock arms, we will be destroyed in future).”
Abhay Vartak, national spokesperson for Sanstha, who spoke after Saraswati, took on the BJP as well. “There are BJP ministers in Goa who speak in support of beef; in the North-East, a minister says he eats beef; in Delhi, a Union minister says that he loves beef. Is gau mata food for them?”

    This silly sadhwi has to first show where in our religious scriptures it is written that we cannot eat beef. Maybe these folks need a biology lesson. Buffalo is not the same as cow. And male cow is different from female cow or gaye mata. Everyone please educate yourselves against this ignorance. The sadhwi needs to first learn 'Ahimsa' or 'tolerance', which has been mentioned in our religious scriptures unambiguously. The issue of Beef on the other hand is NOT that clearly written. The newer scriptures acknowledge not to eat female cows but the ancient scriptures do not place this restriction according to my reading. Second we are not a 'Hindu' rashtra. We are a pluralist democracy.

      Such views are deflecting from real issues of jobless growth..which is resulting in considerable social and economic unrest in India today, which are being fanned by such puerile statements by RSS 'bhakts' who know nothing about the Bhakti Movement for which the country is raking up issues of what one should and should not eat, wear or watch and so on the country is being reduced to a laughing stock globally for its preoccupation with inane and irrelevant matters in the 21st century...grow up 'bhakts' , give up your frog in the well at ude and smell the fresh coffee !

          Please grow a brain and first protect children who are brutally killed for organs and . Protect women then talk about religious nonsense. Why is it that when a country learns to live peacefully that morons like Sadhvi Saraswati come along and have really good political backing? It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure this out, right? She is just some pawn used for the moment mouthing words of some radical religious group out to protect cow. No one is eating cow, they are eating beef. First and foremost lady with nothing to do learn the difference between cow and beef. If your cows [gau mata] are so precious then put them in a protective environment and really stop them from enjoying the plastic that your lovely brothers are throwing around after your amazing speech manch. Also there are government lockers available to put expensive precious things, kindly place them there for our road safety and human life. Innocent human life protection should be something you should work on.

            i myself is a hindu and love my religion. i also support modi govt without a question. but i am sad to see this woman say all this... to stock arms n all.... what exactly are we teaching our children? where are we getting different from the madrasas and the terrorists in there?? i would really suggest not to make celebrities out of these nonsense and extremist ideas... Mr modi doesnt really promote extremism as per his own idea but development is his key... education and self employment... these extremists are far from this.
