Continuing his denunciation of cow vigilantes, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday asked people to beware of its ‘fake’ protectors trying to divide society and the country and asked the states to severely punish them. Terming cattle as country’s wealth, he said a handful of people were trying to create tension in the society in the name of cow protection.

“I would like to tell all countrymen that they beware of these fake cow protectors,” Modi said. The Prime Minister asked the states to identify people who want to destroy the social fabric and take stern action against them. “These handful of people must not be allowed to destroy your good work for their vested interest,” he said, while addressing a public meeting on his first visit to Telangana after assuming office.

Modi’s comments come at a time when his government and BJP are facing flak over incidents of violence against Dalits and Muslims by cow vigilantes in various states including Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh. Modi said there is a need to “expose” these people so they do not succeed in their nefarious designs.

India is a land of diversity, he said, adding “protecting our country’s unity and integrity is our primary responsibility. To fulfil it all countrymen should protect and serve cows (gau raksha and gau seva karein). Such service enhances national wealth…. it does not create problem for the nation”.

“But fake (cow protectors) destroy society and country. We need to beware of these people. There is a need to punish these people. Then alone can we take the nation to great heights,” the Prime Minister said after inaugurating a host of development projects.

In his first Town-Hall in Delhi, Modi had on Saturday strongly rebuked the cow vigilantes, saying most of them were “anti-social” elements running “shops” in the name of cow protection which made him “angry”.

        Article 48 of the Consution of India has set out a Directive Principle of State Policy on the Prohibition of Cow Slaughter. In 2005, the Supreme Court of India upheld the validity of the Cow Slaughter Laws by which most States in India have banned cattle slaughter and view it as a criminal offence.

So Dalit, Fake neo convert Christians, Popat Mullha invoke Ambedkar every time should respect Late Babasaheb Ambedkar's vision for India. Indus valley civilization have revered cow since 400 years. Ambedkar in his book wrote that foreign invaders always surprised to see how vegetarianism is part of the diet for Indians. Before British coming to India Indians never ate eggs.

            B.R.Ambedkar included in our consution the directive Principles (Article 48) enshrined in the Consution, a duty has been cast upon the Government to take steps for preserving and improving the breeds, and prohibiting the slaughter of cows and calves. lt;br/gt;It is shame that those dalits and muslims act against Amberdaker.

              Dalit should blame Khangress for not eliminating Ambedkar's article 48 about gouraksha. 70 years of fake democracy drama by kangress.
