The management of Sree Kerala Varma College, Thrissur, on Friday decided not to take disciplinary action against the faculty member, who had justified the beef festival held on the campus where non-vegetarian stuff is banned.

Deepa Nisanth, an assistant professor at a college under Cochin Temple Board, had reacted on Facebook after six students were suspended on charges of conducting beef festival on the campus on October, as a protest against the Dadri lynching.

Nisanth had commented: “I strongly object to the opinion that college is considered as a temple… I have heard that teachers who supported the beef festival should be sacked. I want to see my name figure first in that list.”

Subsequently, the college management had sought an explanation from her. The action of the management had triggered an outrage from various quarters.

Temple board said the probe has revealed that the faculty member has not taken side with either the SFI or the ABVP during the violence following the conduct of the fest. However, the ABVP had sought action against Nisanth.

    SAVE COW TODAY TO SAVE TOMORROW Sir, human being on coming to earth will survive only with MILK and his growth will starts slowly with the agricultural products. This is being universally same. Then where is the question of MEAT. Sir, with cow dung and the fertility of soil will increase due to this reason only our farmers in every village of our nation are still producing different verities of food grains, vegetables, green leafs, fruits, etc,. Sir, all these agricultural products keeps a HUMAN healthy, as these products consists of all types of vitamins like A,B,C,D,B12 and so on. Sir, all these things are happening with the blessing of COW. On the surface of the earth no other country is having this much fertile land capable of producing number of verities of food items. Even the so called most developed counties like America, Russia, Australia, Germany, England, Canada are unable to produce number of items in their villages. But where as in OUR COUNTRY every village formers are producing different verities of agricultural items and by consuming these items we are keeping our health in good condition. That is the reason in the olden days INDIAN COW is worshiped as “KAMADHENU” and every family will be having more than two cows. Sir it is my humble request to take suitable steps to protest Cow by establishing Goshala and allotting land for cultivating green gr. Where cow is worshiped there people will leave happily as cow is “KAMADHENU" Sir, COW is MOTHER sir

He used to fast to protest and here parties are arranged to protest and in all this row innocent they are cutting innocent animals. Will God, Allah, Bhagwan forgive these dirty and hungry politicialns?
