Taking on Prime Minister Narendra Modi for “insulting” gau rakshaks with his recent remarks against cow vigilantes, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) Saturday said Modi’s move to ask state governments to create dossiers of cow vigilantes amounts to “racial profiling” of Hindus.

The VHP also asked the Centre to form a Gau Mantralaya (ministry for cows) and enact a central legislation for cow protection.

Expressing “utmost dissatisfaction and agony” over Modi’s remarks, VHP’s acting president Pravin Togadia said that instead of appreciating efforts of Hindus in protecting cows and initiating a sincere dialogue with these “simple gau rakshaks”, Modi termed 80 per cent of them “anti-social”. He called it an “insult not only of gau mata (mother cow) but also of Hindus, as well as all those who gave their lives to protect cows”

“The head of the nation asking all states to create dossiers on gau rakshaks means racial profiling of a particular community — the Hindus, in this case, because Hindus give their lives to protect cows. Special dossiers are made on terrorists, serial rapists. Here, the dossiers are being made on Hindu rakshaks (protectors), but not on cow killers,” Togadia said.

Togadia also said that the VHP will provide all help to the “law-abiding gau rakshaks” and take care of their families if they are “targeted by state governments”.

VHP joint general secretary Surendra Jain said most states already have laws against cow slaughter, and vigilantes would not have had to hit the streets if these laws were implemented.

    Mr. Togadia, it is not racial profiling, it is criminal profiling. All gau rakshak are criminal, like any one else, who takes law in its own hands. Grow up, you are a shame to real hindus. You think that displaying big tilak on your forehead makes hindu?

        From a GORAKSHAK, Modi has become a GO BHAKSHAK. lt;br/gt;-lt;br/gt;Modi has no botheration of poor and farmers and is in the pockets of corporates and MNCs.lt;br/gt;-lt;br/gt;While Modi praises Sikkim for becoming an ORGANIC STATE, Why does he not implement the same on the NATIONAL LEVEL and make India an ORGANIC NATION?lt;br/gt;-lt;br/gt;This is because the FERTILIZER LOBBY and MEAT LOBBY funding his PARTY as well as CAMPAIGN will not allow Modi to ban CHEMICAL FARMING and SLAUGHTER of our DESI COWs and BULLs.lt;br/gt;-lt;br/gt;Implementing the COW BASED ORGANIC FARMING on a national level will generate 1 crore new jobs annually in ORGANIC MANURE production alone. lt;br/gt;-lt;br/gt;Jobs generated due to DAIRY, GHEE, COW BASED AYURVEDI PRODUCTS will generate another 2 to 3 million new jobs annually. lt;br/gt;-lt;br/gt;Poor Indian farmers waste 20 lakh crore rupees annually on harmful and poisonous chemical fertilizers and pesticides hoping out of ignorance a good FARM PRODUCTIVITYlt;br/gt;-lt;br/gt;Modi should give up these 'florid' and 'riffraff' projects like bullet train and smart cities and instead focus on uplifting the rural economy and help out the farmers who are in distress. lt;br/gt;-lt;br/gt;IF MODI FAILS TO IMPLEMENT COW BASED ORGANIC NATURAL FARMING and BAN SLAUGHTER OF DESI COWS and BULLS, BJP WILL MEET THE SAME FATE AS CONGRESS IN 2019

            We should make Pravin Togadia our next Prime Minister. Poor fellow. Narendra Modi is not paying any heed to what Togadia says. He is fed up with the humiliation and frustrated. He could not become a successful doctor but has conducted study on COW.
