A group of cow vigilantes thrashed two meat traders in Malegaon area on suspicion of possessing beef. The incident that happened on Friday saw the men assaulting and abusing them. The whole incident was captured on mobile camera and made available by news agency ANI. In the video, one of the assailants was seen slapping the victim and demanding him to say “jai Sri Ram”. They were later heard talking about taking the victims to the police station.

In Maharashtra, it is illegal to slaughter bulls, bullocks and buffaloes after the state government introduced a ban in 2015. However, it is not illegal to possess meat from the animals. The Bombay High Court in January this year struck down relevant sections of the Maharashtra Animal Preservation (Amendment) Act that prohibited possession of the meat.

    Sampid Patra quoted a Judgement by Justice Lahotia on cattle slaughter were Patra quoted that Majority sentiment has to be respected even if it happens to the food habits of a section.After this we must insist that slaughter of chicken/Lambs and Goats must be banned as well.Cruelty of animals act must be applied to Fish as well.

        red meat like cow meat causes cancer because it does not get flushed from the bowel easily.It causes colon cancer.Most westners get colon and rectal cancers. People are advised to eat vegan/vegetarian/lean meats like fish,scallops and sea food. But trashing people for various reasons is barbaric.Where are these people when women are targetted. One advise to these people is become stree rakshak first, save women and then save cows later. Heights of human stupidity really.

          At that time there were ritualistic practices like animal sacrifices, with which Brahmins were identified. Buddha attacked these practices. There were sacrifices, which involved 500 oxen, 500 male calves, 500 female calves and 500 sheep to be tied to the sacrificial pole for slaughter. Buddha pointed out that aswamedha, purusmedha, va eya sacrifices did not produce good results. According to a story in Digha Nikaya, when Buddha was touring Magadha, a Brahmin called Kutadanta was preparing for a sacrifice with 700 bulls, 700 goats and 700 rams. Buddha intervened and stopped him. His rejection of animal sacrifice and emphasis on non-injury to animals umed a new significance in the context of new agriculture.
