Peacocks don’t have sex, cow’s bellow destroys germs: Rajasthan HC Judge Mahesh Chandra Sharma

In his order, Justice Sharma cited some research work and named some scientists.

peacock, peacock sex, rajasthan judge, Mahesh Chandra Sharma, rajasthan HC judge, rajasthan judge peacock, judge peacock, cow national animal, national animal of india, india news The Rajasthan High Court also asked centre to make cow national animal.

WHEN RAJASTHAN High Court Judge Mahesh Chandra Sharma said on Wednesday that the peacock “does not indulge in sex with the peahen”, it was not the first time that he was offering this theory. Ruling on a peacock poaching case, Justice Sharma, on January 11, 2016, made the same observation about how the peacock is a “brahmachari” (celibate).

“This theory about peacocks drinking tears to breed is an old hoax. They breed like all other birds, by means of sexual copulation,” said Bikram Grewal, a well-known ornithologist.

In his order, Justice Sharma cited some research work and named some scientists. One of those quoted was “German scientist Rudle Steiner”, which is an apparent reference to Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925), an Austrian philosopher, architect and esotericist. He is behind the concept of biodynamic agriculture which involved, among other things, horn-manure — a humus mixture prepared by filling the horn of a cow with cow manure, burying it in the ground to decompose during the winter and recovered for use the following spring. Steiner believed these preparations mediated terrestrial and cosmic forces into the soil.

Steiner claimed Christ as the centre of earthly evolution. “It becomes clear to us through spiritual science that the being whom we call Christ is to be recognised as the centre of life on Earth, that the Christian religion is the ultimate religion for Earth’s whole future,” he wrote.

Most of the other names in Justice Sharma’s order are incomplete.

It is unclear who “agriculture scientists Dr Julius and Dr Book German” are. As for their attributed claim that “cow is the only divine animal that exhales oxygen”, no living being other than plants exhale oxygen. Animals, however, exhale unused oxygen, as lungs cannot process all the oxygen that is inhaled.

According to the 2006 FAO report, the livestock sector accounts for 9 per cent of carbon dioxide derived from human-related activities, but produces a much larger share of even more harmful greenhouse gases.

The “Dr King” named in the order may refer to a Dr King of Madras, who is mentioned in several online claims for his work on how cow dung destroys cholera germs. No authentic reference to his identity of research is available.

Similarly, there are numerous references on the Internet to Russian scientist Shirovich named in the order but the full name or affiliation is absent.

    Some question arises, if the Cow becomes national animal, whether milking and drinking will be allowed? Before milking, milkman tight her leg, whether it will be allowed? Cows & male cows can be seen grazing in open/ streets/ roads, whether this will be allowed? What will be status of male Cows?

      This judge is no worse than majority of Indians who keep believing in elephant gods and monkey gods and hundreds, if not thousands, of other gods. If you believe all that to be true, you can also believe everything this judge is saying.

        the judge has a fetish for animal . he gets turned on most by pea -peahen fornicating. of course, being from the judicial profession and knowing fully well that animal is unlawful, he has resorted to this rather clever subversion of claiming that pea s and peahens do not mate and so claim immunity from prosecution for his voyeurism

          Should Recommend Padma Shree for this judge for his knowledge!! IF possible if Nobel Price for Science can be nominated. No wonder we have "super brains like him" to serve a PM who claimed plastic surgery was there in our ancient History!! Do we really progressing? If this kind of person on judges chair, can justice prevail?

                It seems that the judge could not rise himself from the time of Satyanarayana Vrat Katha and Garud Puraan.

                    While the world is moving forward, India is moving COWARD! India is the only country in the world where cow du ng and u rine are considered holy, healthy and edible but the beef is considered unholy. Unfortunately, it is the result of saffron propa a and has nothing to do with Hindu religion. No cattle industry can survive in the world, if some of the animals are not sent to the butcher. Imagine, 50 of the cow populations are bulls which are not used for agrticulture anymore. Only one bull is enough for the fertility of 100 cows. Of the cows, more than 10 are infertile. Again, the cow starts producing milk after 3 years and may remain unproductive for 5 years before her natural death. Our government is playing a big communal game. There is no restriction on the export of beef (including secret smugg and slaughter of cows by BJP members). India is no. 1 in beef exports worldwide. What they don't like is the local population consuming beef.
