A 52-YEAR-OLD man was stabbed to death, reportedly by members of his own community, for allegedly informing the police about a cow being sold for slaughter in Rampur’s Shahzad Nagar on Sunday.

While Nanhe Ali died in a hospital, his son Islam Ali (22) and nephew Mukhtiyar Ali (20), sustained injuries in the attack. On a complaint filed by Nanhe Ali’s son Babu, four of the seven accused were arrested on Monday.

Sub-Inspector Sumit Kumar, in charge of Dhamora police outpost, said: “About two weeks ago, I received a call on my cellphone. The caller said that Lakhnakhera resident Ghasita was going to sell his cow through his neighbour Ali Ahmed. The cow would be slaughtered and its meat served at a wedding.” He added that both Ghasita and Ali Ahmed had then denied the allegations. Asked if Nanhe Ali had called him up, Kumar said: “Ali Ahmed was sure that Nanhe Ali was behind the police action.”

On Saturday, Ali Ahmed and his aides allegedly caught hold of Nanhe Ali in the market and beat him up. Nanhe Ali later lodged a police complaint and a non-cognizable report was filed against Ali Ahmed, his brother Mohammad Umar and two relatives. Ahmed was later arrested.

“On Sunday, Nanhe Ali and a few others made some comments against Mohammad Umar while the latter was passing by his house. Umar left but later returned with his relatives, who allegedly attacked Nanhe,” the S-I said.

Nanhe Ali’s nephew Sameer, however, alleged: “My uncle was returning from the mosque when Umar and others stopped him. They started arguing with him over Ahmed’s arrest. As Umar stabbed him, Islam and Mukhtiyar rushed to help him… they too were stabbed.”

        Cow trading has become more dangerous than drug trafficking due the collusion of the gau rakshaks and the state machinery. With the previously innocuous occupation of cattle trading, now as life threatening as action on a war front, I must congratulate the UP government and its vigilantes for creating a situation where it is more dangerous to eat beef or trade in cattle than almost all other activities. Ache Din for the RSS bovines, you have done well.

            Both religions should respect each others’ beliefs and sentiments. Hindus should stop eating pork and perhaps not raise them at all while Muslims give up beef. No harm is done this way. everyone in peace as neighbors this way.

                I am a Hindu and communist. I eat both beef and pork. Any less and you are missing some essential nutrients. Just avoid Indian bred pigs.

                Remember PIGS are not holy for Muslims like COW is holy for Hindus. It is only that eating pork is not allowed for Muslims.So Muslims have no problem if others eat pork.Problems arise only when dead pigs or pork is thrown at Muslims or their religious places with the intention of humiliating them and hurting their religious beliefs.
