VHP responds to PM Modi: Gau Raksha is part of Gau seva

Contending that “cow-protection is an indispensable part of Gau-seva,” VHP Joint General Secretary Surendra Jain Tuesday said that “Gau-paalan, Gau-sanrakshan, Gau Sanvardhan and Gau-raksha (cow-protection) complete the circle of Gau-seva".

In an apparent reference to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speech at Sabarmati Ashram in Gujarat, the VHP on Tuesday “cautioned against the conspiracy towards maligning the holy vow of cow-protection”. Contending that “cow-protection is an indispensable part of Gau-seva,” VHP Joint General Secretary Surendra Jain Tuesday said that “Gau-paalan, Gau-sanrakshan, Gau Sanvardhan and Gau-raksha (cow-protection) complete the circle of Gau-seva”.

Last week, PM Modi had warned those “running shops in the name of cow protection”.

“Killing people in the name of cow is unacceptable…It makes me angry that people are running shops in the name of cow protection… Some people indulge in anti-social activities at night, and in the day masquerade as cow protectors,” Modi had recently said in Ahmedabad.

Last year also, the VHP had expressed “utmost dissatisfaction and agony” over Modi’s disapproving remarks on Gau Rakshaks. Days after Modi had termed nearly 80 per cent of them “anti-social”, the VHP had said that the PM had “insulted” Gau Rakshaks.

Today, Jain cited the instance of Mahatma Gandhi who had said that “Swaraj is incomplete without Gau-raksha”. Demanding a “strong anti-cow-slaughter central law,” Jain said that once the law is implemented there will be no need for a struggle.

The VHP asserted that “Gau Rakshaks are victims not tyrants”. Slamming “some placard-carrying groups” who are “trying to malign the holy resolve of cow-protection”, he said “even a section of the media and propagandists end up lending a helping hand to these anti-nationals”.

      Except the fanatics and terrorists, everyone will agree that killing a living thing, be it an animal, bird, plant and a human is wrong. however, killing animals for food is accepted even in Buddhist traditions. What one eats depends on childhood habits that families teach. Therefore, it should be an individual's choice. If Gau Rakhshas want people to stop eating beef or any other meat, they should educate and inform people with scientific reasons as the video below does, instead of taking law into their hands and killing beef eaters in the name of religion. s: /watch?v ANUoAdXfA60

          And that is why thousands of cows are dying from lack of food, shelter and plastic poisoning in north India. Nobody cares for them. Shameless display of artificial love for cow by self-proclaimed rakshaks.

            As India faces multifaceted serious challenges on economic, Pak, Chinese fronts, an internal chaos and instability will prove to be disastrous. It is time to maintain peace and harmony.

                Rightly said! But one thing goes up my head. Is VHP showing eyes to PM or its mili-bhagat? Coz even in past RSS/Bajrang Dal/ VHP never cared what Modi said but carried on their mission of terrorising minorities. RSS its 40 other outfits must be banned immediately if PM wants peace in India.
