Topic: cow slaughter
Members of the Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha killed a cow in Agra, Uttar Pradesh with the intention of stirring up violence against Muslims and falsely implicating three Muslim men in the crime.
The Bharatiya Janata Party’s Meghalaya unit chief Ernest Mawrie has said that there was no restriction on consuming beef in the state and that he too eats it.
A 22-year-old Muslim youth was sentenced to life in prison by sessions court at Vyara in Tapi district in Gujarat for “llegally transporting cow and its progeny for the purpose of slaughter.”
While the Muslims in India celebrate Eid al-Adha, the festival of sacrifice, Hindu nationalists have started running a hashtag — #BanBakraEid on Twitter. The hashtag topped the twitter feeds and was trending at number one for some days around the festival of Eid al-Adha or famously known as Bakrid in India.
A 53-year-old Muslim woman, named Roshni who resisted her son's detention in a cow slaughter case, died in police firing at Islamnagar village in Uttar Pradesh's Sidhharthnagar district on late Saturday night.
While quashing a detention order passed under the draconian National Security Act (NSA) against 3 Muslim men who have been accused of cutting small pieces of beef for selling purposes in a house in secrecy, The Allahabad High Court observed that the slaughtering a cow in the secrecy of one’s home is not a matter involving public order.
