Cow fights

Cow fights,

Spaniards fight with bulls while Indians fight over cows.
The holy cow has made many Indians so aggressive that they are ready to kill people for cows. Only man drinks milk post childhood. He has spoilt his pets too with milk.
Cow is reared for dairy purpose only and post an age it stops giving milk (after 3-4 pregnancies) and becomes useless to the farmer who gives it to slaughter. If he intends to keep it he would have to feed it denting his income from other productive and profitable milking cows.
If the government wants to stop slaughter of cows then it should buy the dry cows from the farmer and rear it on public money. Then the farmers’ gain would be the citizen’s pain/loss who would be paying Income Tax for rearing cows.
It would be better to stop using milk which will finally stop raising dairy cattle and ultimately there would be no cows to slaughter and we could always pray to the holy cow in heaven Kamadhenu seen in photos!
Indians never protested the 52 days of hardship of note ban. Hence there would be no protest if the Government of India buys all the cattle from the farmers and rear it. The farmers should be adequately compensated so that they could start other ventures, of course those which are not prohibited by culture.

    I just have one question. Who are we to take life?
    It dents the farmer’s income. Agreed. But that is not a valid reason to kill it. My grandfather is retired. He doesn’t do any work and takes up a part of my father’s earnings. Does this mean that he should be slaughtered?
    Ahimsa parmo dharam.
    Think over it. ✌

      The problem is man’s need for milk. Why does man drink milk? In all types of agriculture what are done to the waste after taking the crop. There is no problem there as there are no living beings. In dairy farming dry cows are not viable. A farmer cannot support them as they generate no income. They cannot be sustained through public money also. Unearning individuals cannot be compared here. As long as India is not a vegetarian state dry cows become beef. We should consider this as part of the food chain. If fish and chicken are not holy then cow too is not. The only holy cow, Kamadhenu, is safe in heaven and is thankfully not dry.

    And yes, those who kill other people in the name of protecting cows are greater sinners.

    Yes, we have to become vegetarians, but that would be a far cry.
