Beef vigilantes should be punished: Ramdas Athawale

16 Juillet 2017

"It is not right to become a "nar-bhakshak" (man-eater) in the name of being a "gau-rakshak" (cow protector)", said the Union Minister of State for Social Justice and Empowerment, acording to a PTI report. "These so-called "gau-rakshaks" are actually "nar-bhakshaks" who are defaming our government by such acts", he added. "These people are indulging in goondaism; they do not care about cows", Athawale told DNA over the phone from Mumbai.

Expressing his disappointment over a spate of violent incidents under the name of cow protection, Athawale said that the cow vigilantes should not take the law into their hands. If you think that someone is breaking the law, then they should head to the police station.

On July 14, 2015, NASA's New Horizons spacecraft made its historic flight through the Pluto system. The view moves north, passing over Dorothy Gale crater and the dark polar hood of Mordor Macula.

Addressing the media, he said in recent months, many people have been beaten, some of whom lost their lives, for suspected possession or transport of beef or meat of other animals. He also noted that the so called cow vigilantes as cannibals.

The minister's statement came days after Maharashtra was rocked by beef-related incidents - two in Pune and one in Nagpur - in which four persons were arrested and a former BJP activist brutally assaulted on suspicions of transporting beef by a mob of cow vigilantes respectively. "With the new law in place, farmers are finding it hard to cope", he said.
