Beef festival – Could we have ever imagined such festival in the era of ‘Nandini’ or ‘Kamadhenu’ ?
Beef festival is likely to be conducted on December 10, 2015, by Asaduddin Owaisi in Osmania University, Hyderabad. On the other hand, Telangana BJP MLA T. Raja Singh Lodh has said that he will not let it happen at any cost regardless of whether or not Modi government supports him in this noble cause. Every citizen has the right to eat whatever one likes to, provided it does not hurt religious sentiments of anyone. T. Raja Singh has entrusted a memorandum in this purpose to the Chief Secretary of the Higher Education Department in order to bring such festival to a halt wherein malafide political intents are involved. Some BJP members, along with those of Vishwa Hindu Parishad, Chief of Hindu Sena – Vishnu Gupta and Suresh Chavhanke, Editor-in-Chief of Sudarshan News, are supposed to reach at the venue. It is all going to be conducted at a place with such values where even Raman Maharshi treated a cow (that is said to have become enlightened by Him) at par with the standards he used to do with His venerable mother. This is the holy land of India where king Dilip Raghuvanshi (Ancestor of Lord Rama) took no time to declare that his own life be taken by the violent lion whose motive was to kill that cow (‘Nandini’) and here in the very same country, beef festival is being planned just for political interests and to increase the gap between two communities, while the communities can live well together without political drama & influences and would definitely like to lead a peaceful life than facing riots/nuisance.
Discrepancies by the government have been on increase, the alleged Hinduism (synonym for humanity) supportive party has changed its motives, which is obviously not in nation’s welfare.
The nation’s ‘Pradhan Sevak’, who criticized meat exports in 2014 elections, has removed ban from the export of flesh of buffaloes and cows, according to ‘The Hindu’. From January to March 2015; 74,000 kilo flesh worth INR 29.85 lakh was exported, which increased to INR 10.95 crores from the period of April to August 2015 and 2.7 million kilo meat was exported. Is it justified and fair to slaughter the naive unvoiced animals and export their meat in other countries ?
It would be better to safeguard the interests of the unspoken animals and on the other side it would be appreciated if the export in terms of agricultural products is increased by encouraging the farmers (starving in the nation) by giving them subsidy and assistance for agriculture as well as horticulture.
