As if we needed further evidence of the Congress trampling over Hindu sentiments.
If they want to make a point about freedom to eat beef, fine. I am willing to listen. That’s one of the reasons I don’t support Indira Gandhi.
But such barbarism and ritual slaughter of a poor calf just so they can raise slogans against Narendra Modi? Some videos on TV channels show the poor creature being chased into an open vehicle, Congress workers sharpening their knives and then proceeding to torture and kill it.
Who is the animal here? The meek gentle one being tortured to death or the bloodthirsty ones attacking it?
Of course, now would be the time when fashionable NGOs and animal rights activists go on vacation.
Where are the people who protested against the so called cruelty of traditional Jallikattu? Also on vacation I suppose.
Where are the celebrities who post cute pictures just before Diwali telling us not to use crackers for the sake of poor animals, reminding us to #BePawsitive ?
Remember the political party that cried copious tears for the police horse Shaktiman? This even came from their official handle.
I read this somewhere : “Hindus have no human rights and cows have no animal rights“.
Or as George Orwell famously put it: All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.
