Protection of human rights is more important than protection of cows!


I don’t eat beef. Because I was told not to from childhood and so have an inbuilt abhorrence to it. It is neither based on science nor do I see the cow as a mother figure. My mother passed away 18 years ago and she was all the mum I needed and more, much more, and no cud-chewing three-stomached animal is going to be a proxy. But to go after human beings with a zeal that is suited more to savages is now bordering on the absurd. The deliberate and vicious beating up of four or six or seven Dalit men by a gang in Una town in Gujarat, and the flock of human sheep who watched the atrocity without a murmur of protest, is sickening.

Mob has no right to grant justice to anyone. Animal rights and imposition of ones belief are two separate things. We have to look it holistically. No person or organisation can or should be permitted to violate the fundamental rights of the citizens. Yes, I agree cow holds a unique place in rural economy of India. But, everything has to done under the processes established by law. If a person or organisation feels someone is deliberately breaking law of animal cruelty. He should report it to the authorities. Taking law under ones hand is the sign of anarchy. We have rule of law and our constitution provides perfect balance between human rights and communitys emotions. Cow slaughter has established procedure in respective states and every organisation has to follow it. Strict action should be taken against organisations inciting violence as well as participating in it. On the other hand, if illegal slaughter has taken place the police needs to work according to the law of the land.

In India cow is considered as sacred animal, simultaneously it is embodiment of an agricultural way of life. The recent incidents of cow slaughtering disrupted the society with atrocities and violence on some sections. Cow protection movement is not new it has its prints in18th century British India itself and gained momentum with the support from Arya Samaj and its founding father Swami Dayanand Saraswati. Anit-cow slaughter communities mainly relay on cow and considered as their main source of economy as it provides "Panchagavya" a mixture of five products like milk,curd,ghee,urine and dung. They also believe that the cows urine acts as medicine for many diseases and it is an icon and honoured in festivals as well. On the other hand communities who believe in slaughtering cow observe cow in perspective of their economic source by marketing them and this makes weaker section sometimes to pay their life and brutally punished. Government has to take proper action to avoid the atrocities that are happening in the society against the weaker section and govt has to treat it as threat to democracy as soon as possible before it goes to zenith. Also committee must be formed to look into the cow protection act and reform to be accomplished.

Protection of human rights and the protection of cows or any other living being for that matter has to be considered equal. We cannot compromise one for another. Cows are useful to humans through out their life and even after they are dead.its only when they near the end of their lifespan that they are slaughtered and after death they are skinned as against the view that we reduce its s life span for meat and leather. Human rights involve right to life and also to live with dignity .it covers what a person chooses to eat as well .no person can interfere with what another person wants to eat. Its a violation of fundamental rights. By eating its meat humans definitely do not violate the cows right to live as its done only when it reaches the end of its life span thus saving it pain and reducing the burden for the poor farmer who owns it. When we harass people whose diet includes beef or whose occupation involves skinning dead animals we are violating their fundamental right to live and in no way does it help the poor bovine creature that we claim to protect.

The so called Cow protectors are just bringing discredit to the name itself Cow Protection Activists by doing such inhuman activities. Dalits have always been dependent on such activities for centuries to feed themselves as well as their family. From the point of view of humanity, there is nothing wrong in skinning a dead-animal whether its cow or horse, but it is very insane to beat a person brutally for doing this act. The person performing such cruel acts, take the shade of the accusation called religious sentiments. The same people will not utter even a single word when they have more bigger problem really hurting their religious sentiments including cruel acts on living animals, thousands of acres of forests are either submerged/ evacuated/ burned for so called development. The governments which showcasing themselves as Dalit Rakshak at the time of election, just to capture the vote bank of this unprivileged section of the society but once they won, their priorities just get transferred from Dalit raksha to Gau-Raksha. In the 21st century when we are forecasting to see our nation in the list of developed countries, such mean ful acts just pushes us a step back. For the notion of human equality, we must always put the human rights way above our all religious sentiments as well as making a right balance with the animal protection.

The cry and hue of human rights are more sounded these days (thanks to our now more democratic citizens). Of course in the good democratic country we can expect the sanctity and dignity of human rights in society as well as peoples mind. One thing should be taken into account - human rights also demand the respect of belief and thought of everyone. On the name of protection of owns human rights, neither it should be allowed nor it is justifiable to hurt the sentiments of others. Thus rights are circumvent to the extent of equal respect towards others practices. An the same time, the limiting factor should be honored by the others in the same inspiration as it has imposed on human right of first party. Protection of human rights and cows both are important. If slaughtering of cow hurts someone then we should ban it. We shouldnt take undue advantage of our right enshrined in Art 21. We should also take care that if someones right has proved to be unfair for particular activity and that person has been debarred from using such right then we should maintain the dignity of cause. In very simple words, cow slaughtering should be banned but we should take proper care of cows. The very cause should be well honored by same brother always.
