VHP, Bajrang Dal set deadline to ban cow slaughter

Vishwa Hindu Parishad and Bajarang Dal Mangalore units have warned a massive state-wide protest across Karnataka if cow- related crimes are not stopped completely by November 15. Addressing a press meet at Mangalore on 5 September, Zilla Go Rakshaka Pramukh Dinesh Pai said that even though cow-slaughter is banned and is considered a violation under the Karnataka Preservation of Cow Slaughter and Preservation of Cattle Act 1964, the illegal slaughtering continues in many places such as Kannur, Suralpadi, Jokatte, Kattipalla, Handelu, Kalabettu, Moodumurnadu, Kudroli, Ullal Sevanthi Gudde, Chembu Gudde, Alaykala, Dabbel, Angara Gundi and Venur. In many places illegal slaughter takes place inside houses. The Kudroli slaughter house which has violated norms of the Pollution Control Board is still functioning, he alleged adding that cows are illegally taken to Kerala for slaughter through Talapady, Mudipu, Devandha Paddu, Devipura and Huhakuva Kallu. The cows are transported in a violent and pathetic condition. Pai also alleged that many cows that are slaughtered are stolen. Many beef shops mix cow meat and mutton shops mix calf meat, he alleged.
