Cow slaughter is already banned in all but a few states, yet it continues rampant and unabated in illegal, unlicensed abattoirs all throughout the country, including in the states where it is banned. In fact, according to one estimate, there are approximately 32,000 unlicensed abattoirs in operation in India today. Moreover, countless cows are reportedly transported in gruesome conditions and smuggled across the West Bengal border into Bangladesh to be killed. A total ban on cow slaughter will not have any real effect unless unlicensed abattoirs are also closed and transport is monitored but DEFINITELY IT WILL CURTAIL THE ACTIVITIES TO THE MINIMUM LEVEL AND WE ARE THANKFUL TO THE KARNATAKA GOVERNMENT FOR PASSING THE BILL AFTER THOROUGH DISCUSSION.. As it stands now, most police and government officials turn a blind eye to the thriving illegal slaughter trade BUT NOW WITH THE REQUIRED POWERS IN HAND,THEY WILL BE MORE VIGILANT..
THE BAN ON COW SLAUGHTER IN KARNATAKA IS A VALID STEP AND NEEDS THE SUPPORT OF ONE AND ALL ABOVE THE PARTY POLITICS..ENTIRE JAIN AND HINDU COMMUNITY IS OBLIGED BY THIS.IF NOT IN INDIA THEN WHAT YOU THINK IT WILL HAPPEN IN BANGLADESH OR PAKISTAN ?
