Violence by vigilantes

Saturday, September 09, 2017

PRIME Minister Narendra Modi has expressed strong views on cow vigilantes and warned strict action would be taken against those who break laws and become violent. He has done this more than once. Most of the BJP leaders however choose to be silent on the subject. All over the country, cow vigilantes are seen rushing to the protection of cows. They strongly feel it is their right and duty to protect cows. The law in this regard is broken across the country frequently.

Cow vigilantes feel a law has been passed to save cows and they are actually doing what the law says. They complain that the government's measure not doing enough to protect cows. Every day laws with regard to cow protection are being broken but the police are not doing enough. Cow vigilantes feel they are only helping maintain cow protection laws.

The latest attack on cow vigilantes comes from the Supreme Court itself. The SC has asked governments to stop violence by cow vigilantes. Appeals and orders from "secular" sources are not likely to have the desired results. These must come from another source: religious heads. Those who want to defy the law with regard to cow protection are likely to clash with those who want to have the "right to privacy". Millions of people want to protect the sacred cows and millions want to eat beef. It looks like only Narendra Modi's exhortings and appeals to people are not enough.
