Slaughter cows, and you’ll slaughter the economy!

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized
The first slaughterhouse in India was started in 1760, with a capacity to kill 30,000 animals per day. At least one crore cows were killed in a year.
Once the cows were slaughtered, then there was no manure and there is no insecticide like cow urine.
In 1740 in the Arcot District of Tamil Nadu, 54 Quintals of rice was harvested from one acre of land using simple manure and pesticides like cow urine and cow dung.
As a result of the 350 slaughterhouses which worked day and night by 1910 India was practically bereft of gau. India had to approach Britain’s doorstep for industrial manure. Thus industrial manure like urea and phosphate made way to India.

Gandhi promised, that the day India attains Independence, all the slaughter houses in India would be closed.
In 1929 Nehru in a public meeting stated that if he were to become the prime minister of India, the first thing he would do is to stop all the slaughterhouses.
The tragedy of the situation is since 1947 the number of slaughterhouses has increased from 350 to 36,000.

A clash of opinions online discussion:
– First we should worry about the millions of people living in streets and shanty towns before we star worrying about the cows.
– The root reason they are living in the streets and the shantytowns is because the cows were slaughtered during the last centuries and the villagers were forced into the cities.
Blind leading a blind, what would be the fate of such a nation but this?
When we begin solving a problem independently, without bothering to know the root cause for that problem, we will find ourselves continuously trapped in that mire.
The very reason is cow slaughter. Every action has got equal and opposite reaction. This is just not science law, but also law of nature.
We are paying the price of our misdeeds. It cannot be helped.
So, if we are really worried about those people, we should help them come out of ignorance and help cow protection and go-seva. It might help the society at large to come out of this suffering.
Many times I come across queries like “What is so special about cow? Cow is also, after all, an animal, why do we need to differentiate?”
As a human being we are supposed to be more intelligent and act with more responsibility.
Like there are many plants and trees, but Tulasi has special significance; there are many planets and stars, but sun has special significance, there are many women around but place of a mother is a significant and a different one; similarly there are many animals, but cow is a special one. Cow has spiritual significance.
Another person adds:
– I have researched myself, Gomutra (cow urine) and Gobar (cow dung) have more mineral contents than all Revital type mineral supplements together.
First we moved these inputs from our food chain by moving them out of our agriculture and now we spend money on these artificially synthesized vitamins and mineral supplements which are less than 10% effective compared to natural variety…
