General Secretary of VHP Praveen Togadia remarked against cow slaughter on the occasion of Eid-ul-Adha. He was addressing a press conference in Hyderaba in Jain Bhavan. He strongly pretested against the failure of State Government for not takin gany action on cow slaughter cases. He told the Chief Minister to resign his port if he can’t take any stern action in this regard. Expressing wonder at the number of cows slaughtered on Eid-ul-Adha, he said that the sentiments of the Hindus have been hurt by it. It seems that the Government is ignorant of Abolition of Cow Slaughter Act.
He appealed to the followers of Hinduism to launch a countrywide protest against Communal violence Bill because an attempt is being make through this bill to enslave the Hindus.
Targeting Prime Minister Dr. Monmohan Singh, he told that he has attributed PM of Pakistan Mr. Yousuf Raza Geelani as a peace loving person, is very deplorable because a few days back, five Hindus were killed in Pakistan, by declaring him as a peace loving person, a desire has spring in the heart of Dr. Manmohan Singh to contest elections from his native place in Pakistan. This is the reason he is trying to appease the people of Pakistan.
Commenting on the life sentence awarded by High Court, Mr. Togadia said that it is unjust. Writ petition would be filed against this judgement and effort will be made to set them free as they are innocent.
He expressed his apprehensions that if the Communal Violence Bill is passed in the Parliament, Hindus would be targeted.
Mr. Togadia participated I the “Shraddhanjali” ceremony in the honour of the cows slaughtered on the occation of Eid-ul-Adha.
He said that the Hindus treat cow as their mother and they believe that they are its sons. This is the reason why the Hindus can’t tolerate sacrificing their mother because their sentiments are hurt by doing so.
