KASHGUNJ: A Muslim villager is hailed as a hero on the social media after a video of him helping an ailing cow, abandoned on roadside by the custodians and caretakers surfaced.
The video is from Bhargain town of Kasganj district of Uttar Pradesh state.
According to a report, the stray and ailing cow was lying on the roadside since last few days but none dare to care for the poor animal.
When Rehan Khan noticed the cow, he immediately rushed to the rescue. He provides the cattle relief from chilling cold and also arranged fodder.
“Then I contacted Satish Chandra Gupta, the Principal of RBL College who called the officials of the local veterinary department”, Rehan said.
An official of the local veterinary department said, “What Rehan Khan has done is exemplary and a slap on the face of the people who wants to destroy the communal fabric and unity of the country.”
In today’s communal politics, Muslims, especially are not expected to care of a cow or else will get brutally thrashed by the so-called infuriated ‘gau rakshaks‘ on suspicion of selling or slaughtering the ‘gau mata.’
