Cattle Slaughter Ban: Declare Cow As National Animal, Says Rajasthan HC

Contributing to the high-decibel debate over cattle slaughter, the Rajasthan High Court said, on Wednesday, that the cow should be declared a national animal.

The judgment also said that the cow should be declared a national animal as this would make the animal a "legal entity" and allow the government to appoint persons in loco parentis for its protection.

Describing himself as a "Shiv bkaht", the judge, on the eve of his retirement, gave a ruling relating to the Hingonia Gaushala of Jaipur.

Internet services have also been blocked to deny rumour mongers any chance of vitiating the atmosphere further. The Gandhi scion had sought permission to visit Saharanpur on Saturday.

Last year, 50,000 cows reportedly died at the government-run cow shelter in Jaipur due to alleged negligence. India is a predominant agriculture country based in animal rearing.

In this incident, the High Court judge said that the peacock is a national bird as it does not have sex and is celibate or "Brahmachari".

A single-judge bench of Justice Mahesh Chand Sharma also appointed the chief secretary and the advocate general of the state to be the legal custodians of the cow.

He said: "Cow is the basis if the spirituality of all the Hindus and keeping this belief in mind, such direction were issued". It also insisted that punishment for cow slaughter should be increased from the current three years of imprisonment to life term. Interestingly the court's recommendations came a day after Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje in an interview with a newspaper agency stressed that firm action will be taken against those behind violent crimes, including cow vigilantes. Earlier a year ago, following the death of over a hundred cows in the past few weeks at the government-run cowshed in Jaipur, the Rajasthan Government had sought a report on the matter and vowed to improve the situation in Hingonia Gaushala.

This comes amid the protest in several areas in the country like Kerala, Tamil Nadu, West Bengal and Tripura over the Centre's notification banning the sale of cattle for slaughter at animal markets. Seeing the escalating number of cow smuggling and slaughter, the Center used animal cruelty laws to curb illegal transportation and killing of cattle in all states. "Similarly, cows should be given that status".
