Strongly advocating protection of cows, the BJP MP said, “A strong law should be put in place to hang people responsible for cow slaughter.”

He also backed Haryana Chief Minister Manoharlal Khattar’s controversial “Muslims should quit eating beef” statement, saying there was nothing wrong in it.

Defending his partymen’s action in Jammu and Kashmir’s Assembly, Sakshi Maharaj said, “J&K independent MLA’s assault was just a reaction. His action hurt the masses and he was beaten up.”

“Leaders need to change their mindset or get beaten up by the people in full public view,” the BJP MP from Unnao in Uttar Pradesh said addressing an event organised by International Hindu Mahasangha.

Mr Rashid was recently assaulted in the state assembly after he allegedly hosted a beef party in Srinagar. On the Ram temple issue, Sakshi Maharaj said the temple would be built during the tenure of the Narendra Modi government.

“It may not be today or tomorrow, Sri Ram Mandir will certainly be built during Modi government’s tenure. We have completed just one year in office, four more years are to go,” he said.

    Now another elected representative from Modi’s good governance swami Sakshi Maharaj wanted to rub salt into somebody’s wounds.

    In Independent day addressing to the nation Feku declared that he would like to run the country on the basis of consensus and not on majority in Parliament and called for a 10-year moratorium on caste and communal violence in the country.In recent Bihar election rally he says “The country has to stand united. Harmony, brotherhood and peace will lead us to development,” . In America he is pitching for ‘Digital India’,’Make in India’ and presenting India as America of south Asia.

    As an evidence to the ‘development’ Modi’s government acknowledged that there is rise in communal violence.

    Communal violence shows 24% jump in first five months of 2015, shows govt data

    “A Rat is Lord Ganesha’s ride.. everyone kills rats by poisoning them, or they are killed/used in lab testing.. no one blinks an eye-lid.. Monkeys are a roop of Hanuman.. they are mistreated in circuses and are killed in lab testing.. no one bothers.He further asked for the ban on killing of snake, fish, pigs, buffalo, owl, crow and frog, citing these animals’ relevance in Hindu religion.”The snake is revered too as it is around Shiva’s neck and also there is a festival called ‘Nag Panchmi’.. but snakes are killed the moment people spot them.. Pigs are killed for ham and bacon, but Varaha devta is worshipped by Hindus. Fish ( matsya ) is the first avatar of Lord Vishnu,”Buffalo is the sawari of Lord Yamaraj. Owl is the sawari of Lakshmi. Crow is the sawari of Shani (Saturn ), one of the navgrahs or 9 planets. Frog ( manduk ) is the name of one of our Puranas,” will Sakshi Maharaj will demand the death penalty for cruelty to animals in such cases?

    Why can’t be first victim of the death penalty if Ministry of Commerce and Industry and Minister of Food Processing Industries who are responsible for the Meat export which is now a $5 billion industry, not only replacing basmati rice as the biggest revenue earner in India’s processed foods category, but also making India the world’s second-biggest meat exporter.

    If BJP is ruled centuries ago they would have eradicated Aryans of the Rig Veda who killed cows for purposes of food and ate beef is abundantly,asked death penalty for Swami vivekananda and Father of Indian constitution Dr.Ambedkar.

    Ambedkar On Beef-Eating And Hinduism

    In the Vedas there is a mention of around 250 animals out of which at least 50 were supposed to be fit for sacrifice and consumption. In the Mahabharata there is a mention of a king named Rantideva who achieved great fame by distributing food grains and beef to Brahmins. Taittiriya Brahman categorically tells us: `Verily the cow is food’ (atho annam via gauh) and Yajnavalkya insistence on eating the tender (amsala) flesh of the cow is well known. Even later Brahmanical texts provide the evidence for eating beef. Even Manusmriti did not prohibit the consumption of beef.Is RSS political wing BJP ready to debate on this holy relics or they will ban those books?

    If Narendra Modi the prime minister is a product of the United Progressive Alliance’s policy paralysis, the politico Modi remains the progeny of the Godhra carnage. The shiv sena is right in their assessment “No Godhra means no Modi” . In the same note “No Beef ban No BJP”.

    Former Supreme Court judge Justice Markandey Katju right in his statement , “Our politicians of all parties are mostly a set of rogues who should have been hanged a long time back”.

    Sadly Mahatma Gandhi India which showed ‘Ahimsa'(Non violence) is being long silenced by Nathuram Godse. Now BJP is busy wiping Gandhi’s once for all and removed ‘A’ from ‘Ahimsa’ and resorted to ‘Himsa’ by polarising the diversified nation.

    Jai hind
