Enact central law to protect cow: VHP

New Delhi, Oct 16 (IANS) The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) on Friday asked the central government to enact a law banning cow slaughter.

“To honour its commitment, public sentiments… the union government should not delay it (law banning cow slaughter) any more,” Surendra Jain, the VHP’s international joint secretary general, said in a statement.

He also urged the Congress and other other political parties to help ensure a complete ban.

“Leaving behind narrow political motives, the Congress and other parties should come forward for a total ban. It should be remembered that the Congress had banned cow slaughter in many states during its tenure,” Jain said.

The Himachal Pradesh High Court on Wednesday asked the central government to consider enacting a law prohibiting slaughter of cows within three months.

The court also directed the central government to allocate funds to the Himachal government for providing shelter and fodder to cows and formulate special schemes for their protection.
