Even Mughals knew they can’t rule if they openly support cow slaughter: Rajnath

New Delhi (PTI): Insisting that cow should be protected, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh today said even the Mughals were aware of the fact that if they had to rule then an “open support to cow slaughter” would not be feasible while the Britishers failed to understand this aspect.

The senior BJP leader said that as a Home Minister he has ensured that cattle smuggling to Bangladesh was checked, with continued efforts by Border Security Force (BSF) personnel.

“Whatever little information I have about Mughal rulers …I can say that the Mughal rulers were aware of this fact. They understood that by killing cows and giving an open support to cow slaughter they cannot rule for a longer period.

“Even Babur, in his will, has written, we can’t do two things at one time. Either rule the hearts of people or eat cow’s meat. Only one thing can happen… They cannot be done together,” Singh said.

He was speaking at a conference on conservation of cow, organised by Rashtriya Godhan Mahasangh, in association with the Agriculture Ministry.

“After the British came to India, the way Indian tradition had to be respected… it was not done. In fact, it became worse. One of the main reasons for the first war of Independence (1857) was cow fat which was used in cartridges. This shows the faith of people towards cow,” he said.

Asked whether the Centre would impose a ban on cow slaughter as was demanded by some of the attendees at the conference, Union Minister of State for Environment and Forest Praskash Javdekar said it is a call which state governments need to take.

Singh said that all scientific, historic and cultural aspects related to cow need to be well thought upon.

Elaborating on the work in protecting cows done by the government after he took charge as Home Minister, Singh said due to the efforts taken by BSF personnel, cattle smuggling to Bangladesh has come down.

“When I took charge of the office, within a month, I had decided to visit Indo-Bangladesh border to take stock of cow smuggling in the region. Stopping smuggling was very difficult… riverines, rivers, difficult terrain. You have to fight with smugglers.

“I went to Border Security Force personnel and while addressing them, I said the success of the meeting will be when we are able to stop smuggling,” he said.

Singh said the government has allocated Rs 500 crore for cow conservation and two centres have been set up to for conducting research on cows of Indian breed.

    BUT HE AND HIS RSS SHOULD KNOW THAT THEY TOO CAN NOT HAVE TWO THINGS TOGETHER; VIZ, HINDU VOTE BANK AND APPEASEMENT OF MUSLIMS BY SENDING MANGOES TO PAK PRIME MINISTER AND SENDING EID MUBARAK WHILE PAKISTAN IS ENGAGED IN UNPRECEDENTED TERRORISM!

    BUILD RAM TEMPLE, REMOVE ARTICLE 370 AND BRING IN UNIFORM CIVIL CODE IMMEDIATELY. TAKE BACK THE OCCUPIED KASHMIR, VACATE CHINESE AGGRESSION AND BAN BEEF THROUGH OUT INDIA – INCLUDING IN BJP RULED GOA, KASHMIR AND MEGHALAYA!

  2. There is no excuse must be given to the Home Minister, the ardent cow lover to enact a national beef ban law with very strict jail term of more than 10 years as mandatory punishment in Haryana along with monetary punishment. Also, the Home Minister’s cow love must be broadcasted every day,
    his cow cleaning, urine drinking and finally feeding the cow by himself. Else, he must shut up for ever talking about the holy cows. What kind of an ill-fate has fallen upon India now under the BJP Government?

  3. Even Mughals knew they can’t rule if they openly support cow slaughter: Rajnath.

    ALL THIS IS “DAGA BAJI” BY RSS AND THE MUGHALS!

    RSS knows that it should not openly support cow slaughter IN HINDU MAJORITY AREAS OF INDIA. That is why it loudly proclaims ban on beef, like the Mughals did, while, secretly allowing cow slaughter in RSS/BJP ruled states like Goa, Kashmir, Meghalaya, etc where the non-Hindus are majority! For, the majority community’s support to grab power in those Christian and Muslim Majority states require allowing cow slaughter by RSS.

    Ban on Cow Slaughter or permitting it, is not “an article of faith” for the RSS, but a tactic to procure support by the majority depending on local winnability conditions in elections.

    RSS and Mughals, both knew that to get majority support, they must permit cow slaughter in non-Hindu Majority areas and ban it in Hindu majority areas. BOTH ARE CHEATS!

    The Mughals used ban on cow slaughter to rule the Hindus and the RSS is also using it to rule this Hindu majority country!

    Even during the Sepoy Mutiny, the religious sentiments of both the Hindus and the Muslims against tallow from cows and pigs was used by the Hindu Kings, the Nawabs and the last Mughal Emperor Bahadur shah Zafar; BUT TO UNITE HINDUS AND MUSLIMS AGAINST THE BRITISH, AND NOT TO DIVIDE THEM! The effect, Bahadur shah Zafar was declared “Hindustan ke Badshah”, the Bhagava Dhwaj was hoisted on the Red Fort and a Hindu was appointed Prime Minister of India by the Mughal Emperor!

    The electoral winnability decides whether RSS must ban cow slaughter or allow it depending on the religious demography. Cow is not a god or Gomata, but a mere tool to win elections for the BJP!

  4. Dear readers,

    It is finally a open truth from the RSS mouth that Mughals are not barbarisist and Islam has not spread in India by sword.

    I appreciate Mr.Rajnath for admitting the truth in public.But he has only taken the half context of the Babur’s actual will( wasiyat-nama) to his son Humayun.

    According to a document available in the State Library of Bhopal, Mughal Emperor Babur left the following will to his son Humayun:

    “My son take note of the following: do not harbour religious prejudice in your heart. You should dispense justice while taking note of the people’s religious sensitivities, and rites. Avoid slaughtering cows in order that you could gain a place in the heart of natives. This will take you nearer to the people.

    “Do not demolish or damage places of worship of any faith and dispense full justice to all to ensure peace in the country. Islam can better be preached by the sword of love and affection, rather than the sword of tyranny and persecution. Avoid the differences between the Shias and Sunnis. Look at the various characteristics of your people just as characteristics of various seasons.”

    He first tells his son that he should steer clear of any kind of religious prejudice and, keeping in mind the religious sentiments and customs of the people, he should be just to all of them without exception. This is what may be identified as an important precept of secularism in modern India.

    Second, anticipating serious crises in community relations (and something which communal politicians have long exploited), Babur advises a ban on cow-slaughter, which will help to earn a place in the hearts of the majority population. This small gesture can go a long way in what he calls binding people into submission with a chain of obligation and gratitude.

    Third, relevant to the Ayodhya controversy and demolitions and desecrations in the wake of a politics of aggression, Babur suggests that rulers have no right to destroy the places of worship of any community. They should not discriminate against anyone; this is important for a harmonious relation between the ruler and the people — a pre-requisite, according to him, for peace and tranquillity in the country.

    Fourth, relevant especially for enthusiastic Islamists, Islam can be disseminated better with the sword of love and affection than with the sword of terror and bloodshed. This is not to be confused with allegations today about love-jihad, but refers to what Sufi figures such as the Chishtis did in shunning dirty politics and seeking to win the hearts of the people, irrespective of caste or creed. In continuation of this perceptive understanding of struggles and debates within Islam and the need to rise above sectarian violence, Babur offers sane advice to ignore Shia-Sunni disputes, which originated in early Islamic history and have ruptured Islamic unity and its strength.

    Finally, recognising the diversities — regional, linguistic, religious — which leaders must take into account with sensitivity, Babur comes up with a remarkable suggestion: to treat the diverse temperaments of the population as the different seasons of the year, so that the government and the public remain safe from disease and the consequent weakness. In other words, ensure that the atmosphere between communities is not vitiated by the compulsions of populist politics.

    If a 16th century emperor could see the wisdom in this approach, why can’t our 20th century political and religious leaders do the same?

    Is BJP ready to tender apology to the nation for the bloodshed which Pakistani born L.K.Advani took the lead to sow the seed of hate and dethrone the prestigious award being given.

    People in power would do well to heed the above advice; for, after all, some wounds never heal and require circumspection and prudence in their handling.

    Jai Hind
