Varanasi: Cow cannot be anyone’s mother, it’s just another animal: Katju

Varanasi (PTI): Describing lynching of a man near Delhi over rumours that he had consumed beef as “politically motivated”, former Supreme Court judge Markande Katju today said cow was just another animal “which cannot be anyone’s mother”.

“Cow is just an animal and an animal cannot be anyone’s mother, if I like to eat beef then what’s harm in it, even people worldwide consume beef, if I like to too eat then who can stop me…” he said during a function at Banaras Hindu University here.

Katju said he too ate beef and was not harm in it.

“Are those people across the world who eat beef are bad and only we (in the country) who don’t eat are saints and seers, whats harm in it when people eat beef, I too eat and will even continue to eat further…” he said.

The former Allahabad High Court judge strongly condemned the killing of the man in Dadri and demanded severe punishment to those involved in it.

“I too came to know from media and others that an announcement was made from (inside) a temple that a man eats beef and then mob rushed and lynched that man.

“What could be more unfortunate than this that a man is killed on the basis of rumour and for no other reason. The culprits must be given severe punishment at an earliest,” he told reporters.

Later, agitated over Katju’s remarks, several students staged protest and shouted slogans against him.

They also tried to block the way of Katju while he was heading to the seminar hall. Later the security guards shielded Katju and took him wit them.

Iqlakh was dragged out of his home and stoned to death on a village street after a public announcement from the local temple that the family had slaughtered a calf and eaten its meat. While Iqlakh died, his 22-year-old son Danish is battling for life at a hospital following two brain surgeries.

  1. Finally, the well known people of the society will be opening their eyes and mouth to speak out against the 21st century insanity of India. The non-beef eaters of India are the greatest saints of the world; and the beef eaters all over the world are the worst sinners of the world; GOD might have designed a special hell for the beef-eaters or in the reincarnation process, they will be transformed as Tasmanian devils, the most ruthless animals in the world.

    The cow population is the largest animal population in the world. GOD didn’t create them with tiger or leopard brain, but a brain of amicability to interact with the human beings. What about goats-buffalo and other milking animals? If the Creator created them with the wild animal brains, what would have been the final outcome.

    Those people who don’t want to eat beef or chicken or fish, that is their total and full freedom. Nobody has the right to impose on them to eat beef or any meat or fish. But, enacting laws to prohibit the eating of beef or any meat which is the personal and fundamental right of every human being on earth, that is systematically being introduced in India under the shade of Hindu theocracy is an outright human rights violation. Besides, the cold blooded murder, what a travesty of justice is this, under the New Government of India?

    What a great joke is this? These cow mother lovers have no love for their mothers, the mothers are eating trash and living like unwanted mothers. Some of these great mother lovers will not touch their mother ever; but their love and adoration towards their cow mother is too deep and great.

    • Human beings are also just another animals. – Rampa

      Hmm.. that sure explains why ONLY humans migrate to greener pastures for better ‘fuloos’ and a better lifestyle. (And you can just ignore the OTHER ANIMALS that our Pradhana Sevaka forgot to mention when he said – “There was a time when Indians were ASHAMED to be born in India”.

      That surely explains why ONLY Human beings need Travel dox.. and are given the right to Vote.

      And talking about travel dox…. wasn’t somebody’s Visa pulled up in 2005 by none other than BoddaPPanna?

      Why doesn’t some New Jersey Cow contest for elections in the US or in Akhanda Bharatha?

      After all, a human being is JUST ANOTHER animal. Right? So why not have some holy cows on board the US cabinet? DID I read you right, o Rampu?

      Man… Rampa…. please have some mercy on me! Pl don’t crack such wacky jokes. EVEN my neighbors are in splits.

      • “that sure explains why ONLY humans migrate to greener pastures…” writes our joker praveena Pinto.

        ONLY humans? At least, the reference to ‘greener pastures’ in the same sentence should have reminded him of something!! Then again, we are dealing with Praveena who is not very bright!! LOL Let me educate him – It’s not just humans. All animals migrate looking for greener pastures. Not just animals, even birds too!! If they stll have internet connection in your anganawaadi, go ahead and google it. LOL LOL LOL what a joker he is!!

        • It’s not just humans. All animals migrate looking for greener pastures. Not just animals, even birds too! – Rampanna

          Not so quick with your ಅಲ್ಸಂಡೆ ಶೂಟರ್ ya Rampa.

          But then, I must admit that since you have a problem in reading (let alone understanding it), let me highlight what I wrote for you again.

          “Hmm.. that sure explains why ONLY humans migrate to greener pastures for better ‘fuloos’ and a better lifestyle.”
          ——————————————————————————–
          Does the word ‘fuloos’ ring a bell? Does the phrase “better lifestyle” mean anything to you? Why JUST nitpick on the word “migrate”, take it in isolation and yammer on & on?

          And for God’s sake (your imaginary one, of course!), please don’t tell me that animals and birds migrate seeking “better FULOOS” and a “BETTER LIFESTYLE”.

          And oh, in case you have heard of this wonderful thing called the ‘internet’, please try searching the word ‘fuloos’.

          • Even after being educated by me, Joker continues to act dumb. He brings up some weird reference to ‘fuloos’ trying to discredit his own references to ‘migrate’ and ‘greener pastures’!! I’ve never seen anyone taking so much pleasure discrediting his own words!! Then again, we are dealing with US-rejected, Saudi-returned genius here.

  2. Human beings are social animals ..Not just animals. I love beef ,mutton chicken fish.I am lucky not to be born into an idiotic socity who think that others are inferior.
    I have come across a so called person in my society who thinks he is the king. He thinks those who eat fish, eggs, mutton chicken, beef are low class. But trust me if you stand near this guy he stinks worst than a pig.

    • Santosha,
      You don’t sound very ‘santosha’ in your post. I understand that you are simply following your foreign masters to treat other living beings as just another animal or birds. It’s not your fault. Not everyone is blessed with ability to think, reason and come to logical conclusions. This is not about low class or high class. This is about being civilized. Again, I understand how you are simply not capable of reasoning.

        So, in ಯಮ್ರೀಕ are your ಫೋರೀನ್ masters treating you like a ಪಕ್ಷಿ or a ಪ್ರಾಣಿ? ವಾಟ್ ಆರ್ ಯೂ ಟಾಕಿಂಗ್ ಯ ರಾಂಪ?

          Well, read the entire post and responses slooowwwly. May be, you will understand after 3-4 attempts!! smiles..

      I believe he must be eating a great deal of potatoes, yam, boiled seeds of jack-fruits and other edibles that result in gas formation and audible discharge of gases.

  3. When I was abroad decades ago, I would do extra work, especially of those people who had proceeded on annual or emergency leaves. I recall there was a gentleman called Gayle F. Twyman, who was a retired Colonel from the U.S. Marines officiating as the Division’s Business Manager. He would call me and say, “Nelson, you are not only doing your job, but also taking care of the work of your colleagues who are on leave. Take these meal coupons and enjoy at the American mess.” I do not know where is this gentleman, but I have always good words for him. Normally, the ex-Marines that I came across were rough, tough types with tattoos on their arms and all over their bodies, but they were mostly soldiers, Corporals and Sergeants and this was the second time I had come across a commissioned officer and moderately-ranked too and, therefore, the difference. I had also come across an ex-Marine Lieutenant, an interesting personality, but his speech was liberally sprinkled and interspersed with ‘Fs’ and ‘Bs’.

    Thanks to Mr. Twyman, I had the best of food in the American mess, viz. Turkey kebab, Sirloin steak, Tukey, grilled sausages, amazing salads, French apples and other things which I have forgotten. Beef is eaten all over the world, except in certain sections of the Indian populace. India is 3.3 million sq. kms. and has the largest cattle population in the world. Brazil is 8.5 million sq. kms. and has the second largest cattle population in the world. In Kerala, beef is eaten by Hindus, Muslims and Christians and their favourite preparation is the beef chilly, which they prepare very well and goes well as a side dish, as well as an accompaniment while having alcohol.

    If we are a democracy, then the Government has no right to interfere with what people eat, drink, watch, etc. Does Narendra Modi expect people to eat Gujarati food, i.e. oil-drenched chapattis, papdas, puris, sweetened dal and vegetables, sweets, etc.?

    I am a firm believer in Almighty God and lay emphasis on being God-fearing, rather than being a pseudo by pretending to be religious and committing all crimes, thefts, indulging in frauds and scandals. On this forum, there are many writers who talk about the superiority of their faiths in many words and sentences. Can any of these writers convince upon me without any shadow of doubt and proof of the Almighty God’s presence or action in setting up any religion, so that one can consider that religion as the God’s religion? We talk about heaven, hell and purgoratory, etc. Has any dead soul visited anyone to tell, where is he, what is he doing and how is he faring?

      Mr. Nelson, what do you think about this Chaddi called Deena Natha Bhatra (appointed by the RSS HQ in Nagpur) attempting to REWRITE Indian History? Well, you come across as erudite and well-read. And you surely don’t stop from calling a spade a ‘spade’!

      I have posted a brief snippet in an earlier post. Kindly browse through it and revert.

      CAN all this ACTUALLY happen in a Democracy? Well, the Daesh is TRYING to rewrite history by butchering people left, right and center! And by demolishing ancient monuments.

      What is the RSS trying to prove? That the 80% don’t consume more than their fair share of err.. you know what…….Punyakoti?

      • What is the RSS trying to prove? That the 80% don’t consume more than their fair share of err.. you know what…….Punyakoti?

        Dear Praveen, the legendary “Punya Koti” was neither dumb nor deaf. But the ‘Punyakoti’ you addressed is deaf and dumb. You will not get a response!

      • Mr. Praveen,

        Can you re-submit the post again, so that I can read and understand it before I make comments on this fanatical element.

        By the way, what is your full name? By just mentioning Praveen, you complicate things – because there are countless Praveens on this globe, scattered all over. Can you tell me what is your full name and from which place you hail from? All these years I have been just a mute and confused spectator to the ding-dong battles and wordy duels between you and Mr. Original R. Pai though, to be frank with you, it does not concern or affect me in any way. I respect both of you and wish you all the best.

        With regards,
        Nelson Lewis

        P.S.

        Can you tell me, why is the Advocate, Mr. B.N. Pai, off the radar? Is he having tete-a-tete with his icons?

      Dear Nelson,
      You just got listed as an ‘infidel’ by people waving black flags!! LOL Be careful!! LOL

  4. Mr. Nelson Lewis and other commentators, it is high time to speak out against this national calamity created by a bunch of totally self-centered autocrats straight away from the State of Gujarat to impose their authority upon the masses. Brazil is the leading beef exporter in the world and India ranks no 2, and India will be trying very hard to take over Brazil as the leading beef exporter in the world. But the people of India are afraid to eat beef since there is a death sword upon them, what kind of an irony is this? Did the 31% of the electorate of India vote for BJP to introduce “yoga” and banning beef?

    • Mr. A.S. Mathew,

      Let me be frank. I am not an expert on cattles or matters relating to zoology. All said and done, however hard India may try, it will never be able to surpass Brazil as a beef exporter, though India has in excess of 300 million heads of cattle vis-a-vis 200 plus million heads of cattle in case of Brazil. Brazilian beef industry is well organized and run on scientific lines. The cattle is well fed and nourished on verdant pastures and are slaughtered in modern plants.

      In India, all cattles are not fortunate to graze in verdant pastures and have hay. They eat whatever they get and are slaughtered by a butcher in unhygienic surroundings in the most primitive and amateurish way that one can imagine. Indian beef lacks taste, compared to beef from advanced countries, including countries like Australia and New Zealand.

      • http://time.com/3833931/india-beef-exports-rise-ban-buffalo-meat/

        A country where cows are sacred is exporting a record amount of red meat.

        India has been the largest exporter of beef in the world since last year, and has further widened its lead over second-ranked Brazil with a projected total of 2.4 million tons exported in 2015 against Brazil’s 2 million.

        The USDA report, released earlier this month, predicts that global beef exports overall will rise to a record 10.2 million tons, 3% higher than the October 2014 forecast.

        • PRAVEEN QUOTES FROM http://time.com/3833931/india-beef-exports-rise-ban-buffalo-meat/ AND PROVES THAT “India has been the largest exporter of beef in the world since last year, and has further widened its lead over second-ranked Brazil with a projected total of 2.4 million tons exported in 2015 against Brazil’s 2 million.”

          INDIA HAS ACHIEVED THIS INCREDIBLE FEAT BY:
          1. CONTINUING KILLING COWS FOR BEEF
          2. INCREASING COW SLAUGHTER IN INDIA
          AND
          3. BY STOPPING INDIAN MUSLIMS AND CHRISTIANS EATING BEEF!

          BY “DEMOCRATICALLY” IMPOSING HINDU CULTURE ON THEM AS THE RSS WOULD PUT IT!

          THEREFORE, ACCORDING TO RSS; EATING BEEF IN INDIA IS UN-INDIAN; BUT KILLING THE COWS AND INCREASING EXPORTS UNDER THE PRESENT MODI REGIMEN IS PERFECTLY IN ORDER!

  5. Dear readers,

    As long as cow remains polarising factor for majority vote bank in favor of RSS political wing BJP,it will be revered as ‘Mata’ infront of Indian citizens.The $5 billion ‘Pink revolution’ of exports will continue fetching Modi’s coffers the crucial foreign exchange it will be continued to be sacrificed to serve the delicacy of foreigners as well as Indians abroad.

    During “Gaurav Yatra” Modi addressed public rally saying “What brothers, should we run relief camps? Should I start children-producing centres? We want to achieve progress by pursuing the policy of family planning. We are five, they have 25! Can’t Gujarat implement family planning?

    They had invested hope in the village pradhan. He had said he’d protect them. Instead, what happened at his house during the morning of the riots will make you shudder. Outlook meets Muslim women at the camps, the faceless Nirbhayas of Muzaffarnagar..

    How worth is ‘selfie with daughter’ being projected,when Hindu mobs are openly charged to disrobe their honour?In India every 22 minute one women being raped.Is ‘Selfie’ is more priority than safety of ‘daughters’?

    Why the opposition Karnataka BJP does not demand arrest of cow loving swami even after DNA match from the forensic evidence. Why senior swamiji like Pejawar mum on rape and murders of women disciple?Why RSS leaned governor of Karnataka does not demand for stringent action against corrupt swamiji?

    Did Modi government need selfie with the accused to prove the case?

    Jai hind
