Why ban only slaughter of cows and bulls? HC asks Maha govt


Mumbai, Apr 6 (PTI): Asking the Maharashtra government why animals like goats do not figure in its ban on cattle slaughter, the Bombay High Court today mooted a licence policy by which import of meat of cows and bulls slaughtered outside the state can be permitted.

A division bench of Justices V M Kanade and A R Joshi was hearing a bunch of petitions challenging a provision under section 5 (d) of the recently amended Maharashtra Animal Preservation (Amendment) Act which bans possession and consumption of meat of animals like cows and bulls.

According to the petitions, the flesh of these animals, if slaughtered outside Maharashtra, should be allowed inside the state. "Why has the state banned only cows, bulls and bullocks? What about other animals like goat?" the bench asked.

To this, Advocate General Sunil Manohar said the government was considering it.

"This is just the start (banning of cows, bulls and bullocks). We may consider banning slaughter of other animals too. As of now the state felt it was necessary to protect cows, bulls and bullocks," he said.

The court also suggested that the government have a licence policy by which import of meat of cattle slaughtered outside the state can be permitted.

"Section 5 (d) of the Act which is under challenge does not prohibit slaughter of cattle outside the state. Why should a person be prevented to eat or possess beef that has been slaughtered outside? Indirectly you (government) are prohibiting slaughter of animals outside the state too," Justice Kanade said.

Senior counsel Aspi Chinoy, appearing for one of the petitioners, argued that section 5 (d) of the Act was arbitrary and against the fundamental right of a citizen and that if the object of the Act was to preserve cattle in Maharashtra, then import of meat should be allowed.

Advocate General Manohar, however, objected and said, "How can the state say slaughter of cattle in Maharashtra amounts to cruelty but one can slaughter outside the state? That would also amount to cruelty. The Act incidentally prohibits import also." The bench directed the government to file its affidavit in reply to the petitions and posted the hearing on April 20.

    If beef is imported from other countries or allowed to supply from other states what is the sanctity in banning.

    Why only animals....ban all insects ,rats ,field snails(nadte),red ants chutney which still is diet of some people even in tulunadu and other tribal areas...Meanwhile ban fishing....you dont watch fish how it reacts while catching...Which community is mainly employed in fish catching...
    Meanwhile ban all greens ...you chop it boil it live ...vegetables and tubers ...who said plant doesn't feel pain...No research can say plant feels less pain...or more...what we know is it has sense of pain and it reacts accordingly like any living creature...
    What will you eat mud,soil and water....

    My humble request to all chaddis and cheddiless people to do the comparative study on all holy scriptures on earth. don't get biased yourself. think as only human being without any pressure and at-most concentration. collect the the common similarities and then decide.

    now who oppose slaughtering cow/bulls please keep ur right hand above your heart,close eyes and think of god and say that you never had beef in lifetime??? for sure only 10% or even less people will be of those who never had beef.

    i can prove that all humans are beef eaters directly(flesh) and indirectly(Milk and milk products)

    expecting strong answers mostly from cheddis.

    Cow slaughter is banned in every state except in north east. In some states like karnataka, bengal etc aged cows are allowed to slaughter. But slaughter of buffallo is allowed in every state except few states like J & K, Haryana and now Maharashtra etc. India is exporting buffallo meat only. But the problem is throught the contry in illegal slaughter houses cows are killed instead of buffallow. Our aggricultural civilisation starts with the domestication of cows and they are the backbone of economy at that time. So in vedas cow has given highest place as it is the measure of wealth. Mugals and other rulers banned cow slaughter because it was the backbone of economy. Robert clave started slaughter houses with the intention of breaking the aggricultal depandence of the people in Bengal. At present the economic dependence on bovine animals has been changed and absolute ban is not necessary. On riligious ground existing laws banning only cow slaughter may continue. As per directive principles of constitution govt may ban slaughter of all type of milching bovine animals.

    Ravishankar,

    I dont agree with your explanation on why cow slaughter were banned in ancient times. I dont know from from were did you get that info.

    Next, in india they cant impose the ban on religious grounds ( because india is a secular country as stated in the constitution). But what they can do and have done is that they have banned the slaughter of cattle on cruelty basis. now since they have done that they need to extend towards all other living beings. There should not be and ifs and buts in this matter. Our good for nothing governments have made India laughing stock of the world. Does our governments( state and central) have nothing to worry about other than to dictate who eats what. They cant even guarantee safety to its citizen (women especially) and now how can they protect the cattle with limited resource they have. Now police will waste their time on solving the cattle slaughter cases. Our courts will be burdened with more cases. Then the people who want this cattle ban will complaint why murderers, rapist and others who do real crimes do the things they do, not knowing that they have already burdened our law enforcement with their stupid laws like ban on cow slaughter.

    Killing cows and bulls are holy.
    Eating cow meat is holy.
    Someone don't kill cow unholy.
    Someone don't eat cow meat unholy.
    It is God who told to kill cow and gave the method called halal. So God is great.
    God will punish if one not obey his commandment killing cow and cattle.

    This proves that we are in Kali Yuga.

    Good that even HC feels that there should be ban on all types of meat, but for now, this cow slaughter ban is very important! it is for sentimental reason... let it go through, and then if there is a request comes from any other groups, then govt and court can together sit and review goat ban as well!...
    BJP govt is not losing anything. FInalyy they are taking a bold step which I am sure, 60-70% people agree with!.. Minorities, liberals, seculars anyway HAVE NOT VOTED THEM TO POWER and NIETHER GOING TO VOTE IN FUTURE!

    opposition will anyway cry hoarse.. be it a serious issue, of black money, land ordinance , or cow slaughter or soem giriraj singh or mohan bhagwat statement! ..sabko apna apna kaam karne do!...

    we are a country where farmer and our old generation, even when there was partition, darkest days, draught, famine, never let his "animal/cattle" go hungry.. he loved and moved with them and saw it as its own extension in family!... "KATUKANIGE IVELLA ARTHA AGUVUDILLA"!! people eat to live, but they are just LIVE TO EAT! ignore them! when 100 of other things are available to eat even in animal kingdom, they will want Cow meat, because, it is religious symbol for HINDUS ...

    The electorate must take serious actions to have a cow in the homes of every politician played the role in enacting this law. The cow must be treated like their own mother, so be kept inside their beautiful homes-taken care with love-good food and daily cleaning etc. If these......politicians will not do that, they need to be treated for their bipolar disorder.

    Sir, ban on slaughtering of all the animals and make compulsory consumption of only vegetables. Problem might occur for the animals in the Zoo. They might have to change the diet or is this considered as cruelty to animals capturing and imprisoning them? Or ban the Zoo,see which is suitable.
    One of the lions (in one of the Gulf countries) was fed with peanuts as the visa of monkey. Maharashtra Government is doing a Maha job., All the best of luck.

    Even the animals are going to be in trouble under the BJP rule. How the grass is growing? It has life, so there will be a law for the animals
    "grass eating" is prohibited. Fish eating also must be legally prohibited, but only for the rich, imported fish-beef and everything else.

    PLANTS FEEL MORE PAIN THAN ANIMALS.

    A team at the university of Hannover in Germany examined these claims through the use of EEG and ECG records during slaughter. Several electrodes were surgically implanted at various points of the skull of all the animals used in the experiment and they were then allowed to recover for several weeks. Some of the animals were subsequently slaughtered the halal way by making a swift, deep incision with a sharp knife on the neck, cutting the jugular veins and carotid arteries of both sides together with the trachea and esophagus but leaving the spinal cord intact. The remainder were stunned before slaughter using a captive bolt pistol method as is customary in Western slaughterhouses. The EEG and ECG recordings allowed to monitor the condition of the brain and heart throughout.

    The Halal method

    With the halal method of slaughter, there was not change in the EEG graph for the first three seconds after the incision was made, indicating that the animal did not feel any pain from the cut itself. This is not surprising. Often, if we cut ourselves with a sharp implement, we do not notice until some time later. The following three seconds were characterised by a condition of deep sleep-like unconciousness brought about by the draining of large quantities of blood from the body.  Thereafter the EEG recorded a zero reading, indicating no pain at all, yet at that time the heart was still beating and the body convulsing vigorously as a reflex reaction of the spinal cord. It is this phase which is most unpleasant to onlookers who are falsely convinced that the animal suffers whilst its brain does actually no longer record any sensual messages.

    Dear Jossey Saldanha, Mumbai,

    We need young cows to slaughter and not old cows.

    Let them put all those old cows in the Shaakas.

    Red Heifer is better.

    Maharashtra Government should encourage animal husbandry so that it is beneficial to humans for milk and meat.
