Karnataka high court issues notice to state govt on plea against anti-cow slaughter Bill

Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru

Bengaluru, Jan 13: After a petition was filed by a Bengaluru resident against the anti-cow slaughter Bill, the Karnataka high court (HC) on Tuesday issued notice to the state government asking it to file its objections in a PIL against the petition.

The notice was issued by the division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Shreeniwas Oka and Justice Sachin Shankar Magadum based on the petition filed by Mohammed Arif Jameel. In his petition, Jameel argued that the ordinance went against the fundamental rights of a citizen under Articles 14, 19 (1) (G) as well as Article 21 of the Constitution.

Advocate General Prabhuling Navadgi, who represented the state via video conference, sought time from the bench and assured the court that the government was in the process of forming the rules.

Backing his petition, Jameel also submitted the case of Shiek Zahid Mukthar vs State of Maharashtra where the Bombay High Court had held that depriving people of the right to choose food was unconstitutional.

Therefore, the Karnataka Prevention of Slaughter and Preservation of Cattle Ordinance, 2021, violated the fundamental rights of many citizens to consume food of their choice.

The next hearing of the case is on January 18.

    Very soon there won't be any cows in india. No, not because they got slaughtered but no farmer will keep cows with him. It can't be sold means there is no profit . So save picture of cow to show to your next generation

    Ban cow slaughter all over India, not just select states. Also need to ban all kinds of beef export. A couple of years down the lane, there will be a fight for survival between cows and humans as cattle population in India will exceed humans.

    Cow slaughter ban is a good move! There should be a blanket ban all over India on cow slaughter! We should respect the sentiments of our Hindu brothers and vise e versa.
    I strongly recommend cow slaughter ban in north East states and Goa, as beef is freely available in these states! Export of beef must be stopped keeping in mind the sentiments of our brothers.

    First export of beef needs to be stopped will result in saving 65% of cows and then work on total ban in the country. Everybody will be happy.... including cows... Once all this is accomplished.... think of ways to fight the menace... cows eating humans....
