    Seven year jail in MP for cow slaughter - Hindustan Times

    Looks like India's version of the blasphemy law - just not that harsh as a death penalty.

    backward a.s.s.


    supreme court needs to strike down these backward laws as " cruel and unusual punishment".

    Rob steal and ruin someone = less time served.

    Rape someone= maybe the same time served.

    as killing a freaking cow ...:rolleyes:

    Where does it say in core tenants of hinduism that beef cannot be eaten.

    in vedas even pandits used to eat beef. these people are turning hinduism into a monotheistic religion which it never was.

    Such law cannot be implemented in NE, W.B., Kerala, J&K where Minority number is high and even some Hindus do eat beef there.

    In States like M.P., Gujarat where minority population is less and More than 90% don't eats beef. It was possible. Indeed, Half of the population are vegetarian in these 2 states. Majority of people must have demanded, So the Law !!

    vedas strictly prohibit eating beef or any type of non-veg or even eggs...hinduism is mixture of many cultures and not at all same as vedic dharma anymore...vedic religion is monotheistic...

    Should one kill a domestic animal which has nurtured one's babies and tilled one's fields. If it is not mother than what is it? The races which kill cows and eat those up are manily non agricultural or having no stake in agriculture in terms of ownership of land and main vocation.

    Seven year jail in MP for cow slaughter



    President Pratibha Patil has granted her assent to the long-pending Madhya Pradesh Cow Progeny Slaughter Prevention (Amendment) Bill.

    Now, the accused in cow slaughter case would get maximum punishment of seven years in jail instead of three years and a minimum fine of Rs 5,000. The bill was passed in the state assembly in 2010.
    With the enforcement of the amended Act now the responsibility of proving the prosecution wrong would lie with the accused in case of cow slaughter.

    According to a government release, the amended Act provides that no person shall slaughter or cause to be slaughtered or offer slaughter any cow progeny by any means.

    Besides, no person including transporter shall transport or offer for transport or cause to be transported any cow progeny himself or by his agent, servant or by any other person acting on his behalf within the state or outside the state for the purpose of its slaughter.

    The amended Act also has provisions for specifying necessary actions for feeding and rearing the cow progeny. Another provision of this Act is that any police officer not below the rank of head constable or any person authorised in this behalf by competent authority shall have the power of entry, inspection, search and seizure and to present the case in the court.

    The state government had forwarded the amendment bill on September 3, 2010 to the union home ministry for Presidential assent.

    The assent was received on December 22, 2011. The amended Act was published in the extraordinary gazette of Madhya Pradesh on December 31, 2011.

    Now the state government would take action for enforcement of the amended Act through a notification, says the release.

    The minister for culture and public relations Laxmikant Sharma has hailed the Presidential assent to the amended bill saying under the leadership of chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan the state government was committed to enforcing the provisions of the the Act in letter and spirit.

    Cow slaughter is banned in India. Its a SC guideline of 2005. Punishment proposed by MP is harsh but maybe it is because simple current law is not deterring slaughter houses.

    The Court implemented the law.

    The MLAs enact such law.

    The law is an ass as it is said.

    Some rational thinking should be done so that while it can be a law, the punishment should not be way out!

    Even Delhi has got strict punishment for cow slaughter. That's why no beef was served during Commonwealth Games.

    Nowhere. It is an invention by some self styled wannabe Brahmins who have limited knowledge of the Vedas.

    It is not a question of minorities. It is a question of whether Hindus should accept this concept of vegetarianism or not eating beef when no such prohibition exists in the ancient religious texts.

    Now you are making things up. The Vedas are incomplete without the Upanishads. Chandogya Upanishad clearly encourages humans to eat and/or exploit all plants and animals and no exception has been made for cows.

    Assuming it is not relevant, then even Hinduism is irrelevant. Texts written 5000 years ago are the foundations of Hinduism.

    This ban on cow slaughter was done with the aim of being sensitive of Hindus. How is it being sensitive to Hindus when Hinduism does not prohibit cow slaughter? This baffles me.

    Does it say that all plants and animals are provided for humans by Lord Vishnu? Yes or No? Answer this first if you have actually read Chandogya Upanishad.

    P.S.: The process of animal sacrifice practised by Hindus is ahimsa because it strikes the medulla first and the head has to be severed in the first stroke so that the animal suffers pain for a fraction of a second. So your ahimsa logic is nullified already, but that is not the point.
