“Since BJP government came in power there has been increase in crime in the name of “Gau Raksha” against Muslims and Dalits, there has been series of deaths mostly Muslims as a result of these crimes and the number of attacks has increased by almost 97% since 2014.”
Crocodile Tears of PM Modi before elections on India becoming #1 in Beef Exports
- In the video we can clearly see Modi before being elected as India’s PM stating that India becoming #1 in beef exports is not a matter of pride rather it is a matter of shame.
- He goes on to play on Hindutva sentiments by stating “aapka kaleja ro raha hai ki nahin mujhe maloom nahi mera kaleja cheekh cheekh ke pukar raha hai“, meaning his heart pains at the thought of India becoming #1 in beef exports as according to Hindutva it is morally reprehensible to eat beef or to be involved in beef business.
- Point to be noted here is that India is leading exporter of Buffalo Beef (Cara Beef) not cow beef and cow beef was banned in most states even before BJP government came to power. So Modi’s heart is bleeding here not for cow beef but for buffalo (Cara) beef as this is the category under which India became #1 in exports, clearly the speech is from 2012.
- He goes on to exhort people not to remain silent and suffer the ignominy of India becoming the #1 beef exporter.
- He closes by making sarcastic comment on then PM by stating that we cant expect answers from those who don’t speak; Well the same applies to him now, we cant expect answers from one who doesn’t listen.
Beef Exports after BJP Government came in Power
Keeping in view what was mentioned by Modi before becoming the PM w.r.t India becoming #1 in (Buffalo) beef export it is but logical to expect that he & his government would have taken strict stand like banning beef export. Reality is that beef export business continues to thrive [please check the stats in table below] even under BJP rule thus exposing the real face and hypocrisy of hindutva brigade.
This single example is enough to totally erase any remaining credibility that BJP government has but when we have most of the media being on the payrolls of ruling party competing with each other in singing paeans of the government and indulging in pro-government propaganda day and night there is rarely anyone who asks such questions from the ruling party. If any reporter dares to ask such questions he is made an object of ridicule by BJP troll army on social media and sometimes even starts receiving threats from hindutva goons against him and his family.
4 out of Top 6 Beef Exporters of India are non-Muslims
In Northeast where most are used to eating beef the BJP government has a different moral standard and approach. So based upon political convenience they can compromise on this issue then what moral right they have to Target particular community over the same ?
It has been exposed how there is a criminal Nexus where he fake Gau rakshaks are earning money through blackmailing and threat …there are allegations of gaushalas eating up money meant for cows and the animals in very dire situation neglected and famished but owners of Gau shalas minting money in name of cow protection
Last year there was news about hindutva cow protection champion owning a beef exporting business. Such is the shameless brazenness of these people.
All in all it is amply clear that hindutvas fake concern for cow protection is meant for public consumption and religious polarization by playing to the sentiments of people. It is an attempt to further marginalized those small traders who were in beef business so that they can help the big beef exporters. It is alleged that BJP receives funds from some of the beef exporters, it it is true then this will take hypocrisy to next level.
If cow is really considered mata by hindutva then stop beef exports in India, close down all beef exporting businesses, stop using leather products stop having diplomatic relationship and doing business with countries who consume and import beef start really providing shelter and food for old cows who can no longer produce milk and then they can claim to have moral right to speak about cow protection…otherwise don’t expect anyone to take you seriously.
