Calcutta High Court gets tough on Cow Slaughter

Stern observation raises hope to call heinous practice a halt

As part of a significant development, in an interim order, a Division Bench of Calcutta High Court has asked the state of West Bengal to execute provisions pertaining West Bengal Animal Slaughter (Control) Act , 1950, every time that any cow slaughter on Bakr-e-Id is brought to its notice. It has been learnt that the concerned authorities are all set to take cognizance of the Act and act in keeping with law, a Bench of Mr. Justice Harish Tandon and Mr. Justice Soumen Sen observed.

Taking heed a PIL last week on the issue of sacrificing cows and its progeny as a religious ritual on the occasion of Id, the court gave directions that if either petitioners or respondents had anything more to say it would have to be on sworn statement or affidavit. The matter will turn up for another hearing once the court reopens on October 31.

The petitioners ought to inform the court if they come across such incident and when they report it to the authorities who fail to take any action in the matter, the Division Bench inter alia observed in the seven page interim order. “It is inconceivable that the state after enacting West Bengal Animal Slaughter (Control) Act, 1950 should shirk its responsibility of due implementation thereof.”

The Division Bench overruled the objection of the state counsel on the ground if there is no absolute ban on slaughter of animals, such slaughter is restricted in West Bengal. Right to grant exemption under a provision of the 1950 Act has been declared by this court earlier to be not under religious compulsion, it was pointed out.

What makes the Bengal administration recoil at each time there is a need to call cow slaughter a halt? Experts cite two main factors behind this – political compulsion of the ruling clique entailing fear of losing minority votes and fear of Muslim backlash.

Will the government of “Poriborton” be able to win over all and make cow slaughter a thing of the past? It is to be seen.

Another outrage in Bengal - Hindu Monk of Ramakrishna Order stripped and beaten mercilessly for Ashram land.

A panic may strike now the common Hindu people for the ongoing incidents of South Bengal for the last two months when the CPI(M), the ruling party of the state tasted a bad defeat by losing the muslim support in this region through Panchayet election. When the wining force of All India Trinamul congress (AITMC known as TMC), is considering all the prime posts for the muslim minorities in every stage of Panchayet system, the losing CPIM has already adopted the way of direct torture against hindu people out of any situation for winning the heart of muslim people and to regain the muslim support by giving various packages to the muslim minority.
On June 12, 2008 one Muslim leader of CPI(M) Sk. Ismail initiated the attack upon Hindu pilgrims in Gangasagar with the help of some 3000 fanatical muslim mob. Now they have tried to capture the Gorerhat Ramakrishna Ashram Campus by attempting murder of Swami Punnyalokanandaji, the Adhyaksha (in-charge) of the religious unit at Gorerhat under Joyn…

Hindus in Panchla reel under terror

The whole of Panchla, at the moment, is staggering under a fear of death. The expression may appear to be impolite to many readers but the cruel truth can neither be avoided nor be concocted. The visit of a team of Hindu Samhati to the worst-hit areas today itself has brought such heartrending and horrific accounts out.  The earlier report was based on firsthand information while assaults on Hindus were in full swing but now the details reveal a greater horror. Contrary to beliefs that murderous assaults were limited to a handful of villages, it’s now evident that lots of areas populated by Hindus were attacked by the lethal mob simultaneously and they include the village of Biki Hakola including wards like Raypara, Kolepara, Pachhalpara, Choto Gabberia, Beltala, Daspara, Hazrapara and Gabberia Kacharigora. And all these encompass an area of 10 Everything happened as part of grievous and premeditated strategies and hence, the brutal mob was well prepared from the very beginning…
