Aligarh: Haji Zameerullah Khan, the Samajwadi Party leader, has initiated a campaign to save cows from being slaughtered.
As a part of this campaign, Muslim clerics will visit mosques and raise their voices against cow slaughtering.
The MLA from Koil has incorporated Muslim clerics, leaders and imams to campaign for the cause.
“Hindus are our brothers and they worship cows, so we respect their sentiments,” Khan has been quoted by Navbharat Times as saying.
Pledging to save cows, Khan said he discussed with Quran experts and concluded that there is no compulsion to eat beef.
Aligarh's Muslims, under the supervision of Khan, had last month marched with placards condemning cow slaughter for Hindu-Muslim unity as Aligarh district sees rampant illegal slaughter of cows.
