New Delhi: A Karnataka Gau Raksha Dal has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday calling for strict punishment for those indulging in cow slaughter.
As per a CNN-News18 report, the Hindu national organisation demanded PM Modi to raise punishment for cow slaughter and also sought enactment of central anti-cow slaughter act.
The Gau Raksha Dal's decision to up the ante comes a day after PM Modi broke his silence on cow vigilantism and said he felt enraged at such 'anti-social elements' who indulged in crimes by the night and masqueraded as cow protectors by the day.
On Saturday, Modi asked state governments to prepare a dossier of people who are 'running shops' in the name of cow protection and put so-called 'gau rakshaks' on a tight leash.
Amid the continuing outrage over the brutal flogging of four Dalit men by cow brigade members in Gujarat, the Prime Minister also asserted that real cow protectors do not terrorise people.
"I feel infuriated at some people who have opened shops in the name of cow protection. I have seen that some people who commit anti-social activities through the night, don the mantle of cow protectors by the day.”
