Muslim man announces a 2 day fast for Gau Raksha

A Muslim Man named Jabar Jat is making the news after he has announced his intention to sit on a fast for two days, as part of his efforts to promote cow protection or Gau Raksha.

Jabar who hails from Kudbay village in Kutch, Gujarat is an owner of 16 cows and 9 buffaloes. His fast would begin from 20th July.

Apparently Jabar decided to go on a fast to take up the issue of welfare for stray cows. He blamed the alleged “Gau Rakshaks” for indulging in hooliganism in the name of cow protection and urged them to accompany him in his fast. He also stated that the so called killings in the name of the cow, would never serve their true purpose.

He has written a letter to the District Collector to list out a variety of his bovine related demands. In the letter Jabar calls for a law which requires every farmer to keep at-least two bullocks and that the government provides them subsidy for the same.

He asked for grazing land to be demarcated in each taluka of Kutch. He demanded that the government take care of stray cows and bears 50% of the cost for each gaushala. He has also asked the government to buy cow dung and cow based fertilisers from the farmer to further help them increase their cow based income.

He has received support from the Salimkhan Pathan, the convener of Rashtriya Muslim Manch which is the Muslim wing of the RSS. He reportedly appreciated the efforts of Jabar and claimed that he would urge the State government for setting up an infrastructure for the welfare of cows.

Vallabh Kathiria the chairman of Gujarat State Gauseva Ayog and Gauchar Vikas Board also affirmed that the State government would make efforts to increase the economic viability of the cow, by creating a market for cow dung and cow urine which might stop the people who decide let their bovines loose in the city.
