Minister Ramdas Athawale launches Muslim Gau Raksha Sangh, says it will bring communal harmony

Athawale stated that awareness needs to be raised against cow slaughter as it is illegal in the country.

Social Justice and Empowerment Minister Ramdas Athawale has termed the formation of Muslim Gau Raksha Sangh a revolutionary step that will bring Hindus and Muslims closer, as per reports.

While speaking at the launch of Muslim Gau Raksha Sangh today in New Delhi, Athawale said that cow protection needs to be adopted to bring about a change in the country. “If you want a change in the country, cow protection needs to be adopted. Awareness against cow slaughter needs to be created as it is banned by the law,” he said.

Irfan Sheikh, the founder of the Muslim Gau Raksha Sangh, credited Athawale for the idea of forming the group so that Muslims come forward for the protection of the cows. Athawale praised the Sangh and said that it was a significant step as the minority community had itself come forward to create awareness against cow slaughter.

Athawale condemned the incidents of violence in the name of cow protection and said that such incidents also happened when the BJP was not in power. “It’s not that incidents of lynching in the name of the cow are occurring in BJP rule. Such things happened in the past also when BJP was not in power. It cannot be accepted as there are other ways like seeking police help to stop cow slaughter,” he stressed.

Sheikh, who is also a journalist, told that they want to educate the children of Muslim community about cow protection. “Our main agenda is to educate children in the Muslim community for protection of the cow. We will hold workshops and lectures at schools for the purpose,” he said.

The Sangh will also confer “Gau Ratna Awards” to acknowledge the contribution of people in the field of cow protection.
