Cattle slaughter: 'It's fool-proof prohibition, free hand to cow vigilantes'


.........Centre's rule on cattle slaughter under the 'Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Regulation of Livestock Markets) Rules, 2017' just two days before Ramzan is being seen an indirect attempt to ban slaughter of not just cow but all kinds of cattle in the country. The rules which were passed on May 23 is in direct contradiction with the law in Telangana - 'The AP Prohibition of cow slaughter and animal preservation act' - which allows slaughter of cattle, including cow and buffallo if the animal is found to be unfit for breeding, agricultural purpose or providing milk. Faheem Qureshi, president of the All India Jamiatul Quresh Action Committee in Hyderabad, says, "The new rules by central government essentially gives authority to veterinary doctor to detain a cattle ifit is found to be unfit. This particular section ends any probability of slaughtering a cattle in Telangana. While the state law prohibits slaughtering if the animal is fit and if it is unfit then the central law says it should be detained. Not just this but if the cattle is unfit then after detaining and provision of treatment to it, the cost will be incurred from the owner, who most probably will be a poor farmer."The new central rule bans sale of cattle for the purpose of slaughter in cattle market and has made several provisions to ensure it like giving in written declaration "stating that the cattle has not been brought to market for sale for slaughter". While government officials like District Panchayat Officers and veterinary doctors in Telangana when spoken to, claim that sale of cattle for purpose of slaughter is not allowed in the state, those in the business of slaughtering differ.
