The Holy Cow Story

The cow has attained a sacred status in Hinduism. It was sacrificed to the gods like other animals, and its meat was eaten. From the 4th century BCE, the cow was gradually incorporated into religious rituals and became sacred and an object of veneration. It represents Mother Earth because it is a source of goodness and its milk feeds all living things. Krishna, a central Hindu deity, is frequently depicted in stories about his life as a cowherd and as the child who protects cows.

Today, Hindus, who account for roughly 80% of the Indian population, rarely consume meat. Beef consumption is prohibited for religious reasons. Some Indian states have even incorporated this principle into their legal framework by enacting legislation prohibiting the slaughter and consumption of cows (but without going so far as to prosecute beef eaters).

These laws are condemned by secularists and adherents of other religions. They are viewed as an assault on fundamental human rights and a form of discrimination against other religious communities (particularly Muslims and Christians) that allow the consumption of beef.

To summarise, because cows help us in many ways, why not celebrate Valentine’s Day 2023 by hugging cows and spreading love and care.
