Prime Minister Narendra Modi condemned violence in the name of cow protection in a series of tweets yesterday. He also addressed political parties and state governments to ensure that such instances are dealt with strict actions.

“Some anti-social elements have used ‘Gau Raksha’ as a medium to spread chaos. People who want to spoil the harmony of the state also resort to such acts.”


“The responsibility of maintaining law and order lies with the state governments and it is their duty to strictly deal with such events.”


“People’s sentiments are attached with cows because they are considers our mothers. However, law exist against cow vigilantism and breaking them is not an option.”


“The country’s image is also spoilt because of such acts. State governments should take stringent actions against these anti-social elements.”


State governments also need to make sure that some people, in the name of cow protection, are not taking out their personal grudges or revenge.”


“All political parties should condemn the violence spread in the name of cow protection.”


Beginning with Dadri in 2015, several instances of mob violence have taken place in recent months. The perpetrators of these actions were cow vigilantes (gau rakshaks), acting against cow slaughter and beef. These mobs managed to create an atmosphere of fear and lawlessness whilst killing several citizens.

These incidents took place across India, including Assam, Rajasthan, Jharkhand, Odisha, Kashmir, Bihar, and Delhi

Protection of cows and cow vigilantism are tools that are been used to aggrandise political and religious enforcement. There have been several instances of cow-related violence in recent months. The increasing frequency of lynchings led to public outcry and people demanded that the PM addresses the issue firmly.

The Logical Indian community thanks the Prime Minister for speaking up against cow vigilantism and violence. We hope that the words are turned to action and each of the lynchings is probed and justice is dispensed. Furthermore, it is imperative that no more lynchings take place. For this, the government needs to take a multi-pronged approach, from police reforms and police sensitisation to stricter legislations and ensuring law and order.
