The increasing atrocities on cow protectors

The Dhyan Foundation has always strived to save every animal in need, as incidents of atrocities towards them are increasing day by day. But a more serious concern is the atrocities which animal saviours undergo.

An animal was shot at when he tried to stop a vehicle at a check post where there was no police. The vehicle was smuggling cattle. He lost his fingers. His crime was that he was trying to stop illegal trafficking of cattle. Though an FIR was filed at the Gurugram police station, nothing has been done so far. The suspects were Mewatis. Not a single person has been nabbed so far. This was in 2015.

The very next year, when a group of activists were video recording the illegal cattle trafficking at Erode in Tamil Nadu, a group of boys attacked them with weapons. The activists managed to escape and rushed to the office of the Superintendent of Police. A woman activist, Joshine Anthony, suffered a fracture in arm. A case was registered in Chithode police station in Erode district. (FIR no is 94/2016)

On August 6, 2016, a woman activist, Kavita was attacked by goons accompanying trucks that were transporting cattle near Navyuga toll at Neelamangala in Karnataka. Other activists were attacked, abused and intimidated. Their vehicle was blocked, sharp objects were hurled at them. The car windows were damaged and another woman activist suffered severe injuries. A case was registered in Bellur cross police station. (FIR number 75/2016).

These are just few examples.

There are thousands of illegal cattle trafficking vehicles moving on the highways and a standard routine is followed. A common man who is the citizen of India can report about it.

Unfortunately cow protectors are being attacked and harassed.

Four activists, including Joshine Anthony, were attacked in Bangalore this morning by five persons escorting two cattle trafficking vehicles. They broke the windshield of the activists’ car by hurling weapons on them.

The pictures here of the injured activists speak volumes about the seriousness of the situation.

As Yogi Ashwini says it is the dharma of every individual to protect the weak in his vicinity. The Dhyan Foundation is trying it’s best to contribute in rescuing cattle from being slaughtered.
