Bangalore: The Federation of organisations working for cow protection on Tuesday said it will soon a file a writ petition in the Supreme Court seeking directions to the Union Government to enact a uniform law on prevention of cow slaughter.
"We will soon file a writ petition in Supreme Court seeking directions to the union government to enact a uniform national law on cow protection," National Convenor of the federation, Dayanand Swamy said during a convention here. Governor H R Bhardwaj was appealed to approve the Karnataka Prevention of Cow Slaughter Bill which was recently passed by the state Legislature.
A memorandum was submitted to Bhardwaj in this regard. "There is a misconception among the general public that we (Muslims) are against ban on cow slaughter. It is not so at all. The ban is already in force in Gulf countries since long," Anees-Ul-Haq, national convenor of Muslim Rashtriya Manch, said at the convention.
Swamy said the Federation proposed to constitute a 30,000 member force to prevent cow slaughter throughout the country. The Federation also held a rally in the city on cow protection.
