Supreme Court questions 6 states on 'Gau Rakshaks' : Band of Muslim cow protectors respond

Picture for representation
A band of Muslim 'gau rakshaks' have come forward and submitted a counter petition asking the Supreme Court not to ban 'gau rakshaks' in response to a petition filed by Tehseen Poonawalla in the Supreme Court asking for a complete ban on 'gau rakshaks' across the country.
The petitioners in the intervention petition are Faiz Khan from Raipur, Israr Ullah from Allahabad & Dr S N Pathan from Pune who have requested the Supreme Court that gau rakshaks should not be banned.
Through this petition advocate Shiraz Quraishi and his team have requested the apex court that there are abundant people across religions who are working within the framework of the law for the protection of cows and progeny.
"We condemn violence but we also condemn misrepresentation of facts. Anti-social elements are trying to defame the genuine cow protectors so that the protection of cows & progeny done lawfully can be disrupted. I represent Muslim gau rakshaks and am taking the legal route to fight my case," said Shiraz Quraishi, Supreme Court Lawyer.
The petition also makes a mention of Joshine Anthony, Kavita Jain and Jagpreet Luthra and several other women who are law abiding citizens protecting animals.
India Today had earlier brought to light an exclusive report on Jagpreet Luthra (senior journalist), Kavita Jain (entrepreneur), Nitasha Jaini (painter) and Joshine Anthony who are educated professionals protecting animals from being smuggled across India's state and national borders. While Nitasha Jaini was attacked outside the Patna High Court where she was fighting a legal battle against the meat mafia, Joshine and Kavita were attacked by a mob of over 50 goons from the meat mafia in Bengaluru.
"Just two months back over 20,000 kg of beef kept for export was seized from a cold storage in New Delhi (all samples tested positive for beef) and over four thousand tonnes of meat was caught at Chennai port. These were efforts of genuine law abiding gau rakshaks. Our efforts gravely hurt the meat mafia's pockets," said Joshine Anthony of the Dhyan Foundation.
Celebrity and former Miss India Nikita Anand voiced her concerns on the matter saying "Ram, Krishna, Rana Pratap, Shivaji were all gau rakshaks. It is a pious term and this is a planned attack to defame this term of 'gaurakshaks' by the meat mafia so that there is no hindrance in their trade. It is an illegal trade worth several hundreds of crores and the meat mafia doesn't bat an eyelid even before firing at police in order to flee".
In an India Today exclusive interview, DSP Virender Singh from Mewat said how police officials are not safe at the hands of cattle smugglers. "These Mewati cattle smugglers open fire and pelt stones on the police when we try to intercept their illegal trade" said Singh. Amit Kumar and Gaurav Kumar of Haryana are among those who have been attacked and shot at point blank range at the hands of Mewati's during one of their pursuits to mobilise authorities to intercept cattle filled trucks".
"The meat trade is a hazard to our national security. As per a report conducted by the National Investigation Agency, one of the biggest fund raisers for terrorist outfit Hizbul-mujahideen was a cattle smuggler from Bangladesh. Recently several thousand cartridges, carcasses of endangered and extinct animals and several hundred illegal firearms were recovered from an animal poacher's house in Meerut," Quraishi further elaborated.
This team of Muslim petitioners and advocates have come forward in support of Gaurakshaks and countered Tehseen Poonawalla's petition to ban gaurakshaks. The date of hearing is due tomorrow in the Supreme Court wherein both sides will battle for and against the term which has captivated the entire country - "Gauraksha".

Why is vedic civilisation the most advanced civilisation across time?

Vedic civilisation is perhaps the most advanced civilisation across times.
Vedic civilisation is perhaps the most advanced civilisation across times. The kind of knowledge and understanding of various aspects of creation that was possessed by the Vedic seers and is documented at length in ancient texts is unmatched till date. While the rest of the world was inhabited by barbarians as per modern historians, Vedic masters were dispelling the gyan of shanti (peace), preservation and protection of nature and its resources, compassion to animals and envisioning universes and galaxies far and beyond. One such phenomenal Vedic master was Sushruta who taught the world the art of surgery, long before the advent of modern medicine.
Around 600 BC in Kashi, known as Varanasi today, there lived an old man. No one knew of his past or birth or whereabouts, he just seemed to have come from nowhere. Rumours had it that he was the disciple of Dhanwantari, the physician of the gods and perhaps he descen…


Mata Parvati was the daughter of a great king. When she chose to marry Lord Shiva, her parents objected and ridiculed her decision. They asked her why she would want to stay at Mount Kailash where there is nothing but snow, instead of marrying a man owning a huge kingdom and a palace. To this, she replied that all of these are temporary.
When her parents didn’t believe her, she gave them a glimpse of their future. They were shocked to see that their lavish palace was nowhere to be seen, it didn’t exist. That is when they understood what their daughter was saying. That is when they got the gyan.

Everything that is a part of the physical world—the body, property, relatives, friends and riches—is unreal and will
leave us one day. It is only when you are able to access Shiva that this gyan flows and you get the darshan of what is real.
The path leading to Shiva, however, is not easy. Sadhaks, who choose to tread this path, need to possess traits like Shiva—tapasya, vairagya (deta…


The British punctured our roots, killed cows and poisoned our minds, and left behind generations of ‘brown Englishmen’, writes Yogi Ashwini Macaulay in his infamous ‘Minute’ in 1835 changed the course of how Bharat (or India as we call it now) would be perceived by its countrymen. He planned to uproot the Indian culture through English education. He advocated education for a selected class and wanted to create eminent clerks to serve the lower cadres in British administration, “Brown Englishmen”. The fact that most of us find it perfectly normal to address him, who ravaged our culture, as “Lord” Macaulay and find the idea of cow, which nourishes us, being our mother or goddess absurd, is a direct indicator of the fact that Macaulay succeeded in brainwashing us. A brainwash to the extent that no matter what we write here or whatever stats we share, the Brown Englishmen, even if they make it through the end of this article, would still not find anything wrong in killing cows or eating bee…
