Cow to be declared a National Animal and its killers will be sentenced to Life Imprisonment, suggests Rajasthan High Court

Jaipur, May 31, 2017: The Rajasthan High Court on Wednesday suggested that the cow should be declared a national animal and its killers be sentenced to life imprisonment.

“Keeping in mind Articles 48 and 51A (g) of the Constitution and to provide legal entity for their proper protection and conservation of cow, it is expected from the government that cow is declared a national animal,” Justice Mahesh Chandra Sharma said in a 145-page order.

Describing himself as a “Shiv bkaht”, the judge, on the eve of his retirement, gave a ruling relating to the Hingonia Gaushala of Jaipur.

According to NGOs, over 500 cows had died at the Hingonia Bovine Animal Rehabilitation Centre in a span of 1-2 months in 2016 due to improper care.

The court said India was a predominantly agriculture-based country where animal husbandry played an important role.

“It should also be kept in mind that that Hindus have got great faith in cows and Nepal, which is a Hindu nation, has declared cow a national animal,” he said.

The judge appointed the Chief Secretary and the Advocate General of Rajasthan as persons in loco parentis (custodians) for the protection and conservation of cows.

These officials will work for the protection and conservation of cows and to declare cow a national animal, the ruling said.
