Sanjay Sharma always contemplated that if there is one thing that can save the planet from disasters, it will be “Gau Raksha” (Cow Safety). Being a journalist for more than two and a half decade, he had a penchant for writing about Gau Mata.

According to him, the newspaper is a medium that reaches millions and hence it was important to illuminate people about the positives of Gau Mata. Thus, Sanjay Sharma launched Gau Bharat Bharti on June 18, 2015.

It is a registered and independent multilingual national weekly newspaper based on “Gau Mata”, which is the first of its kind published in Mumbai.

The cow is a science unto itself. Unless you view cow from a scientific perspective, the debates will keep on raging. With the same perspective, the team of Gau Bharat Bharti and patrons strive to bring awareness to people and preserve the culture of worshipping Gau Mata.

Not only this, from dairy products to fertilizers, everything can be obtained from the holy cow. Gau Bharat Bharati has slowly and steadily amassed acknowledgment and appreciation from people of Mumbai, parts of Maharashtra and Gujarat.

The team pledges to ensure that the various medicinal, herbal products of “Gau Mata” become accessible to all sections of the society at a moderate value.

Sanjay also hails Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath actions towards admitting cow as “Mata” (Mother) and sanctions against the illegal slaughterhouse for cows in UP.

Sanjay devours Gomutra (Cow urine) every day. He believes that the cow urine therapy can cure many chronic diseases. With the help of his weekly newspaper, he is aiming towards a blissful nation if everyone of us will continue to preserve our holy mother cow.

UP Madrasas Defy CM Yogi Adityanath’s Independence Day Orders to Sing National Anthem and Record Proof of Celebrations

The question is, why would BJP-led UP state government issue guidelines exclusively for madrasas to celebrate Independence Day?

  • BJP-led UP state government released celebration protocol for August 15
  • Madrasas across different cities of UP decided against singing the Indian national anthem as part of the celebrations
  • Indian Independence Day is celebrated annually on August 15

Uttar Pradesh, August 17, 2017: As India celebrated its 71st independence day, celebrations took place in all states of the country. However, some discrepancies were observed in various cities of Uttar Pradesh, where madrasas celebrated the day following ‘confusions’ created by Uttar Pradesh government’s recent orders on the celebration protocol in Islamic schools.

Madrasas are a specific type of religious school or college for the study of Islamic subjects, though it may not be the only subject studied there.

The UP government had issued a notification to all madrasas across the state ahead of the Independence Day, devising guidelines for the celebration of Independence Day. According to the government circular, flag hoisting and the recital of the national anthem must take place at 8 am on the Independence Day across all madrasas. In addition to this, they were also instructed to film the events organized to celebrate the day as proof.

Though many madrasas paid heed to the government orders, some maintained that they never received any official intimation of the celebrations.

According to Maulana Khalid Rasheed Firangimahli, head of Darul Uloom Firangimahal, an “unnecessary hype” had been created in the context of the government order as Independence Day has always been celebrated across all madrasas with zeal and enthusiasm.

Sharing similar views, Ashraf Usmani, spokesperson of the Darul Uloom Deobandh insisted that the protocol of the celebrations had been the same in the past too. He also added that none of the madrasas in his knowledge had received any such circular.

According to Usmani, there was no need to give an “evidence” of the celebrations. “This is the function of our freedom, why will we not celebrate it” he added, mentioned PTI report.

Asserting the same opinion, Firangimahli, who is also a member of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board, also believes that the BJP-led state government should not have issued the order specifically addressing the madrasas but instead released it for all schools, colleges, and universities.

The Yogi Adityanath-led state government’s orders had created ripples immediately following its release and there were reports of clerics divided upon it.

Following this, about 150 madrasas connected with the Barelvi sect had decided to defy the orders of the government. It was decided in a meeting held on August 14 that celebrations were to take place with gusto, and the events of the day would include unfurling the Indian tricolor and distributing sweets to pay tribute to the freedom fighters. However, according to a PTI report, Maulana Shahabuddin Rizvi, national general secretary of All India Jamat Raza Mustafa had said that “No action will be performed which goes against the Shariat like the singing of the national anthem and videography.”

According to them, the word ‘adhinayak’ in the Indian national anthem was originally written in praise of the British in 1911, which is against the shariat.

Prohibitory orders were immediately promulgated in Bareilly district on the night of August 14 after a few Muslim organizations decided to defy government orders.

As per reports, on August 15, in Kanpur, Meerut and Bareilly, three of the biggest madrassas of the state, a majority of the madrasas celebrated the Indian Independence Day by unfurling the national flag, however decided against signing the national anthem. The students are believed to have sung Sare Jahan Se Achha, a 20th century patriotic song and not record the proceedings of the event.

Minority Welfare Officer of Bareilly, Jagmohan Singh was later quoted by PTI reports, saying that a formal report on the recitation of the national anthem and the videography of events undertaken to mark the Independence Day was being sent to the government for scrutiny.

Minister Radha Mohan Singh in reply said under the “Rashtriya gomang Utpadak Mission”, a centre was being established in Karnal, Haryana.

She also asked if the government has any plans of using cow dung for increasing humus content of soil.

Singh said the government is concerned about the environment, but added that the main question was focused on quality of milk products of DMS.

This prompted Speaker Sumitra Mahajan to say on a lighter note that it was the minister’s skill that he could answer unrelated questions.

Mahajan however added that MPs are not reading the question.

“I am sad that MPs are not reading the questions, even those who ask the question do not read it,” she said. (IANS)

  • Government imposes ban of the sale of cattle
  • Sale of cows is surging in virtual market
  • The law is expected to leave many low-class group jobless, critics says

June 02, 2017: As the government’s restrictions on the sale of cattle advances, farmers and livestock traders have become more equipped digitization buttressing the long term of Modi’s Digital India. A rapid search on online marketplaces, such as OLX, shows that hundreds of cows are up for sale in the virtual world.

Last week, The environment ministry announced animal markets could only trade cattle for agricultural purposes, such as ploughing and dairy production. The law is introduced against animal cruelty, but critics say they are aimed at pacifying hard-line Hindu supporters of the Modi government. The Madurai bench of the Madras High Court on Tuesday suspended the order for four weeks.

NewsGram brings to you latest new stories in India.

The Madurai bench of the Madras High Court on Tuesday suspended the order for four weeks.

Ravi Sharma, the resident of Varanasi was suspicious when asked about his online post, selling a desi brown cow for Rs 75,000. He then stated he has no interest in selling to a certain minority group.

In Ghazipur, close to Varanasi, Bheem Singh wants to get rid of three cows at the earliest, thus selling at 50 percent less than the market price. “It’s too dangerous keeping cows anymore. Anyone can come and beat us,” he said.

The past two years witnessed a rise in attacks on Muslims and lower caste Hindus involved in the cattle trade, leading to several deaths.

On May 26, a group of “cow protectors” thrashed two meat traders on the suspicion that they were carrying beef. Police in Rajasthan’s Bhilwara arrested five people, including an alleged member of the RSS who torched a truck last week, which they thought was carrying cows for slaughter.

Several state governments have appealed to the PM to revoke the order, which they say was issued without discussing them. While some have decided to drag the matter to the court.

Environment Minister, Harsh Vardhan,  said cattle bought and sold directly from farms would not be affected by the government’s order. “The aim of the rules is only to regulate the animal market and sale of cattle in them and ensure (the) welfare of cattle” in the markets,” he said.

However, many critics see the move as a blow to beef and leather exports that will leave thousands of people jobless and deprive millions of Christians, Muslims and poor Hindus of a cheap source of protein.

Cows have been sold on e-commerce websites earlier also but were only available occasionally under the pets section. However, ever since the BJP swept to power in Uttar Pradesh in March with priest-turned-politician Yogi Adityanath becoming the chief minister, there has been a swift surge and the rise of the gau rakshaks, or cow vigilantes.

Critics say a sense of fear has been instilled in farmers and cattle owners who feel safer trading within the restraints of the internet rather than an open market.
