Bangalore: A massive protest was organized by various political parties, several Dalit NGO's and Muslims at Chota Maidan in Shivajinagar here, demanding the state government to withdraw the Anti-Cattle Slaughter bill, which was passed in the Karnataka Assembly.
The protest meet organized with the support of more than 200 odd organizations, passed a resolution stating that the Black bill, which has been passed by the state government in the Assembly, should be withdrawn rather than be cleared from the council to form the law.
Charging the Bill as anti people and anti farmer, the resolution cited that the bill that is going to be presented by the state's BJP government in the legislative council will strengthen the communalism in the state. The ban on the slaughter of cow and milk producing cattle already exists in Karnataka. The new bill presented by the state government looks forward to ban the consumption of the meat of all the other cattle along with cow slaughter.
The implementation of such a law will create problems mainly to farmers along with the common people of the state. The bill states that the old and useless cattle should be handed over to the Gowshala's and they should in turn be paid for their maintenance. The bill further declared that anybody who would oppose the law and slaughter the cattle to eat their meat will be punished for three years of imprisonment. The resolution states that the bill was prepared with an aim to compel the poor farmers to commit suicide.
The resolution further cites that the bill that is passed in the assembly also states that the people possessing the meat will also be punished. In this sense, the bill reminds us of the dark era of emergency and the age of Hitler, as it is also banning food for human beings. Such draconian law couldn't be followed by the people of the state. The bill is an attack on the rights of the farmers, Shudra's and the minorities of the state. The state government should withdraw the bill as soon as possible, the resolution demanded.
