Dead cows row in Malegaon sparks ruckus in Maha Assembly

Mumbai: Few days after State Minority Commission Chairman Naseem Siddiquee dismissed opposition charges of conspiracy in recovery of the cow carcasses in Malegaon, it was the turn of the Maharashtra government to do the same.


"There was no communal angle. The cows died due to suffocation," PTI quoted Home Minister R R Patil as stating in the Legislative Council in Mumbai.


He was replying to a discussion on the issue raised by Leader of Opposition Pandurang Pundkar and others under Rule 97 of the House (related to shot discussion).


Two persons, both from Madhya Pradesh, were arrested in this connection. They are the driver and owner of the truck in which the carcasses were brought, he said.


Political parties should not use such issues to inflame public sentiments, the Minister said.

Pundkar, a BJP leader, said the government should have a stringent mechanism in place to deal with such cases.


Eight dead cows were found along the Malegaon-Manmad highway few kilometres to the actual town dominated by the Muslims on July 21 early in the morning. After the incident, people owing allegiance to Sangh Parivar stormed the western part of Malegaon for consecutive two-days.


Cases of stone-pelting, looting and burning of properties owned by Muslims were reported in the area. Private and state-owned vehicles were damaged in the stone pelting, that also injured few people including a senior reporter associated with a Marathi daily.


Unruly scenes were also witnessed in the Maharashtra Assembly where BJP and Shiv Sena leaders created ruckus in the house forcing adjournments. They were carrying provocative placards and banners. Leader of Opposition Eknath Khadse described the incident as "inhuman and deliberately done on the auspicious occasion of Ashadhi Ekadashi on Wednesday."


Earlier, Minority Commission Chairman Naseem Siddiquee after visiting Malegaon on July 24 and going through all the facts had dismissed the opposition charges.


"Post-mortems conducted on the dead cows does not show any wound or injury. The cows died due to suffocation that could have probably occurred due to over-loading. Further investigations are on and guilty would be booked", he said.
