Sene plea to pass legislation against cow slaughter

“We are not putting a deadline, but we are continuing our struggle. We urge the government to pass a legislation in the ongoing Assembly session itself,” said Sene State Convener Arun Puthila.Addressing a press meet here on Friday, he said banning cow slaughtering was the dream of Gandhiji, and hence the Congress party too should support the legislation.

He added that banning illegal transportation of cows and prohibiting cow slaughtering is necessary for harmony.

Muthalik in M’lore

Puthila said Sene would conduct its annual ‘abhyasa varga’ at Radhakrishna Mandira near Urwa Marigudi from 6 pm on August 1 to 6 pm on August 2. Sene chief Pramod Muthalik will take part in the event.

“Muthalik will be offered a grand welcome on his arrival to Mangalore on August 1. A rally will also be held to mark the occasion,” he informed. Muthalik has obtained a court stay against the district administration’s order banning his entry to DK.

Puthila also urged the government to allow Hindus to conduct pooja at Datta Peetha at least before the next Datta Jayanthi. He also urged that the Datta Paduke which is under the custody of the Chikmagalur district administration to be kept for the devotees’ darshan.

Sene office bearers Prasad Attavara, Kumar Malemar and Madhusudan were present at the press meet.

In Udupi

In a separate programme in Udupi, Sri Rama Sene demanded immediate implementation of the ban order on the cow slaughter in the State.

Forwarding the memorandum to Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa through in charge DC Prasanna Kumar, the Sene accused that the slaughtering of the cows hurts the religious sentiments of the Hindus and the State is dominated by the Hindus.

In the previous occasions, this has led to many unpleasant incidents in the State that ended in the communal riots. The only way out to get rid of the incidents damaging the normal peace process is to implement ban order on cow slaughter, the Sene added.

State Coordinator Arun Putthila, District Coordinator Rajesh Yermal, State Joint Coordinator Jeethesh Yermal and others were present on the occasion.
