Some people get an ric shock on hearing ‘Om’ & ‘cow’: PM Modi
MATHURA: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday escted the debate over cow prection by suggesting that those arrayed ag inst the cause had been reflevely opposing Indian culture as retrograde.
“In the life of rural India, animal husbandry is very valuable. Can a family in a village survive without it? But I don't know why some people get ric shock the moment they hear the word ‘Om’. They also get ric shock when they hear the word ‘cow’. They feel as if the country has been dragged back to the 16th or 17th century,” he said.
Modi, who was speaking at a function here to launch National Animal Disease Control Programme (NADCP), said environment and livestock had always been at the core of the country’s economic thought and philosophy, even as his remarks attracted criticism of Congress spokesperson Sh Mohammad and AIMIM’s Asaduddin Owaisi.
The Prime Minister’s clubbing the opposition to cow prection with those who frown on the use of ‘Om’, an integral part of Hindu culture, marks an important turn in the old po itical and ideological feud over “cow prection” that was re-ignited after BJP’s victory in 2014 with instances of “lynching” by alleged cow vigilantes.

Instead of any other functionary of the go nment or the making statement (s) , it is apt and appropriate that PM has with full clarity and unambiguity stated what ''Om '' and ''cow''s signifies and implies for most Indians. Indian culture is not for any region, but for the Universe and mankind ; it cannot be ''retrograde '' as some ignoramus might like or feign to believe. Murar Y , Mumbai.

Great vision and work PM sir.,I have been seeing a lot of reverred Cow's being sent out of their shelters by the owners who are only interested in their exploitation for personal gains. They do not care on what these cows eat, their health or hygiene. Almost always one can see such cows and Buffalo's at garbage dumps trying to satiate their hunger, also squatting on roads for lack of a better resting place. Humbly request you to ensure the well being, and a stop to this cruel practice.
