Uttar Pradesh: Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat today stated that there should be a ban on cow slaughter in not just some parts of India but nationwide.

Speaking on the auspicious occasion of the birth anniversary of Lord Mahavir Jain, Bhagwat went on to say: “We have been striving to protect the cow. Sampoorna Bharatvarsh me gauvansh hatya band hoye hamari ichha hai (We wish the killing of cows and its progeny should be banned in the entire country).”

He further went on to say: “Wherever in the state governments we have dedicated swayamsevaks, those state governments have brought in laws. But our desire is the law should be for the entire country.”

Bhagwat said any violence in the name of cow slaughter defames the cause, but added that those making efforts to save the cows should continue to do so.
