Cow is considered as Goddess by the people of Hindu religion and as Indians we worship cows. Such a worship-able cows are mercilessly sent to slaughter houses, when they are aged or while they attain the non-productive age. In the slaughter houses, the sacred cows are killed in a barbaric and cruel manner for their flesh, skin and bones. It is a great sin and against the basic tenets of the Vedas and sacred scripts on Hinduism.
In order to prevent this sinful act of killing the cows or sending the cows to slaughter houses, a few state governments in India have already enacted laws prohibiting it. But, unfortunately, the killing of the sacred cows is going on unabatedly in many parts of India without minding the sentiments of the Hindus and cruelty involved in it.
If you see cows on roads just inform or visit your local visit Goshala and inform them. This would cost u nothing but thousands of COW would be saved Per day.
