Cows should be given fundamental rights, tagged as national animal: Allahabad High Court

Prayagraj: The Allahabad High Court said on Wednesday that the cow should be declared as the national animal, as it is a ‘part and parcel’ of Indian culture.

Justice Shekhar Yadav made the observations while denying bail to a man accused of stealing and slaughtering a cow. He had been charged under the Prevention of Cow Slaughter Act.

The judge also said that protecting cows is not the task of one specific religion, according to Bar and Bench. “Cow is the culture of India and the work of saving the culture is of every citizen living in the country irrespective of religion,” he added.

It may be noted here that, the Uttar Pradesh government brought a legislation to prevent cow slaughter in the state. The ordinance provides a fine of up to Rs 5 lakh and imprisonment of a maximum of up to 10 years if caught in cow slaughter case.
