West Bengal BJP chief Dilip Ghosh, knows for being boisterous, is again in news for his statements. And this time, his statements have crossed all borders of sensibility. At a program held in Burdwan district, Ghosh laid down his views on eating beef, and on Indian cows and foreign cows!
Talking about the pale yellow color of the cow milk, the BJP chief said-“A feature of the Indian cows is that its milk contains gold. That is the reason the color of the milk is yellowish. He justified his thoughts, further adding-“The Indian cows have humps, which the foreign cows don’t have. The foreign cow has a straight back, like a buffalo. The hump has an artery called ‘swarnanari’(gold artery). When sunlight falls on it, gold is made. So the mixture turns yellow or golden.”
He further gave his wisdom on the topic of ‘foreign cows’, saying, “The breeds of the cow that we bring from abroad are not cows. They are a kind of ‘janwar’ (beast). These foreign breeds don’t sound like cows. Those are not are ‘gaumata’ but are ‘aunties’.”
He also scattered his pearls of wisdom about the people who eat beef in India, “A few intellectuals eat beef on road. I tell them, why only cows, eat dog meat too, their health will be fine whichever animal they eat, but why on roads? Eat inside your home.” He also added, “The cow is our mother, we stay alive by consuming cow milk. So if anyone misbehaves with my mother, I will treat them the way they should be treated. On the holy soil of India, killing cows and consuming beef is a ‘maha apradh’ (grave crime).
Twitterati’s had a field day making memes and jokes out of Ghosh’s statement. Take a look.
