I would like to analyze the arguments made in for and against of Beef Ban debate, before presenting my views. It is better to think and analyze the points instead of aggressively debating over the issue
For the Motion- Arguments
6) If eating beef is hurting religious sentiments of Hindus then why also the government is not banning products which are made by the skin of cow ?
This argument is trying to expose the dual nature of government, alike the argument of beef export.Today most leather is made of cattle skin but many exceptions exist.Though, the argument is not so strong, because, skin of cow is used after the cow dies, and the cow is not killed for leather. But, if hindus really worship cow then, i guess, they would like to promote cremation for a dead cow following all the rituals, so that the soul of the holy cow rest in peace. Is it done ?
I have tried to present all the possible arguments above.
There must be some reasons. Our is a welfare state and we enact and implement policies for the welfare of the society. Scientifically, tobacco MAY cause cancer and lead to death. But, no one can say with certainty that every smoker will die out of cancer. Similarly, no one say with certainty that eating beef will be fatal. And if person X eats beef, it won't be a threat to the entire community. It's Mr X's personal choice.
And, if I may say so, it is absurd and cruel to say that - 'We consider cow as our mother because it gives us milk and many benefits' -- because, it shows that Hindus worship cows as because, it gives them benefit, or else they wouldn't have worshiped that domestic animal. It's just for the selfish motive.
