It's Not Religious: Here's The Real Cause Of The Cow Protection Programme Of The RSS
Verghese Kurien revealed Golwalkar's real reason behind the cow protection movement:
The government set up a committee to consider the demand of a national ban on cow slaughter. The committee continued twelve years. For the reason that interval, Golwalkar became buddies with one of the committee members, Verghese Kurien, known as the 'Milkman of India.'
"It was important for us in the dairy farm business to keep weeding out the unhealthy cows to ensure available resources could be used for healthy and productive cattle.
Kurien revealed Golwalkar's real reason behind the cow protection movement:
One day after one of our assemblies when he'd argued for banning cow slaughter passionately, he came to me and asked, 'Kurien, shall I tell you I'm making an issue of the cow slaughter company?'
I said to him, 'Yes, please explain to me because you are an extremely intelligent man. Why are you doing this?'
'I started a petition to ban cow slaughter actually to obstruct the government,' he began explaining to me. In connection with this work, I traveled to see the way the effort was progressing. I was once taken by my journeys to a village. There I saw in one house, a girl, who having fed and sent off her husband to work and her two children to school, took this petition and went from house to house to collect signatures because blazing summer sun. I wondered to myself why this woman should take such pains. She had not been crazy to be doing this. This was when I recognized that the woman was doing it, and I recognized how much potential the cow has.
'Look at what our nation has become. What is not bad is foreign: what's not good is Indian. Who's a superb Indian? It is the fellow who puts on a hat and wears a tie and a suit. Who is a bad Indian? The fellow who wears a dhoti. How can it amount to anything, if this state does not take pride in what it is and only imitates other states? Then I saw that the cow has possible to unify the state -- she symbolizes the culture of Bharat.
'What I am attempting to tell you is that I am not a victim, I'm not a fanatic. I'm only cold-blooded about this. I want to use the cow, So please cooperate on this with me.'
We know that Golwalkar's idea of Indianness was Hindutva.
It is ironical that Golwalkar's idea of uniting Hindus is becoming a wedge between upper caste Hindus and Dalits in Gujarat. Kurien continues to be established right. Dalits who skin the dead animal are actually at the behest of Golwalkar's "cold-blooded" idea of uniting Hindus.
Golwalkar was a Brahmin, as were two of the accused in the Una incident. Other accused in include one Kshatriya and OBCs. Incidentally.
Golwalkar was a great effect on prime minister Narendra Modi.
