ALL INDIA IMAM ORGANISATION CHIEF UMER AHMED IIYASI IS IN FAVOUR OF BAN ON COW SLAUGHTERING :

 :

Demanding a nationwide ban on cow slaughter, chief imam of the All India Imam Organisation Umer Ahmed Ilyasi said that cow should be declared as a “national animal”. He also said that religious sentiments of a group towards cow should be respected. “Beef is openly consumed in Kerala, Goa and northeastern states, whereas there is a ban on it in some states. We want that there should be a uniform law in the country that will ban the slaughter of cows. Besides that, cow should be declared as a national animal,” Ilyasi told reporters in Indore. “Cow is a matter of faith for a religious group and all other communities should respect it,” he added. He, however, condemned the recent mob fury and lynchings over the suspicion of carrying/consuming beef, and said that taking the law into one’s hands was not good.  Talking about Bihar Minority Welfare Minister Khurshid alias Feroz Ahmad chanting ‘Jai Sri Ram’ in the state assembly premises recently, Ilyasi said, “Chanting or not chanting ‘Jai Sri Ram’ is a matter of personal faith. But I believe that ‘Bharat mata ki jai’ or ‘Jai Sri Ram’ chants are acclamation of their victories,” Ilaysi said. “I don’t find anything wrong in someone’s glorification. We should come out of such petty mindset,” he added.  Rediff.com headlines today : 6th. Aug,17
