Cow Protection – In Hinduism, the cow is a sacred animal and so is protected in India
He wanted to kill the cow to make glue, but there were huge protests and objections (cow protection).
Hindus believe that the cow represents divine beneficence (the quality of doing or producing good). The cow is also closely associated with motherhood and the concept of Mother Earth.
Hindus therefore regard cows as sacred and seek to protect them.
Five products of the cow – milk, curd, butter, urine, and dung – are used in Hindu rites of healing, purification, and penance, again illustrating the degree of veneration shown to what others regard as the humble cow.
Killing a cow was made a capital offence in India in the middle of the 1st millennium CE as the cow came to symbolise a life of non-violent generosity.
