Let’s start today’s GD topic: beef ban – Right or wrong?
In Favor of cattle slaughter ban:-
- We should take a step to stop the animal violence. Cattle is an animal having a religious sentiment in many parts of India cattle is worshiped as good, slaughtering cattle may do sentimental damage to a big community of India.
- Article 48 of the Indian constitution mentions that the state should take steps in prohibiting the slaughter of cattle.
- Many slaughterhouses are not following the rules to not harass the animals while killing. Animals are subjected to intense suffering at most of the slaughterhouses.
- Most of the slaughterhouse is illegal and doing animal smuggling to the neighbor countries like Bangladesh and Pakistan. Cattle ban can reduce this illegal smuggling of animals.
- The cow is a sacred animal for Hindus. Killing cows hurts their sentiments.
Against to cattle slaughter ban:-
- In most of the part in India, many peoples are dying of hunger. Hunger and malnutrition are biggest problems India is facing right now. Beef is a cheap protein available to poor people.
- 70% of the cattle in India is owned by marginal farmers. They cannot afford to maintain their cattle after the cattle stop providing benefits to farmers, like providing milk, dung etc. The only way for farmers is to sell these old animals to slaughterhouses.
- Many farmers are not able to maintain their cattle after a certain time here farmers left their cattle. These old cattle make various problems in cities like traffic jam sometimes cattle got accident which not only kills them but also makes a property damage to common peoples.
- Over 22 million jobs are dependent on slaughterhouses. Cattle slaughter ban will cause of loss of their livelihoods.
- It is not ethical to interfere with the food habits of others. Why only cattle? Why not a ban on chicken, goat meat a fish meat?
Taking action against illegal slaughterhouses is a right step, but banning entire cattle slaughter may not be a right decision by the central government. Everyone has a different chose of food and if it is not damaging someone else then the government should not interfere in personal life. In other hands, illegal cattle slaughterhouses owners should be punished.
