Stop West Bengal Officials from Promoting Cow Slaughter, Violating Supreme Court Judgement, Suppressing Durga Puja Festival

    2. Petition by

      Anita Roy

      West Bengal, India

This is an urgent petition, requesting the Government of West Bengal (Paschim Banga), India  to Ensure 100% Enforcement of Anti-Cow Slaughter Judgements of the Honourable Kolkata HC and Supreme Court of India in Each and Every district (including Kolkata and Howrah City).


We urge the Honourable Chief Minister Ms. Mamata Banerjee to take strong action against the errant Officers-in-Charge of all Police Stations, in ALL Districts (including Kolkata and Howrah City), who are Promoting Cow Slaughter (to pander to extremist Jihadi elements) and are thereby openly violating the Honorable Kolkata High Court's Judgement (dated 2 Nov 2011 and 13 Oct 2011) and Honourable Indian Supreme Court's Judgement.


We urge the Honourable Chief Secretary and Honourable Home Secretary to investigate the atrocities being committed by the aforementioned police officers and their fanatic Jihadi bribemasters on those millions of Bengali villagers who refuse to kowtow to their dictatorial, unlawful demands that they support and make arrangements for slaughtering of cows on Bakr Eid (which falls on October 15 and 16, 2013 – during Durga Puja festival's immersion dates).


We also urge the West Bengal Administration to stop the official repression of the state’s ancient and vibrant Durga Puja by revoking the ban on the Divine Mother’s immersion on October 15 and 16, 2013.


We would like to respectfully remind the administration that banning the centuries’ old indigenous Bengali tradition of Durga Puja immersion (in order to appease a violent, alien, Arabian creed of Bakr Eid) is tantamount to turning Bengal (or what is left of it) into another East Pakistan.

      Thanks to your 1500+ signatures received prior to November 7, 2011, the Howrah police was compelled to act against animal rights violations. In atleast 3 locations in Howrah, eye-witnesses report that the police prevented the slaughtering of cows. In many other locations of West Bengal state (where Howrah is located), the local citizenry and animal rights activists, who were emboldened by your support, stopped this carnage. The media reported that 9000 cows have been rescued from illegal slaughter houses in West Bengal in 2011. But this battle has only just begun. The errant Howrah police officer has NOT been fired. So, going forward, we will keep this petition open to get more signatures to prevent this recurrence of this widespread cow-slaughter and to stop this animal cruelty in 2012. Here is a video showing vigilant animal rights activists in action in Kolkata city (the capital of West Bengal state), which is close to Howrah:

      ''Stop West Bengal Officials from Promoting Cow Slaughter''

      Cow slaughter is NOT a original Muslim religious practice. In fact, the Arabian Peninsula hardly has any cows. So, slaughtering cows is NOT a religious obligation in Islam. The only reason Muslims slaughter cows in the Indian subcontinent, is because it creates psychological domination over the Hindus. Islam is a hunter grabber ideology and cow slaughter has a important social message. It essentially tells a Hindu villager that he is powerless to protect anyone, whether it's the cow or his mother or his sister.

      I request the Government of West Bengal to investigate this issue thoroughly and take stringent action against such errant public servants, who break the very law they are supposed to enforce. The apathy and indifference of the officials makes me/many wonder if West Bengal is a part of India (where Indian law is upheld) or a part of East Pakistan (where Shariah is upheld). What is the deal with those people and the fascination with cutting the head off on animals or humans? This is sickening! I know cows have to go one way or the other for this world to enjoy some good rib eye steak, but damn, why this way? It's uncalled for and just nasty and sickening. Sick low IQ these people.

      Almost all of the cow slaughter in West Bengal and Bangladesh is inflicted on stolen cows from West Bengal. These cows form the livelihood of poor rural Hindus and are often quite economically productive.

      PLEASE: Stop this barbaric slaughter. This is an urgent petition, requesting the Government of West Bengal (Paschim Banga), India, to take strong action NOW.
