Spread the love           Before the gaurakhshaks cruelly lynch or hang another human being, let’s ask them to pause and ponder. Pause to ask one question, “How do they and their pious Hindu brothers look after their gau mata for whom they kill without compunction?” And ponder over the state their revered ‘holy cow’ is in these days of ardent cow worshippers, asks […]
