Guwahati/IBNS: A self-claimed Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader of Assam and some Hindu activists of the state have opposed serving of beef to the animals of the state zoo and demanded to ban cow slaughtering across the state.
Satyaranjan Bora, who claims himself as a BJP leader and some workers of a Hindu organization have demanded the state government and the authorities of Assam state zoo to stop feeding beef to the animals of the zoo immediately.
“We call cows as Gau Mata and how can we allow killing of our Gau Mata. We demanded an alternative way, as to serve goat and pork to the animals instead of beef,” Satya Ranjan Bora said.
On Monday, some Hindu activists had staged a demonstration in front of the entrance of the state zoo and stopped vehicles carrying beef meant for the animals of the zoo.
They demanded that cow slaughtering as well as feeding of beef to the animals should be banned across the state and the state government should take appropriate action.
A protester said that feeding beef to the animals should be stopped.
The protesters also demanded the BJP-led Assam government to issue an order for banning cow slaughtering across the state and stop feeding beef to the animals of the state zoo immediately.
Meanwhile, Assam state BJP clarified that Satya Ranjan Bora is not a member of the party.
