New Delhi, India– BJP MP Maneka Gandhi has accused the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) of selling cows to butchers, calling them the “biggest cheat” in India. Gandhi made the allegations in a video that has since gone viral on social media.

According to Gandhi, ISKCON is selling all its cows to the butchers, and no one else does this as much as they do. She also claimed that there was not a single calf in the entire dairy, which means that all the cows were sold.

“ISKCON is the biggest cheater today in India. They establish Gaushalas for which they get donations from people, but they sell all their cows to the butchers,” Gandhi said in the video.

Gandhi’s allegations have sparked a controversy, with ISKCON denying the charges. In a statement, ISKCON said that it does not sell cows to butchers and that it takes care of its cows until the end of their natural lives.

“There is no truth to the allegations made by Maneka Gandhi. We take care of our cows until the end of their natural lives. We do not sell cows to butchers,” the statement read.

ISKCON also said that it has been running Gaushalas for over 50 years and that it has been recognized by the government for its work in cow protection.

“We have been running Gaushalas for over 50 years, and we have been recognized by the government for our work in cow protection. We take care of our cows with love and respect, and we do not engage in any illegal activities,” the statement added.

However, this is not the first time that ISKCON has been accused of selling cows to butchers. In 2015, the beef meat traders association accused Gandhi of making false statements about pregnant cows and milking cows getting killed. The association claimed that cow meat is brought to the shop for sale, and it is the responsibility of the government to ensure that the meat is not from illegal sources.

The controversy over Gandhi’s allegations has once again highlighted the issue of cow protection in India. Cows are considered sacred by Hindus, and the slaughter of cows is banned in many states in India. However, the ban has led to an increase in cow smuggling and illegal slaughterhouses.

In recent years, there have been several incidents of violence against people accused of cow slaughter or transporting cows for slaughter. The issue has also become politicized, with many politicians using it to gain votes.

In conclusion, the allegations made by Maneka Gandhi against ISKCON have sparked a controversy, with ISKCON denying the charges. The controversy has once again highlighted the issue of cow protection in India and the need for a more nuanced approach to the issue. It is important to ensure that cows are protected, but it is also important to ensure that the ban on cow slaughter does not lead to violence or discrimination against certain communities.
