Yoga guru and entrepreneur Ramdev said on Sunday that ‘gau rakshaks’ (cow protectors) are forced to come out on streets as police and civil administrations fail to deal strictly with the menace of cow smuggling.

He said that strict action should be taken against those involved in illegal cow slaughter and added that a few “gau rakshaks” go overboard, which malign the image of “90% genuine” people who work for cow protection.

“No one speaks about cow smugglers. Why are cow slaughterers given encouragement. It should never happen. We are not in favour of those having licence for cow slaughter house and those transporting animals,” he told reporters on the sidelines of an event in Jaipur.

Advocating a complete ban on cow slaughter in the country, he said that Centre should enact a law on the matter.

“Who else can be a bigger ‘rashtra bhakt’ and ‘gau bhakt’ than Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He should enact a law to ban cow slaughter in the country,” Ramdev said.

Replying to a question on the National Register of Citizens (NRC) in Assam, Ramdev said that nearly 3-4 crore people live illegally in the country which poses a huge threat to the country’s integrity, unity and sovereignty.

Be it a Bangladeshi, Pakistani or American, no one should be allowed to live illegally in the country, he added.
