Mr, Kishen Singh said, “It is very sad that cow-slaughter is taking place in Bharat. It is necessary to be always alert and work for protection of cows.Presently, cows are being stolen from the region of West Bengal which is connected to Bhutan, Bangla Desh and Nepal; it has to be stopped.” Mr. Arvind Mishra, a businessman from Kolkata said, “Cows are stolen from various States and sent to slaughter-houses in different States in truck-loads. We need to remain vigilant and stop such trucks in West Bengal.” Mr. Mishra also made an appeal to observe a day’s ‘bandh’ for creating awareness amongst Hindus and for their unity.” His appeal was supported by staunch Hindu leader, Mr. Deendayal Gupta. Mr. Chittaranjan Sural of HJS said, “Many organisations are working against attacks like cow-slaughter, conversions, love jihad etc. If all these organisations come together, it will create awareness amongst Hindus and that will pressurise the Government.” More than 45 devout Hindus and gou-sevaks’ attended the conference.
