Go Samrakshana

Dear Members

As you might be knowing, cattle world over are ill treated and immense wrong 
is being done to them. This includes feeding them meat (which includes even 
beef), injecting them with harmones to yeild more milk (which could lead to 
cancer in cows) and inhuman treatment before their slaughter. Sadly, India, 
the land of Govinda, happens to be one of the places where this takes place 
on a large scale. 

It is time we, as considerate human beings, and as devoted Hindus, who revere 
Go Matha, speak in unison against these. In fact, we should consider it a 
duty that Sriman Narayana has given us, He being the primary protector of 
cow. 

In this regard, I would like to mention that H.H. The Sankaracharya of Kanchi 
Mutt has launched a movement against the ill-treatment of cows (Go 
Samrakshana Movement). Some months back, my friend and I created a web page 
documenting the horrific nature of the ill treatment, various illegal acts of 
the perpetrators of these acts and the virtues of vegetarianism. Also, this 
site has an online signature campaign page. However, most unfortunately, we 
have not received too much success in our endeavour. 

I would like to request the members of this list to please take interest in 
this campaign and visit the site http://cowprotection.netfirms.com and add 
your signature. Please take time to read thru the sections there. Also, 
please pass the message to your friends who might be interested.  

Again, the site address http://cowprotection.netfirms.com.
