Bystanders told media persons that the car was being driven at a very high speed. “The driver was going at a speed far above the permissible limit on that section of the highway. He must have been doing nearly 160 to 180 kms per hour when the accident occurred. It is a clear case of over-speeding, and reckless driving which caused the accident, resulting in the death of one girl and severally injuring her sister,” Hashim Khan, an eyewitness told an IndiaScoops.com stringer who visited the site of the accident about an hour after the accident.

According to reports, Kyle Ticlo, who was allegedly over speeding and driving the car at very high speed at the time of the accident, purportedly lost control of the vehicle and hit the two girls crossing the road.

Belagavi Police Commissioner DC Rajappa on Tuesday said 27-year-old Kyle Ticlo was arrested and released on bail.

However, locals allege that the police treated the serious accident with ‘kid gloves’ because Kyle called his MLA father who spoke to the Belagavi Police Commissioner on the phone, requesting his support.

Beef to be completely banned in Goa, rest of India by 2019, master action plan by RSS, VHP, Bajrang Dal and Durga Vahini in the making

BY JOSEPHINE DIAS | PANAJI | 4 JULY 2018: Several extreme rightist groups including the RSS, Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), Bajrang Dal (BD) and the Durga Vahini (DV), besides others, are preparing a master plan and national strategy to completely ban the transportation and sale of all forms of beef in Goa and other states of India where it is still available.

Senior VHP functionary Radha Krishna Manori has been very vocal in the past about the intention of the VHP to totally ban the transportation and sale of beef across the country using one method or the other, including the use of brute force, threats and physical attacks on transporters.

This strategy is being used on a test basis in the State of Goa,  where beef transporters have been harassed by VHP and Bajrang Dal members masquerading as animal activists. If successful it will be implemented nationwide. Congress legislator Aleixo Reginaldo Lourenco recently called a press conference to publicly highlight the daily harassment (Read Here) meted out to beef transporters and traders in Goa.

IndiaScoops.com has learnt, a national master plan is being prepared and an interstate core group consisting of senior members drawn from all the above right-wing groups is working on a mega strategy for “Beef Mukt Bharat“, say sources familiar with the happenings within these groups.

IndiaScoops.com has learnt that one of their many strategies is to use loopholes in transportation laws and RTO regulations covering transport of raw meat from one state to the other. Another method is to use Animal Protection laws and animal rights’ activists for the purpose claiming that the animals are subjected to great torture during transportation. Many RSS, VHP, Bajrang Dal and Durga Vahini members across India are registering their own new NGOs as Animal Rights or Prevention of Cruelty to Animals groups in each State to take on the beef transportation network. These organisations have planned to have at least 8-10 registered Protection of Cruelty to Animals NGOs in each State under their wing by 2019, solely dedicated to stop transportation of beef from  one place to the other.

These NGOs will also raise funds from the public by organising awareness camps, seminars, etc., under the guise of discussing  Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, to fund their anti-beef efforts.

Another strategy is to use health and hygiene laws at the slaughter houses to make it almost impossible for traders to slaughter bovines for food.

The overall idea of the RSS, VHP, BD and DV is to make cattle procurement and transportation so expensive and difficult, that beef will no longer enjoy the price advantage it does over poultry, pork, mutton or lamb meat and traders will totally give up dealing in beef and shift to other comparatively hassle-free businesses like poultry.

Besides, IndiaScoops.com has learnt the RSS and VHP plan to use “beef” as one of the election strategies for 2019, trying to brainwash Hindu masses into believing that all species of cattle or bovines are ultimately related biologically to the cow or gaumata due to interbreeding over the centuries and hence the slaughter of all bovine cattle must be banned. The NGOs above-mentioned will also be tasked with this job, sources told IndiaScoops.com.

As reported earlier, the VHP has claimed that it will impose a total ban on the transportation and consumption of beef in Goa by 2019, without the government’s help.

Senior VHP functionary Radha Krishna Manori, said his organisation will not hesitate to use maximum force to impose a beef ban in Goa with the help of the Bajrang Dal and Durga Vahini activists by 2019. “We will use all the physical force required, including the law to ensure  a total beef ban in Goa,” Manori was quoted saying to the media last year.

“Like elsewhere in the country, in Goa, too, we are awakening people against cow slaughter and eating beef. You will have to wait for another one year and our Bajrang Dal and Durga Vahini workers will stop cow slaughter in the state,” he told reporters in Vasco last year (2017). Manori was referring to the NGO groups being set up across Goa.

The VHP aided by the Durga Vahini and the Bajrang Dal has plans to completely disrupt the transportation of beef to Goa by 2019, by using Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act and other similar Animal Protection Acts, with the tacit support of the government machinery.

“The VHP will not require the help of any government to stop cow slaughter or beef eating, as our wings — Bajrang Dal and Durga Vahini — are capable enough to do it,” Manori told media persons in 2017.

“VHP is stopping cow slaughter through Bajrang Dal and Durga Vahini. We are not demanding anything from the government,” he added.

“VHP is strong enough to get done the things which it wants. Why won’t it (cow slaughter) stop? It has to stop,” he commented referring to the beef ban.

“We will do what Hindu society wants. We will not allow cow slaughter or allow anyone to eat beef in Goa,” he added.

In Goa, Congress legislator Aleixo Reginaldo Lourenco on Saturday demanded police protection for beef importers, who have once again complained that cow vigilantes were stopping consignments of slaughtered beef from being brought into the state from neighbouring Karnataka.

“Even legally those who are legally importing beef, they are being harassed by cow vigilante groups and the government is promoting them,” Reginaldo told a press conference here, amid a fresh spate of beef shortage in the state, where nearly one third of the 1.5 million population belong to beef-eating minority communities.

“All Hindus, Catholics, Muslims eat what they want. Why are such differences being created now? The beef shortage is being created by cow vigilante groups in Goa, who are backed by RSS elements,” the Congress leader said.

Anwar Bepari, president of the All Goa Qureshi Meat Traders association on Friday had said cow-vigilantes were forcefully stopping beef consignments from being brought in the coastal state, giving rise of shortage of the red meat in Goa’s markets.

“The cow protection groups are taking law in their hands and stopping our legally imported consignments. They have also beaten up some drivers, who are now scared to drive the trucks carrying slaughtered beef into Goa,” Bepari told IANS.

In January, beef traders in Goa went on strike alleging harassment by cow vigilante groups.

The strike was called off after an assurance from the Chief Minister, who directed the police to crackdown on ow vigilantes.

Goa on an average consumes around 20-25 tons of beef every day, according to Bepari.

According to a report in The Wire, in the last 8-10 months, “animal activists” with links to the AWBI have gone on overdrive in Goa, specifically targeting the beef trade, the import of which is almost entirely handled by the Quraishi community.

Tired of the persistent harassment from vigilantism – in one instance “activists” threw phenyl on the meat, destroying 2,500 kg in a go – beef traders went on strike in Goa on January 6 and resumed business only after assurances of police protection from the state government.

The four-day shutdown cost the traders nearly Rs 1.4 crore in losses, the Quraishi Meat Traders Association of Goa president Manna Bepari told The Wire.

Crushing the beef trade between Karnataka and Goa appears to rate high on the AWBI’s calendar of activities currently. A day after beef imports began to trickle in again, a dozen AWBI volunteers, registered as honorary animal welfare officers, were flown into Goa (from Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Kochi, Hyderabad, they said). At a press conference, they alleged that the state was turning into a “hotbed for operations of the cattle mafia, illegal animal trafficking and unauthorised slaughterhouses. Laws are flouted and public health is jeopardised. Millions in black money is generated in the process. This money goes to fund terrorist outfits. Goa is under threat of becoming another Kashmir.”

Though a third of its population and the tourism industry buy beef, Goa does not rear cattle for slaughter. It is entirely dependent on Karnataka for the daily 30,000 kg supply – 25,000 kg of which is brought across the border by road by the Quraishi association currently. Around 600 Muslim families living in Goa are dependent on the trade, says Bepari who wants the government to reopen the Goa Meat Complex to facilitate the trade, reports The Wire.

Vigilantism leads to severe Beef shortage in international tourism destination Goa: Traders claim they have all permits, but are still harassed

PANAJI: Markets across Goa have seen a beef shortage over the past few days with traders citing harassment by cow vigilantes. Traders alleged that recently, a vehicle carrying beef from Belagavi to Goa was forcibly stopped and damaged despite having all permissions, reports the Times of India.

“The vigilantes blocked the vehicle while it was headed for Goa and damaged it,” president All-Goa Qureshi Meat Traders Association, Manna Bepari, told TOI. “We called the police, who, on arriving, verified our documents and let us go.” He said that the state government should take strict action against such harassment.

“We possess all necessary permits, and despite that, our vehicle was stopped and attacked and the driver was threatened,” Bepari said. “We require protection because vigilantes are taking law into their own hands and creating obstacles in our trade. The drivers now fear for their lives,” says the TOI report.

In Goa, there has been no slaughter of bovines since October 2017, and the beef currently on sale in Goa is brought from Belagavi.

Traders said that this vigilantism has caused a beef shortage in Goa over the past five days. Goa usually consumes an average of 20-25 tonnes of beef per day, but owing to the suspension of slaughter, traders have been importing less than 10 tonnes a day. After the recent attack by cow vigilantes, Goa sees only 1-2 tonnes available in the markets.

Reacting to these incidents, an animal husbandry official said, “The traders must post slaughter details that indicates the source of the meat and whether or not it has been slaughtered in a legal slaughterhouse. While transporting the meat, they must abide by certain rules. The police will check these details on the way.”

According to an IndiaScoops.com survey, beef prices have gone up in various parts of Goa and in some parts of the coastal state, it has completely gone off the shelves. Traders claim there is a 70 per cent shortage of beef in the state currently and due to the heavy rains and vigilantism, transporters are unwilling to transport beef from neighboring places.

The Vishwa Hindu Parishad has claimed time and again that it is capable of imposing a total ban on consumption of beef in Goa in the next couple of years, without the government’s help. A senior VHP functionary Radha Krishna Manori, had claimed the organisation will impose the ban in the state with the help of the Bajrang Dal and the Durga Vahini activists, says an earlier report in The Indian Express.

“Like elsewhere in the country, in Goa, too, we are awakening people against the cow slaughter and eating beef. You will have to wait for another one or two years and our Bajrang Dal and Durga Vahini workers will stop cow slaughter in the state,” he told reporters in Vasco town.

Goa’s tryst with gau rakshak—cow-protection—groups began at least half a decade before they became active on the national landscape, claims a report in Caravan Magazine. With Christians comprising 25 percent of the state’s population and Muslims about eight percent, Goa’s food politics have provided adequate opportunity for saffron groups to test their mettle. For instance, at the sixth edition of the All India Hindu Convention that was held in the state in June 2017, the groups present passed resolutions seeking the establishment of a Hindu nation and a nationwide ban on cow slaughter. Sadhvi Saraswati, one of the speakers at the event, likened the consumption of beef to “eating one’s own mother,” and called for public hangings of those who eat beef.

In 1995, the state tightened the regulations on cattle slaughter through the Goa Animal Preservation Act. Under it, all bovine animals—which includes bulls, bullocks, male calves, male and female buffaloes and buffalo calves—could only be slaughtered if they were certified as unlikely to become economical for agricultural, breeding or milking purposes. The act stipulated that the slaughter of bovine animals could only be conducted at a place specified by the government, effectively banning all existing slaughterhouses in markets. The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Slaughter House) Rules, which the central government notified in 2001, imposed additional conditions on cow slaughter. These included a ban on slaughter of animals that were either pregnant; or less than three months old; or had an offspring that was less than three months old; or if the animal had not been certified as fit for slaughter by a veterinary doctor.

A former high-ranking official of the state’s animal husbandry department, who requested not to be identified, told Caravan Magazine that the complex charges around Rs 400 for a slaughter. He added that it imposes additional charges for carving and cold storage besides stringent ante and post-mortem checks for cysts, infections and diseases—all of which increased the number of rejected cattle as well as the costs for both meat traders and consumers.

According to the official, private slaughterhouses in the state and the ones in Karnataka did not impose these additional charges. Over the past decade, the animal welfare and cow protection groups have managed to get authorities to implement the laws and shut down all other illegal slaughter venues. The complex became, and continues to be, the sole legal and licensed slaughterhouse in the state.
