Shiv Sena MP wants cow to be declared as ‘Mother of the Nation’

Shiv Sena MP

A Shiv Sena member in the Lok Sabha on Tuesday demanded declaring cow as ‘Mother of the Nation’ saying the benefits one gets from its milk, urine and dung are ‘priceless’, a day after a BJP member made a strong plea to declare Bhagavad Gita as ‘national book’.

Raising the issue during Zero Hour, Chandrakant Khaire said cow should be declared as ‘Rashtra Mata’ for ‘priceless’ benefits it gives to humans in the form of milk, dung and urine which have a variety of uses.

On Monday, BJP’s Adityanath had said the teachings of the Gita have become all the more relevant at a time when the world is concerned over ‘jihadi’ terrorism. On Monday, Yahoo had named ‘cow’ as the ‘Personality of the Year’ 2015 in its ‘Year in Review’ for India.
