Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), West Bengal Chief Dilip Ghosh said that cows in the country produce milk which has gold in it and also added that foreign breeds are not ‘our gaumata’ but ‘aunties.’
At a Gopa Ashtami programme in Burdwan on Monday, Ghosh said that the country’s own breed of cows has a special characteristic. There is gold mixed in its milk and that is why the colour of their milk is golden. “There is a ‘nari’ (blood vessel) that helps produce gold with the help of sunlight. So we have to keep those (local) cows. If we drink ‘desi’ cow milk, we will become healthy and can prevent diseases,” Ghosh said.
He said that the breeds of cows that are brought from abroad are not cows. They are a kind of ‘janwar’ (beast). These foreign breeds don’t sound like cows. Those are not our gaumata, but our aunties. It is not good for the country if we worship such aunties, said Ghosh.
The BJP leader asserted that the cow is “our mother” and threatened of action against those who “misbehave” with the animal.
“Cow is our mother. We stay alive by consuming cow milk. So, if anyone misbehaves with my mother, I will treat them the way they should be treated. On the holy soil of India, killing cows and consuming beef is a crime,” he said.
