Citing security concerns the Cow vigilantes who are frequently hitting headlines since NDA government came in power have applied for Arms and Ammunition License in Haryana.
Dharmendra Yadav, head of the Gaurakshak in Haryana said, Cow smugglers are often armed, so it is really necessary for Gaurakshaks to carry weapons. They had applied a year ago but haven’t received it. They have written to the Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Khattar on this issue.
On the other hand Commissioner of Police, Gurgaon said that the license can’t be given to anyone, there are certain factors in this process and it can only be given when all parameters are met.
Gau-Rakshaks have been in news for quite some time for hitting, raping and even sometimes killing innocent people under the banner of protecting cows, so arms and ammunition license to them would mean more killings.
