The Border Security Force (BSF) guarding the border with Bangladesh have a new job, in addition to guarding our borders they also have orders to stop illegal smuggling of cattle to the neighboring country.
The biggest irony in the statement comes from the fact that India is the largest exporter of beef in the World. Also, maybe he doesnâ€™t know that thousands of cows die every year due feeding on garbage and poisonous polythene waste and also hundreds of cows are killed in road accidents every year. I guess that makes majority of the population a rapist!
We live in a Country where issues such as â€˜Rapeâ€™ and â€˜Women safetyâ€™ are a big challenge to the society. We also live in a country where some people every once in a while, make shocking statements which make no sense, on topics of National importance.
Two soldiers have been killed by a gang of Bangladeshi smugglers, while three dozen have been injured by the animals. Some BSF soldiers said that they could not understand why they were chasing cows. As Vivek Tyagi, a BSF commander at Ghojadanga check post said, â€œIt is a wild chase, but not of a kind a soldier appreciatesâ€.
While our soldiers are busy stopping the illegal smuggling of cattle, some people are busy making controversial statements on the issue.
