Satyahit das : By spreading the beef eater culture they divided and conqured India. The following are excerpts from Dr Sahadev dasa’s book, “The Noble Cow”., page 22 and 23. “When the British colonized India, they studied India throughly to keep her under subjugation.
Robert Clive, the Governor of British India at the time, made an extensive research in Indian economic and agricultural systems. He found that Indian society was firmly footed in it’s age old customs and sound economical and agricultural practices, all based on cow protection. We can quote a letter of Lord MClau here, a British Colonial dated february 2, 1835.
” I have traveled across the length and breath of India and i have not seen one person who is a beggar, who is a thief, such wealth i have seen in this country, such high moral values, people of such caliber ( of noble character), that i do not think we would ever conquer this country…………unless we break the very backbone of this nation which is her spiritual and cultural heritage .”
So during his surveys, Robert Clive found that in 1740, in the Arcot district of Tamal Nadu, , 54 Qunintals of rice was harvested from one acre of land using manure and pesticides made from cow urine and cow dung. Cow was the foundation of this great nation and cows greatly outnumbered men. He realized that unless this foundation was shaken up, they could not keep their hold on India for too long. This inspired him to open the first ever slaughter house in India in 1760, with a capacity to kill thousands of cows every week. As a part of the master plan to destabilize India, cow slaughter was initiated .To this extent the British were quite successful. Cow slaughter, engineered by them, divided Muslim and Hindu communities which had coexisted peacefully for the last 700 years. Millions died in ensuing riots which lasted for decades . To this day India and Pakistan are locked in bitter enemity and continuously suffering.
Robert Clive started a number of slaughter houses before he left India. By 1910, 350 slaughterhouses were working day and night. India was reduced to severe poverty, millions were dying from hunger and malnutrition, age old cottage industries were devastated and village artisans took up jobs as coolies in cities. Manchester cloth effectively destroyed Indian handlooms and textile enterprise. Using Indian money and Indian manpower, the British were expanding their empire all over the world.
Bereft of its cattle wealth, India had to approach England for industrial manure. Thus industrial manure like urea and phosphate made way to India. Indian villages, in which once flowed streams of milk and butter, became haunted hamlets, wretched and starving. A paradise was lost. An India where horses and bullocks were made to drink ghee, was now suffering from scarcity of margarine. It was total devastation of a great civilization. ”
The British established an educational system which decried anything connected with Indian tradition.
By the time British departed from India, thousands of slaughterhouses were in operation and now its hard to keep a count of them. ”
The result is this — 40000 suicides by Indian farmers ever year and the largest number of malnourished children in the World. ”
India has now become one of the worlds largest exporters of beef.
