Former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag has made a name for himself for taking a strong stand on social media platforms for the armed forces. A popular name on micro-blogging site Twitter, this time Sehwag was impressed by cow’s gratitude and to show that, uploaded an old picture of a cow. As per the caption of the image, it was taken in 2008 in Sri Lanka after a monk reportedly saved the lives of cows. “Gratitude of a Cow. Quite amazing ????,” wrote Sehwag with the image.

However, he isn’t the only cricketer who posted on Twitter regarding the issue. Sehwag’s former opening partner Aakash Chopra also posted on Twitter about the same. “गाय हमारी माता है, हमको कुछ नहीं आता है….Quite apt for today’s times,” wrote Chopra on his Twitter handle.

These tweets have come in the wake of the debate over cattle slaughter ban in India. Recently, eight students were booked allegedly beating up IIT-Madras PhD scholar R Sooraj after he took part in a beef fest. “The BJP is saying this clearly that the question of having a law in a state on cow slaughter is to be decided by the state and not the Centre. Every state government that decides to have a law or not have a law on cow slaughter, do so keeping in mind the local food habits of that particular state and in the North East every state government will keep this in account,” BJP leader Nalin Kohli who is in-charge of the party’s affairs in Meghalaya said.

“The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Regulation of Livestock Markets) Rules 2017 is based on recommendations of a Parliamentary Committee report, which included members of all political parties and a Supreme Court order,” he added.
