Karnataka govt mulls ban on cow slaughter, beef consumption

Bengaluru, Jul 11: The Bharatiya Janata Party led government of Karnataka is planning to ban cow slaughter as well as the sale and consumption of beef in the state by bringing Prevention of Cow Slaughter and Preservation Bill, 2012.

"Many states have passed the Anti-Cow Slaughter Bill. We are preparing to implement it in Karnataka as well. The state government will soon implement a ban on cow slaughter, sale and consumption of beef on the lines of many other states," said Prabhu Chauhan, the state's Animal Husbandry Minister.

The Anti-Cow Slaughter Act is already in place in several states like Gujarat, Delhi, Haryana, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh among others.

Last month, the Yogi Adityanath-led Uttar Pradesh government passed a draft ordinance to prevent cow slaughter, providing maximum rigorous imprisonment of 10 years and a fine up to Rs 5 lakh.
The Uttar Pradesh Cabinet Cow Slaughter Prevention (Amendment) Ordinance, 2020 aims at making the existing Uttar Pradesh Prevention of Cow Slaughter Act, 1955 more effective towards cow safety.

In Karnataka, the BJP-led government had promised to ban cow slaughter in its manifesto for 2018 state assembly election.

"The government will form a team of experts to look into once the current pandemic situation eases," Chauhan stated, adding that if necessary, the team of experts will visit states like Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat.

The then BS Yediyurappa-led BJP government had passed the Karnataka Prevention of Cow Slaughter and Protection Bill in 2010 but it failed to get presidential approval. Three years later, the Bill was withdrawn by the Siddaramaiah-led Congress government.

"I will discuss this matter with Chief Minister and if this pandemic situation eases, by next session, if not by upcoming assembly session, we will try to bring Karnataka Prevention of Slaughter and Preservation of Cattle Bill," Chauhan added.

Karnataka govt slammed over deaths of eight patients in Kalaburagi hospital

News Network
July 22,2020

Bengaluru, Jul 22: Congress MLA Priyank Kharge has questioned the Karnataka government on the alleged breakdown of oxygen in the intensive care unit (ICU) at ESIC hospital in Kalaburagi, saying he had got complaints that eight persons who were on ventilators had died.

He asked the government if it is "deliberately" hiding something about the patients that were admitted in ESIC.

"I have got complaints that eight people who were on ventilators are dead in ESIC Kalaburagi because there was oxygen breakdown in ICU. ESIC has not been admitting patients as the issue has not been resolved. Nobody is confirming or denying it. Is the Government deliberately hiding something?" he asked.
Kharge also accused the government of not having adequate facilities to combat COVID-19 in different parts of the state.

"I hope I am wrong, but if it is a fact, this ascertains that the administration has lost control over Corona pandemic in the district. No addition testing centre. No beds are available. PPE Kits and medical waste is thrown in Gulbarga Institute of Medical Sciences (GIMS)," he added.

According to the Union Health Ministry, there are 67420 COVID-19 cases in the state.

Karnataka HC quashes criminal cases against 9 foreign Tablighis

August 9,2020

Bengaluru, Aug 9: The High Court of Karnataka has quashed the criminal cases against nine foreign nationals belonging to the Tablighi  Jamaat on the condition that they immediately leave the country, following an undertaking that they won’t visit India again in the next 10 years and pay the fine amount levied by the competent authority.

The court, however, did not quash the case against seven Indian nationals on grounds of their case being on a different footing.

A single bench of Justice Krishna S. Dixit issued the direction while hearing pleas filed by the 9 foreign nationals questioning the legality of the criminal cases against them for violating the Foreigners Act, 1946.

The 9 foreign nationals included Farhan Hussain and three others from South Africa, Rejo from Indonesia, and Saleh Imran Ahamed from the United States and Ibrahim Jassy and two others from Gambia. They were arrested after engaging in religious propagation in Tumakuru after attending the Tablighi Jamaat at Nizamuddin in Delhi, which later became hotspot for the spread of COVID-19. They were thereafter blacklisted by the Ministry of Home Affairs.

It was claimed that these foreign nationals had come to India with an e-Tourist visa but carried out preaching of religious principles, for which a Missionary visa is required. However, according to advocate Mohammed Tahir, who defended the petitioners, there is no specific prohibition in the visas in question for preaching religious principles in the Tablighi congregation.

The court didn’t agree with the petitioner advocate and noted that by the very nature of these visas, what is not provided for in the visa, is deemed to be impermissible. The general principle is that what all is not prohibited is permissible for a natural person and what all is not provided for is impermissible for a juristic person, ordinarily cannot be invoked by foreign nationals.

Regarding the petitioner’s contention that criminal proceedings were initiated by the police, with the prejudice generated by the

Media propaganda, and for the statistical purpose of the State, the Court stated that it hasn’t found any material for entertaining such a baseless grievance after careful examination of the entire file.

The Court observed that a legitimate impression is that the police having stood tall, exercised a lot of restraint despite running a huge risk of COVID-19 infection and tolerating the attack/assault by the miscreants.
