RSS’ branch claims that cow dung can make atom bombs ineffective!

The Muslim Rashtriya Manch, an offshoot of the RSS, are urging Indian Muslims to give up beef. In one of their pamphlets titled Cow and Islam, they have claimed that cow dung can render hydrogen and atom bombs ineffective, reports The Hindu.

The booklet also asks Muslims to abstain from beef, and points out various examples in history to show that Muslims shunned beef. The booklet quotes Indresh Kumar a senior RSS functionary who says avoiding the consumption of beef could prevent diseases. He said: “Common Muslims will enjoy good health. Children and the aged will be saved from diseases. Strength of mind, intellect and character will increase.”

The booklet says that the Sufi saint Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti brought back life to a poor woman’s dead cow, and that the Hindus reverence of cow was a sign of “intellectual development”.

Meat, particularly beef bans, have been in the news in recent months with Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and senior journalist Rajdeep Sardesai exchanging open letters on the topic.
