The Sanatan Dharma Prachar Seva Samiti president, Sadhvi Saraswati’s recent speech has left Kerala in quite a rebellious moo-d! She gave a heartfelt speech last Friday at Badaidka in Kasargod district of Kerala about how cow slaughterers should be condemned and that they have no right to live in India. She also compared slaughtering of our celebrated Gau mata to eve teasing or harassing our own mothers. Her exact words were, “If your mother is standing in junction and goons are teasing her, what would you do? But in Kerala, cows are publicly slaughtered in front of your eyes… Those who slaughter cow, they should also be slaughtered in public square.”
But Sadhvi Saraswati’s does not condemn all kinds of slaughter. No no, she encourages the youth to gift their Hindu sisters swords so that they can slash the neck of any Love Jihadi and offer it to Mother India.
The Badaidka police registered a case against her. The local Keralites on the other hand were not going to let this Gau-loving religious leader off so easily. They have quite graciously spammed Saraswati Ji’s Facebook page with pictures of Kerala beef delicacies, some even posting recipes of special beef dishes!
Many of the trolls were just trying to prove to Saraswati Ji that condemning one of Kerala’s traditionally much-loved meats as well as the people who cook it is simply unacceptable.
Hopefully with all the udder-ly useful advice and recipes from her dear Mallu fans, Sadhvi Saraswati Ji comes out with a sincere apology and decides to not try and tell people what they can and cannot eat. But it seems unlikely.
