The cow in many religious Scriptures and publications.
( as in the Torah, Quran, Gita and Bible)
By Prof Ghulam Mohyuddin Wani
The cow has been respected and honoured creature in all the religious publications and scriptures. Most of the riots and killing in India in the earlier has been on this issue. The warrior factions probably in no way understood that all the religions of the entire world as seen from the holly publications the Quran,Gita,Bibel and Torah have point out of the cow. The Quran the holly e-book of GOD names it many moments and comprehensive chapter is named the COW ,AL-BAQUAR.This content assessments the information and facts to convey a common brotherhood and frequent understanding of 1 GOD ,connect with him Allah,khuda or bagvan he is a person and only a person.
1st of all I must apologize for any theological mistakes as I am a scientist of the animal sciences and not of the theology. My intension in this article is to symbolize the cow much more as a scientific wonder than a religious belief. The cow feeds us all on her milk produced of her blood .She like our mom is to have a thanks regard in all societies and cultures. I know of my tradition we in Previous JOOScould be Jews ,wandering tribe of IsraelKhowaja or now named as wani generally connect with a cow GAW MUOG the mom cow and beloved her,the custom goes even now in kashmir.
We will examine the cow in 3 sections .In portion one we shall reveiw the information and facts from web sites on the description and interpretation of several holly publications .THIS Info HAS BEEN Collected FRON THE World wide web AND IS ACKNOWLEDGED.The portion 2 shall be a scientific interpretation specified by the uncovered in the field of worried theology .The 3rd and final concluding paras shall be centered on our individual scientific and philosophic metamorphosis and analysis mainly from the reference materials revealed by Anil Chawla.
We apologize in progress for omissions and talk to all of you to you should notify us about your views and criticize it ,so as to act Friends of our forthcoming e-book .
Whilst the chapter 2 of the holly Quran is named the cow or the Al-Baqarah.Being the chapter in which most of the tenements of the religious beliefs and theological thoughts have been clearfied,naming it as the cow reveals the esssensc.,Normally as writers when we sit to write a e-book we opt for to title a chapter with most favoured phrase .Just like a newspaper chooses his headline with treatment, relevance and to assault attension.
CUSTOMS AND RITES
Lots of men and women confuse customs with religious commandments. Spiritual CUSTOMS AND Ceremony S LIKE dresses, taking in habits,language,dress,tunes ,community habits are not able to be equalized as a belief or testimony, The Muslim faith fundamental concepts like Aaeman.klama, Nimaz,zakat,haj are the necessities of the faith, The customs are localized and can be distinct in a place. Sad to say occasionally religious superior is diluted with customs or even the behaviour of a person or girls contacting him or her belonging to a certain faith.
A THEIF,KILLER OR A PROSTITUTE ,CORRUPT Person ,ADULATOR,EVIL WHISPHERER,CONSPIRATOR OR A LAIR HAS NO Put IN ISLAM. Even if he names himself as a Muslim he are not able to be regarded as a muslim.Even names were not adjusted after conversion all through the days of prophet.
“We feel in Allah, and the revelation specified to us, and to Abraham, Ismail, Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes, and that specified to Moses and Jesus, and that specified to (all) prophets from their Lord: We make no variance among a person and another of them: And we bow to Allah (in Islam).”
Universal brotherhood strategy.
So these verses of Quran make the ISLAM as a faith broader than some of us determine or malign it. It has a theory of common brotherhood. A Muslim is permitted to marry a Jew or a Christian or any individual who feel in a person God ,A Muslim is permitted to have food of Jews .Christians or any a person provided it is clean up and totally free from forbidden products like blood, swine flesh and many others Even below excessive problem he is permitted to try to eat what is forbidden but it really should be in utter require not as a luxurious .So having a boarder method to existence than the ordinary suicidal tendency and despondency.
.There is no commandment to be non-vegetarian or vegetarian. A Muslim can be a person who does not try to eat meat,. The person has been born and left in the jungle .He was a hunter, all hunt to try to eat. So all historical tradition was non-vegeterian.The Islam does not talk to you to try to eat this or that, but presents us liberty even to try to eat the forbidden products to continue to keep alive.
It is almost nothing to do with the TAQWA , ONESS OF God. The crucial part of the faith, which is a commonality in all religions. The conceptual theory which determines your faith,Foodstuff is optional and permitted below duress or in dare require, but starvation strike s or demise by self suicidal functions is strictly forbidden.
The cow named surah or chapter of Quran is revealed in Medina and have information of the legislature and much more in depth variations than those people revelled to Mohammad in Mecca.
The cow in Herbrew
In herbrew the yellow heifer defines and described as preference of God for sacrifice to Mosses like the Issac to Ibrahim is described as HAEGGEL ,:The sin of the calf .
THE Apis Bull of EGYPT
In Egyypt, the Apis Bull was the object of worship, . Among the Egyptians’ and Hebrews’ the wild bull, was greatly worshipped, often as the Lunar Bull .So these cultures regarded the cattle much more terrified than the Hinduss,The a person problem which arrive to head is that it is a customized much more than a religious myth as some of immanent scholar of Sanskrit and Vedic literature have described, Whatever ,the cow or the ox have been essential an crucial portion of the world tradition and customs from moments immoral ..
When Mosses went up onto Mount Sinaia to receive the Ten Commandments (Exodus 19:20 he left the Israelites for forty days and forty evenings. The Israelites feared that he would not return .They complied and collected golden earrings. Then melted them and made the golden calf.The Israelites produced offerings and celebrated. In Hebrew the incident is acknowledged as ???’ ha‘?ggel or “The Sin of the Calf”.
CRETAN BULL OF GREEKS
It is also talked about as Cretan Bull of Greek myth. So the Indian Myth of the cattle being terrified is shared by other tradition also like the Herbrew,Arabs,Egyptians and Greeks.It is consequently a ritual or customized than a command ment of God and consequently has distinct variations. The strategy of GOD being the only a person to be worshiped and that it has no actual physical type has been talked about in our earliest discussion in these net web pages also. The God is a tagali= light supply also powerful and illuminative this realty is recognized in all the religions books including VEDAS
In Moses farewell blessing to the Jewish men and women, he describes Joseph as an “ox”: “The most eminent, his [is the energy of the] ox that is specified to him….”(Deut. 33:seventeen) In Jacob’s blessing to Joseph, the very same term for “ox” appears, while in a distinct meaning, that of “wall”: “A fruitful son is Joseph, a fruitful son above the [evil] eye daughters tread over the wall [to gaze on him]. (Gen. forty nine:22) The text for “over the wall” in Hebrew are “alei shur“, which if a bit revocalized can be browse: “Ascend, O ox!” (“aleh” “shor
So they devised to make the Golden Calf, which is also termed an “ox”, with the impressive magic resources in their mouths, which upset the purchase of the supernal realms. All the powers we talked about put together alongside one another – that of the evil [produced by the Jews' sin], that of the magic [powers they possessed], that of the holiness of Aaron’s, and that of the holy Name etched in the golden plate that was utilised to elevate Joseph from the Nile. This mix manufactured the Golden Calf, which was animated by the religious existence-force of their grandfather Be’or. [Be'or] consequently ascended from the vegetable to the animal kingdom, and [the Mixed Multitude] recognized him as their leader, who would notify them of the foreseeable future and explain to them what ever they would require to know. And all this was attainable by the fact that they produced the Israelites sin, as talked about.
The soul of the wicked Be’or, which was existing in this calf, was who yelled out, stating “This is your G-d, O Israel!” (Ex. 32:four) as our sages have said. (See Pirkei d’Rabbi Eliezer 25)
DHARMA. Hindus must notice that enriching the existence of bovine and other beneficial animals is DHARMA. Earning initiatives to construct a healthful and huge population of cattle in India is DHRAMA. On the path of DHARMA, a clever person is not perturbed by demise considering the fact that he understands that soul is immortal – “Weapons are not able to slash it nor can fireplace burn up it water are not able to drench it nor can wind make it dry.” ANIL CHAWLA ,1999 WROTE – Srimad Bhagavad-Gita (also termed Gita) is a person of the most sacred publications for Hindus. All through the war of MAHABHARAT, just before the beginning of the war, Arjuna who was a great warrior quickly produced self-question and elevated fundamental existentialist thoughts about the goal of existence and therefore of war which would have led to the annihilation of so many who have been quite dear to him. Lord Krishna who was a pal of Arjuna and was also driving his chariot all through the war shipped the sermon of Gita clarifying the fundamental thoughts elevated.
SWAMI VIVEKANANDA ON BEEF
(This letter was revealed in Letters to Editor, Hindustan Times dated 3rd January, 2002)
(Remember to pay a visit to ArchivesHT for much more information)
Swami Vivekananda stated: “You have generally to remember that since a small social customized is likely to be adjusted, you are not likely to drop your faith, not at all. Try to remember these customs have previously been adjusted. There was a time in this quite India when, without taking in beef, no Brahmin could remain a Brahmin you browse in the Vedas how, when a sanyasin, a king, or a great person arrived into a house, the most effective bullock was killed, how in time it was uncovered that as we have been an agricultural race, killing the most effective bulls meant annihilation of the race. Thus, the follow was stopped, and a voice
So it is apparent the regard of the cows and the cattle as a entire is shared by all religious publications.Some try to eat it and some don not is a customized and no a faith.Howerver ,in Jammu and kahmir condition of India ,a muslim the greater part condition has the constitution which bans the cow slaughter and a person finds quite couple of muslims in Kashmir who willingly try to eat beef.This is not accurate of the other Indian or Pakistani muslims who try to eat beef as preference.Even the jummuiets from the borders and even those people coming from tribal belt in Kashmir the Khatans and many others do try to eat beef outside the house their condition but not the kashmiri talking muslims and Pandits.This also consequently indicates it that is a customized of a race and not a religiom.In rest of ASIA ,MIDDLEEAST Goats are sacrificed on EID –UL-BAKAR,.The goat meat is phefered in all these areas but not in Kashmir wherever the muslims and Hindu also like sheep meat and that also with body fat and not also lean, These are habits and not faith. So a muslim can be Muslim without taking in beef.
This verse refers to the tale of the golden calf produced and worshipped by the Israelites immediately after their exodus from Egypt. While Moses (Musa (as.)) was in communion with God on the heights of mount Sinai, while revelation was in the method of being sent down to him, while God was manifesting His presence to Moses and divulging to him the strategies of creation and of the structure of faith, some of the Israelites (below the path and supervision of a individual termed Samiri) made and worshipped a statue of a golden calf
COWS AND Surroundings
The use of degraded agriculture wastes and deoiled cakes by COWS and their conversion into milk. Meat and other useful products and solutions ,saves of wastage and consuming non-edible nitrogenous make a difference like cellulose and deoiled cakes and in flip including nitrogen to the soil hells us to maintain soil health and fitness and nitrogen cycle. The draught energy has been in depth in our earlier content .It aids India alone to save hundreds of thousands do bucks ,The fossil fuel price tag and carbon burn up is a essential for the climatic alter ,consequently the position of cows in its desired ratio for every hectare is handy but not damaging,howerve the quantities are to be confined which is happenening as cross breeds give much more for every animal efficiency than locals and cross bred ratio expanding in the Hindi northern belt speaks volumes. The troubles encounter each below rained and irrigatated cropping units is with male and unproductive animals .A survival of the fittest components even does not use in this article, consequently critical believed is required, We have proposed a unified use of these animals for investigate and progress by all drug and medication screening companies,corporations,vet college or university, health care experimental stations and the vitality demanding institute and NGOs .A in depth strategy to mitigate this and other customary troubles have been proposed with in framework of the constitution and the populace cultural ethos.
PHILOSOPHY OF GITA by anil chawla describing the economics of the cattle.
(The subsequent extracts are from his totally free net publications,and are cited in this article as scolarly references from him and not me)
“For the demise of him who is born is sure and the rebirth of him who is lifeless is unavoidable. It does not, thus, behove you to grieve over an unavoidable party.” (Verse 27, Chapter 2, Srimad Bhagavad-Gita)
Lord Krishna states that it is incorrect to grieve about demise considering the fact that demise is like a alter of dresses. Soul presents up its aged dresses and takes on new types. Focussing on existence and accepting demise as an integral portion of existence – is the essence of Gita which applies to each and every part of human existence. It is this philosophy that enabled Krishna to be an animal-lover and but be a superior hunter. Comprehension the philosophy of Gita is necessary to understand animal-rearing.
In the field of animal rearing Intake and Safety are two sides of the very same coin. 1 who consumes is the a person who shields and vice-versa. Muslims in India sacrifice goats at the time of Eid-ul-zuha and eat the meat. The other aspect of this is that Muslims feed and consider treatment of a goat for a comprehensive yr or alternatively fork out a significant sum to a person who has taken treatment of the sacrificial goat. On the other hand there are Jains who do not try to eat meat and do almost nothing to rear or consider treatment of goats. India is the greatest client of goat meat in the entire world and India has the greatest goat population in the entire world. Pakistan does not eat pig-meat and it has just about no pigs. All through the earlier 30 many years the usage of eggs and chicken in India has improved just about tenfold. This has led to the poultry marketplace having a significant strengthen and there has been an unparalleled enhance in the population of hens. It will not be an exaggeration to say that if mankind stopped consuming eggs and chicken entirely, hen as a species could vanish from the surface of earth.
Cow is deemed sacred and is worshipped in India while in adjoining Pakistan there are no these beliefs. However, when a cow dies in India, its regular carcass excess weight is just about 103 Kg and in Pakistan the regular carcass excess weight is about 185 Kg. The figure for Usa and Germany is about 315 Kg. In other text, cows in India are not butchered but are tortured to a slow and distressing demise by starvation. A foolish interpretation of DHARMA (loosely translated as responsibility or faith) has led some Indians to oppose cow slaughter primary to a predicament wherever cows are neither cared for nor secured. A refusal to acknowledge demise of cow has produced existence hell for cow. Going stray on roads Indian cow is pressured to try to eat polythene baggage and die a distressing demise. All talks of non-violence and pity by religious leaders audio nice but are not able to give the crucial elements of existence to Indian cows.
Milk Production in India has improved considerably all through the earlier 3 decades immediately after Countrywide Dairy Enhancement Board introduced Operation Flood. However, the for every capita availability of milk in India in 1997 was just about 58.5 Kg for every annum. The corresponding figure for Pakistan is 116.3 Kg, Germany – 238.8 Kg, Russia – 145.one Kg, Usa – 251.3 Kg. Some people could be amazed that the for every capita availability of milk in India is just about 50 percent of that in Pakistan even though economically Pakistan is just about in the very same bracket as India. The misguided orthodox zealots who oppose all mechanized slaughter houses and meat exports often argue that constant slaughtering of progeny of cows will direct to elimination of cows and bulls from the place resulting in a milk famine. The fact is just reverse – the international locations that eat cow-meat have significantly greater milk availability.
The economics of animal rearing is centered on milk as perfectly as meat. Anytime any cow or buffalo presents delivery, there is an just about equal probability of a male or female calf. A dairy farmer rears a female calf in expectation of milk, while a male is reared for possibly meat or for use as a draught animal. It is the put together economics of milk, meat and harness that helps make investments attainable in dairy marketplace. If any of the 3 pillars is disturbed, the economics of dairy marketplace is badly affected. In most produced international locations, there is no use of animal in harness but desire for meat aids stability the economics of dairy marketplace. In historical India, considerable use of bullocks as draught animals produced dairy farming practical even without the use of meat. In fashionable India, on a person hand, subsidies on electrical power for farming, tractors, diesel and many others. have eradicated the require to use animals for ploughing and carriage of goods. On the other hand, a myriad of restrictions on bovine meat have properly prevented Indian dairy farmers from having a fair price tag for bovine meat. This has rendered male bovine animals entirely worthless therefore influencing the economics and progress of the Indian dairy marketplace.
India exports just about 10 million tonnes of de-oiled cakes each and every yr to international locations like Pakistan, Iran, Thailand, Korea, Japan and many others. who have a greater produced dairy marketplace. De-oiled cakes are loaded in proteins and are generally utilised as component for animal feed. In addition to resulting in protein deficiency in an impoverished place like India, export of de-oiled cakes disturbs the Nitrogen cycle of mother nature resulting in the soil to drop fertility. Animals accomplish a beneficial ecological perform by consuming non-edible nitrogenous make a difference like cellulose and de-oiled cakes. Faecal make a difference of animals completes the nitrogen cycle and enriches the soil. In the absence of sufficiently huge amount of animals, agriculture starts off shedding its long phrase viability. Therefore, it is necessary that the economics of Indian dairy farming is strengthened so that Indian de-oiled cakes can be fed to Indian animals which are crucial pre-requisite for preserving soil fertility over the long phrase.
Cow dung also performs a minimal albeit essential position in dairy economics. Weighty subsidies on chemical fertilizers have decreased the desire for cow dung. This has produced it unattainable for any dairy farmer to feed a non-milking cow.
Dairy marketplace performs a essential position in the agro-centered economics of India. Strengthening dairy marketplace is crucial for removing poverty of the huge the greater part of Indian population which is dwelling even now in rural regions. The 3 pillars of dairy farming economics – Milk, Meat and Use in Harness – require to be strengthened. Just as Countrywide Dairy Enhancement Board has completed commendable do the job in the field of milk, there is an urgent require for identical do the job in the field of meat. Govt of India really should set a target to eradicate exports of de-oiled cakes in the upcoming 5 to 10 many years. Subsidies on tractors, diesel, farm-use-electrical power, chemical fertilizers really should be gradually eradicated. Use of mineral fuel centered autos really should be banned in sure dense regions of cities and in these regions only human and animal run autos really should be permitted. This will not only enhance utility of animals in harness but will also support reduce air pollution in Indian city centres that have become just about inhabitable. Use of fashionable engineering really should be promoted in animal run autos.
Hindu faith is centered on “SANATAN” truths – specifics and concepts that have generally been accurate and shall generally are. It was this understanding of SANATAN truth of the matter that led the Lord Shiva who is acknowledged as a God of destruction being also termed Lord PASHUPATINATH, the deity that is the operator and protector of all animals. Shiva family carries with it a symbolism that illustrates the strategy of mutual dependence of beings for food and other requires. The car of Shiva is a bullock while his wife Parvati’s car is a lion that preys on bullock. Shiva’s son Ganesha moves all over on a rat while snakes (who try to eat rats) cling all over the neck of Lord Shiva. On the other hand snakes are devoured by peacock which is the car of Shiva’s other son Kartik. Cycle of mother nature is centered on these mutual dependence and mutual checks & balances. 1 who understands this cycle and does not get disturbed by demise is a clever person. He accepts demise as a necessary plan. Commitments in direction of existence somewhat than concerns about demise are the guiding concepts for all his actions. DHARMA (loosely translated as responsibility or faith) is not in avoiding demise nor is it in fearing demise nor is it in stressing about or grieving over demise. Existence and dwelling existence is DHARMA. If moved by the fears of demise non-violence weakens existence and if violence accepts demise to sooner or later improve existence, then violence is DHARMA and non-violence is ADHARMA (antonym or antitheses of DHARMA). This is the philosophy of Gita and this is the way of upliftment of any society.
