> ROBERT CLIVE CRUSHED HINDUISM
> THE SACRED ANIMAL
> Cows are the most sacred animals to the Hindus and this is not without any
> reason. Hindus believe that all Gods and Goddesses live inside a Cow
> COW SLAUGHTER IS A CRIME
> Cow slaughter and slaughterhouses are banned even today in Nepal. In
> India, very few are aware of the fact that Article 48 of the Indian
> Constitution (Directive Principles of State Policy) says clearly that the
> government must protect the cow, its progeny and other cattle used in
> agriculture, not just because the cows are sacred to Hindus but because
> Cows have been the backbone of Agriculture and milk production in this
> country ever since the dawn of civilization. To millions of poor families
> in India, even today Cow's milk is the only source of nutrient to their
> kids and babies.
> NEHRU AND GANDHI FAILED
> Both Mahathma Gandhi and Pandit Nehru had declared before Independence
> that they would ban Cow slaughter in India after Independence. Obviously
> they did not impose it. Why?
> THE FALSE BELIEF
> Thanks to Robert Clive who had converted the Indian Muslims into believing
> that beef eating was their religious right. Cow slaughter had become a vote
> bank issue So Robert Clive decided to break the backbone of agriculture in
> India – the holy cows have to be targeted. And thus was opened the first
> slaughterhouse of cows in India in 1760 by Robert Clive at Kolkata. It had
> a capacity to kill 30,000 cows per day. And anyone can guess within a
> year's time how many cows would have been killed. And within a century
> India had very little cattle left to sustain its agricultural needs.And
> Britain as an alternative started offering artificial manure, and in this
> manner urea, phosphate etc started getting imported from England.
> ROBERT CLIVE AND THE WRONGS
> Guess what, till 1760 most of India had banned not only cow slaughter, but
> also prostitution and drinking wine was banned as well. Robert Clive made
> all three legal and removed the ban.
> THE SUICIDE
> Guess what happened to the man who started all this? Robert Clive became a
> opium addict and later committed suicide by stabbing himself with a pen
> knife after being unable to withstand the pain caused by the illness that
> had resulted from opium addiction.
> THE BRITISH AND THE FRENCH
> Clive first arrived in India in 1743 as a civil servant of the East India
> Company; and later returned to England in 1753. Meanwhile, in Bengal, where
> the British and the French were contesting for supremacy, the Company
> required the services of an able commander. Clive was eager to return to
> India; and soon the summons came. He arrived in India in 1756 and by the
> end of 1760 he lifted the ban on cow slaughter which was his first step
> toward his suicide.
