Cows will be safe in the state now!

Anyone caught staring at the cows will be detained by the newly formed ‘Pro-Bovine Squads’ in the state and will be prosecuted in accordance with the new law. Maximum punishment under this new law is 7 yrs imprisonment and 10 lakhs Rupees fine.

Confirming the new law, state CM Vijay Rupani said ,”We must aspire not only for a vegetarian Gujarat but also for a Gujarat where cows can roam freely without getting stared at. Cows should be free to go out at any time of the day or night without attracting stares from beef lovers. Protecting cows is our first and foremost duty and we are fully committed to that.”

When asked how will policemen know who is staring at a cow, Mr Rupani said ,”All members of our ‘Pro-Bovine Squad’ are veteran policemen. With all their experience, they can always tell who is just looking and who is staring. They can count feathers of a flying bird, distinguishing between looking and staring is easy for them.”

Meanwhile, sale of Sunglasses in the state hit a record high as people tried to avoid any risk and decided to just hide their eyes from the policemen.
