Ninety-four cattle were caught while being trafficked in separate incidents in Hyderabad city. Disclosing this Dhyan Foundation said one big double-decker container was caught in Pahadi Shareef P S Limits. It had 71 young calves stuffed one on top of the other like sacks of potatoes. One calf died on the spot. In another incident in another part of the city, in RGIA PS limits, another smaller double-decker vehicle was intercepted and caught and 23 cattle were recovered, mostly calves. All these gauvansh have been rehabilitated at Dhyan Foundation Gaushala in Shamshabad.
This is just in one day – countless cattle are being trafficked daily in the city for slaughter. Openly on social media, mafia groups are justifying their actions and openly threatening those who are following the law and saying they will take the law into their hands.
In the month of Ramadan, the Haleem dish is sold across the streets of Hyderabad and an essential ingredient is a slice of tender meat from the calves. 700 plus cattle have been rescued from illegal slaughter and 15 FIRs registered in the last 30 days alone, how many unfortunate ones went unnoticed and have met the butcher’s knife is anybody’s guess.

Government should provide security to those threatened by the mafia and enforce the law on these mafia elements who openly are destroying the ganga jamuna tehzeeb of this beautiful and culturally rich city, who are polluting its soil by dumping waste and blood from illegal slaughter into open drains, spreading disease and killing people and also hurting the religious sentiments of millions of Hindus and Muslims. Supreme Court Lawyer Advocate Shiraz Qureshi and Persian Scholar Imran Chaudhary visited the rescued animals at the animal shelter and expressed anguish at the activities of the mafia.
Is the city of Hyderabad above the rule of law? Have the reigns of the city been taken over by the cattle mafia? So it seems from the unabated crime against voiceless animals and rampant breaking of laws by goons of cattle mafia.
