BJP MLA Gyan Dev Ahuja on Tuesday said cow slaughtering is a bigger crime than terrorism and those involved in it will have to face consequences.
“Cow slaughtering is a bigger crime than terrorism. Terrorists kill 2-3 people, but when a cow is killed, sentiments of crores of Hindus are hurt. If cows are killed, people will be angry & cow smugglers will face consequences,” ANI quoted Ahuja, who represents Ramgarh Vidhan Sabha constituency of Rajasthan, as saying.
