Give `Rashtra Mata’ status to cow: Uttarakhand Law Commission

The Uttarakhand Law Commission has recommended changes in the State’s Protection of Cow Progeny Act to declare the animal “mother of the nation”. “The cow should be declared Rashtra Mata in the interest of the nation and justice,” the state’s Law Commission said in its fifth report to the State government. Changes in the 2007 Act are also necessary for setting up shelters for stray cows, and penalising cattle owners for cruelty, the report said.
