A group of Shia Muslims in Uttar Pradesh have formed a group to educate people on the issue. The group known as the Gau Rakshak Dal will go around the state and educate people on the issue which has become a subject matter of debate in the country.

Shia Muslims form 'cow protection group'

The formation of the group comes in the wake of the All India Shia Personal Board issuing a fatwa against cow slaughter. It said that cow slaughter leads to communal tension. The fatwa was issued in consultation with Ayotollah Sheikh Basheer Najafi, a top Shia cleric from Iraq.

The issue of cow slaughter has been making national headlines almost everyday. On Friday the Supreme Court sought an explanation from six states on a petition that sought action against cow vigilantism.

In Uttar Pradesh after Yogi Adityanath took over chief minister, he ordered closure of all illegal slaughterhouses in the state. This had led to an indefinite closure of slaughterhouses in the state. However the issue was resolved after the CM held talks.
