A court in the Tapi district of Gujarat said that peace would prevail in this world the day cow slaughter ends, and all problems will be solved while sentencing a 22-year-old man to life imprisonment for illegal transportation of cattle from the state of Maharashtra.
Cows give birth to the religion, as religion is in the form of Vṛṣabha, and the son of a cow is called Vṛṣabha as well, said the Judge of Tapi District Court, S. V. Vyas.
The Sanskrit Shloka quoted by the court said that the universe would cease to exist if cows went extinct, and the origin of the Vedas with its six organs is because of cows. The court noted that killing cows is unlawful and used two other Shlokas, roughly translated to, "Where cows remain happy, all wealth and property is gained. Where cows remain unhappy, wealth and property remains unhappy and disappear...Cow is the mother of Rudra, daughter of Vasu, sister of Aditiputras, and treasure of Dhrutroop Amrit."
"Cow is not only an animal, but it is the mother. That is why it is given the name of the mother. None is so grateful as a cow. A cow is the living planet of 68 crore holy places and thirty-three crore gods. The obligation of a cow on the entire universe defies description. The day when no drop of cow blood drops on the earth, all problems of the earth will be solved, and the well-being of the earth will be established. There is much talk of cow protection and cow rearing, but it is not put into practice," the court added while addressing the incidents of cow slaughter and cow smuggling to be a disgrace to civil society.
The court also claimed during the discussion about the importance of cows that it is scientifically proven that houses built from cow dung are immune to atomic radiation, and Gaumutra (cow urine) is used as a cure for many incurable diseases.

This observation was made while dealing with the case of Mohammed Aameen Arif Anjum, who was detained three years ago in July 2020 for unlawful transportation. He was carrying 16 cows along with their calves in a truck. In the vehicle, there was no facility for food or water provided to the cows, who were tied with a rope.
Anjum was booked under various sections of the Indian Penal Code. He was booked under the Gujarat Essential Commodities and Cattle (Control) Act, 2005; the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960; the Gujarat Animal Preservation (Amendment) Act, 2011 and also the Central Motor Vehicles (Eleventh Amendment) Rules, 2015.
In the court, the prosecution proved that the police did not falsely implicate the accused, as he was found driving the vehicle from where the cows and their calves were rescued at the time of the incident.
It was also proven by the prosecution that the accused did not possess any certificate of a competent authority or written permission for the transportation of cattle. Hence, the court presumed the accused was transporting the cows for slaughter.
After that, Anjum was found guilty under Section 2 of the Gujarat Control of Animal Transportation Order, 1975, Section 4 of Gujarat Essential Commodities And Animal Control Act, 2015, Sections 5, 6, 7 of the Gujarat Animal Preservation Act, 2011, Section-11 (1) (d),(e), (f),(h) of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act 1960 and also section-125 (e) of Central Motor Vehicle (11th Amendment) Act,2015. Alongside a fine of Rs. 500,000, he was also sentenced to life imprisonment.
The court said in the 24-page order that in the present situation, three-quarters of the cow's wealth is already either lost or destroyed, while only a quarter remains.
