Prime Minister Narendra Modi today inaugurated the Sabarmati Ashram centenary celebrations in Ahmedabad and while addressing the people, he spoke about the rampant cow vigilantism in the country and said that killing humans in the name of cow protection is not ‘gau raksha’.
Speaking about the issue, PM Modi said that no one spoke about protecting cows more than Mahatma Gandhi and Acharya Vinoba Bhave, however, killing people in the name of ‘Gau Bhakti’ (faith on cows) is not acceptable. “This is not something Mahatma Gandhi would approve,” said the Prime Minister.
After KRK made his comment on Twitter, many users were left irked, while some praised him, Here’s how they reacted:

Reacting strongly on the recent incidents of lynching in the name of cow vigilantism, PM Modi today said, “India is a land of non-violence. A land of Mahatma Gandhi. Why do we forget that.”
“Let’s all work together. Let’s create the India of Mahatma Gandhi’s dreams. Let’s create an India our freedom fighters would be proud of,” added the PM.
