MCG faces criticism over opening of slaughterhouse in Gurgaon
Recently, following some cow's thefts in Gurgaon, people from Hindu community created a ruckus and set the vehicles carrying animals on fire. To deal with such undesired incidents in future, Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon made a plan of opening a slaughterhouse in sector 37.

However, this did not get down well with Saffron Warriors, Animals Activists from Armenia and environmentalists. So they were very quick to protest this proposal suggested by MCG. On this occasion, some of the students of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) in Delhi also came forward to be the part of this protest.

Swami Agnivesh joined the protests, claiming the opening of the slaughterhouse was actually a diabolical ploy to slaughter cows on the sly. "It may not be permissible to slaughter cows but when the abattoir is opened, they may start doing it. And we will have no authority to inspect the premises and stop the practice of cow slaughter if started," reported Times of India.

The Hindu community worships the cow as their Gaumata. Therefore, they always condemn the killing of the cows. That's why a huge protest was seen in front of the Mini Secretariat in Gurgaon on Thursday. To protest the administration, Saffron Brigade raised the slogans. From Delhi, JNU's students also joined this protest. Karen Mkrtchyan from Armenia doing Master's degree in German at JNU with disappointment said that opening a slaughterhouse means promoting the killing of the animals openly. This is totally against the animal's rights. Meanwhile other people said that it can also create the environment problems.

Ekta Kindhway, who is a member of the JNU Animal Rights Group, said, "There is a huge water crisis in the city. And they are set to open a slaughterhouse which will require huge amounts of natural resource. In slaughterhouses at Meerut, the groundwater has blood in it. We don't want the same thing to happen here as well."

Later the MCG officials tried to ensure that there will be no environment issue. The water will be enabled to drink by recycling it. The waste of the animals will be placed in a particular manner so that it can't affect the environment.
