RSS's Muslim wing to launch a campaign against 'cow slaughter' during Bakra Eid
The Muslim Rashtriya Manch (MRM), an affiliated Muslim wing of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) is soon to launch a nationwide campaign to appeal to the Muslim community against 'sacrificing of cows' ahead of Eid-al-Adha (Bakra Eid), according to a Hindustan Times report.

Regarding this, a meeting of ulemas (Islamic scholars) who are associated with the concerned organisations has been called by the MRM in New Delhi on Tuesday, where a resolution will be passed in the presence of senior RSS functionary Indresh Kumar, who supervises MRM's affairs. The campaign of the MRM will especially focus on West Bengal, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar against sacrificing of cows. 

Meanwhile, National Convenor of the MRM, Mohammad Afzal said, "Our appeal to Muslims against sacrificing of cows during Eid-al-Adha is based on a fatwa issued by Darool Uloom Deoband four years ago. We asked the Islamic seminary's fatwa department for its ruling on whether hurting the sentiments of the Hindus by offering cow sacrifices is sanctioned in Islam. They said Islam does not sanction hurting the sentiments of neighbours adhering to other beliefs." 

"We'll focus on Bengal because it is the state where our campaign against cow slaughter faced the toughest resistance. There is a court order banning cow slaughter on Eid al-Adha in the state but the government never tried to implement it," Afzal told HT.

Earlier this year, the MRM had organised more than 1,000 cow milk parties across India serving cow milk to the fasting Muslims at Iftar during Ramadan (the holy month of fasting).
