Kerala punished with floods for slaughtering cows: BJP MLA

Aug 27, 2018

Vijaypura’s BJP MLA Basanagouda Patil Yatnal invited massive ire after he claimed that the prevailing situation in Kerala was because the state had hurt Hindu sentiments. “In Kerala, people openly slaughter cows. What happened? Within a year, a situation like this (flood) arose. Whoever hurts the Hindu religious beliefs will face such consequences,” he said recently. Yatnal would then elaborate on how Hindus worship cows and killing the animal is at par with killing humans.

The remarks have invited massive retaliation with people at large accusing Yatnal of being insensitive to the ground realities. Others have said that he is only interested in making headline-grabbing statements which have no scientific backing or backing of logic.

Logic perhaps does not figure too high in Yatnal’s priorities as he has made several controversial remarks in the past as well. He had said just last month that if he could, he would have had all intellectuals shot dead because of their support for the human rights of terrorists. In June, he had stirred the hornet’s nest when he said that BJP corporators have been told not to work for Muslims.

Statements like these have repeatedly given fodder to opposition parties in their bid to attack BJP. Yatnal’s most recent statement on Kerala floods could put embarrass the central leadership of his party at a time when PM Narendra Modi has repeatedly said he stands with the people in the state in their time of need.
