Sadh Foundation vs Union Of India on 17 December, 2015

1. The petition filed in public interest seeks a direction to the respondent

Union of India (UOI) to prohibit cow slaughtering and to take action against

the slaughter houses. A further direction is also sought to make

arrangements so that maximum environmental and economic benefits from

the cow to mankind may be provided.
2. Considering the nature of the reliefs claimed, we did not deem it

expedient to issue formal notice and heard the counsel for the respondent

UOI appearing on advance notice and reserved judgment.

W.P.(C) No.3996/2015 Page 1 of 3
3. The petitioner, in the petition as well as in additional facts/evidences

filed after the judgment was reserved has set out the benefits of cow milk

and other products of cow and benefits of rearing cows. Suffice it is to state

that the Legislature whenever has deemed necessary has framed appropriate

laws in this regard and challenge thereto has been considered by the Court.

Reference in this regard may be made to Mohd. Hanif Quareshi Vs. The

State of Bihar AIR 1958 SC 731, Manubhai Nandlal Amorsey Vs. Popatlal

Manilal Joshi (1969) 1 SCC 372 and State of Gujarat Vs. Mirzapur Moti
