In Hinduism, the cow is a symbol of wealth, strength, abundance, selfless giving and full of earthly life. Cow has traditional status as a sacred animal in Hinduism. Dairy products are extensively used in Hindu culture and are one of the most essential nutritional components of Hindu meals.
There are many Cows in India which are being looked after by different Gaushalas in the country. However with limited Source of Income, mostly in the forms of donation, these gaushalas are finding it difficult to look after Cows and eventually leading to selling off cow to different Cow Slaughter Houses, where they are killed to sell their beef.
