President of the Akhil Bharatiya Gau Sewa, an RSS affiliate, Shankar Lal has sparked a controversy saying British cows are demonic and have the ability to increase crimes in children.
The RSS has launched a campaign to persuade the country’s middle class to rear their own cows and reject the foreign cows.
Lal was quoted as saying Indian cows are Saatvik and virtuous and drinking their milk increases productivity and produces no evil thoughts.
He also said Jersey cows have ‘devils in the milk’ and many poisonous particles. The Jersey cows were first imported during the British Raj for cross breeding with Indian varieties to improve the quality of milk.
