'Scientifically Proven' That Cow Dung Protects Houses From Atomic Radiation, Says Gujarat Court
In a peculiar claim, a sessions court judge in Gujarat’s Tapi district emphasised the need to protect cows and said that it is ‘scientifically proven’ that houses made of cow dung aren’t affected by atomic radiation.
Observation made in November
The observation was made in November last year by Tapi district sessions judge Samir Vyas during the sentencing of a 22-year-old man to life imprisonment for transporting cows and bullocks from Gujarat to Maharashtra in violation of various laws.
The judge also mentioned that cow urine can cure many incurable diseases in the order made available recently.
In his statement, the judge expressed discontent over the slaughtering of cows and remarked that cows are not just animals but “our mother”.
‘Problems on Earth will be solved’
“All problems of the Earth will be solved the day no drop of cow’s blood drops on the Earth. Though we talk about cow protection, it is not implemented on the ground. Incidents of cow slaughter and illegal transportation are happening regularly. This is a disgrace to a civilised society,” the court noted in the order.
The judge said though 75 years have passed since India achieved independence, incidents of cow slaughter are on the rise instead of coming down.
“Cow is a symbol of religion. Food grown through cow-based organic farming protects us from many diseases. Science has proved that houses made of cow dung remain unaffected by atomic radiation and cow urine can cure many incurable diseases,” he added.
He said cows are in danger because the bovine is being slaughtered in “mechanised slaughterhouses” today and beef is served with meat to non-vegetarian people.

To make people realise the importance of cows, the judge cited some Sanskrit shlokas and said, “religion is born out of cow” because religion is in the form of a ‘Vrishabha’ (bull), which is the son of a cow.
Life imprisonment for cattle trade
The accused in the case, Mohammad Aamin Anjum, a Maharashtra resident, was arrested by Tapi police in August 2020 for allegedly trying to transport 16 cows and bullocks in a truck to Gujarat.
Upon interception by police, it was found that a cow and a bullock were already dead, as the vehicle lacked ample space for the cattle. Anjum fled the spot but was later held by cops.
In the trial, the sessions court booked him under relevant sections of the Gujarat Animal Preservation Act, 2011, Gujarat Animal Preservation (Amendment) Act, 2017, and the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960.
In 2017, the state government introduced a strict anti-cow slaughter law in the form of the ‘Gujarat Animal Preservation (Amendment) Act, 2017’, which provides a life term for anyone found guilty of cow slaughter or having direct involvement in such an illegal act.
The court sentenced the accused to life imprisonment under the amended Act and imposed a fine of Rs 5 lakh on him.
