Although, Muslims are always accused of slaughtering cow and being cruel towards animals but the fact is completely contrary to the claim. Mewat Muslims by setting up a cow shelter to take care of the cattle had proved that the claims are false.
Mewat Muslim youths started cow shelter with four cows which now houses more than 50 cattle. They have also welcomed the Haryana Cow Protection Act which bans slaughtering of cow.
Sources revealed that the youths are running this shelter with their own money. They have also purchased a drinking water connection to provide water to the cows. Youths said that they have constructed this shelter to provide relief to the animals in summer season.
However, Govt. of Haryana is reluctant to provide any help to run the shelter despite repeated pleas. Resident of Mewat requested the State Government to provide financial help to run the shelter.
