This happens in NH47, Kerala
Slaughtering cows, sacred to India's Hindu majority, is legal only in the states of West Bengal, in the far east, and Kerala, in the southwest, both provinces where communist parties have a strong presence.Animal rights groups such the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals say cows are illegally transported to the two states to escape the ban elsewhere.
The poor animals that you see in the picture are not aware of the fate that is ahead of them- their last ride. Cow slaughter can never be stopped by law. Knowledge, education, and the spirit of kindliness towards her alone can put and end to it.
