    The cow vigilante will have no role to play if cow trafficking is done away with. The cattle trafficking mafias are dangerous people and they should be handled with utmost strictness by law. When law fails to handle them, vigilante groups are bound to surface after witnessing decades of cow slaughtering.

    Btw, I have a question to ask to Kashmiriyat as a media house, does having more children absolve any criminal of his illegal act or activity ?

    This heniou work is done by bloody fool people. They have Government support indirectly that is why they are showing such courage. But the culprit will not live happily and peacefully for long time. The will suffer pain in their life by the curse of survival of the victim by the almighty Allah.
