The new weapon launched by the amazing Indian Bureaucrats……
Indian border guards are photographing cows in villages in the eastern state of West Bengal and issuing them with identity cards, officials say.
Border Security Force (BSF) spokesman GK Sharma said the move was meant to stop smuggling of cattle from India to neighbouring Bangladesh.
Thousands of villagers in the state’s Murshidabad district bordering Bangladesh are queuing up outside photo studios to have their cows photographed for the identity cards.
Some cattle identity cards have already been issued in the district’s border villages.
Of course, the idea that maybe there is a potential market here is a big no-no to religion soaked minds.
India prohibits cattle exports, as beef consumption is frowned upon by the country’s majority Hindu population.
