Inmates face ‘cow therapy’

AFP / Share:

NEW DELHI (AFP) – Indian inmates are to be exposed to the “magical power” of cows, authorities said yesterday. A government commission in Haryana tasked with protecting the sacred animals says it has earmarked $1.5 million for buying 600 cows and constructing barns in six prisons across the state. The chairman of the Gau Sewa Aayog, or Cow Welfare Commission, said prisoners would be steered away from a life of crime through the “cow therapy” programme. “Cows are part of the Hindu religion, and they have magical powers on those who care for her,” commission chairman Bhani Ram Mangla said.
