Hindu Group Hosts Gaumutra Party, Offers Cow Urine to Ward off Coronavirus!
While the whole world is grappling with the deadly coronavirus, Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha (All India Hindu Union) organised a “Gaumutra Party” to distribute cow urine as a cure for the disease. Well, it doesn’t come as a shock as many Hindus consider the cow sacred and some drink cow urine with the belief that it contains medicinal properties.
Even though scientists and experts have constantly asserted that cow urine does not cure illnesses and there is no proof that it can prevent coronavirus, but it doesn’t matter. Because apparently, the cow is sacred and its urine cures fatal diseases like cancer. Duh! And scientists have been wasting their time looking for a cure. Amateurs!
The Hindu group hosted the “Gaumutra Party” at its headquarters in Delhi, where 200 people gathered to drink cow urine. The organisers hoped to host similar events at various other places throughout the country.
One of the attendees at the party, Om Prakash said,
We have been drinking cow urine for 21 years, we also take bath in cow dung. We have never felt the need to consume English medicine.
Holding a spoon filled with cow urine near the face of a caricature of the coronavirus, Chakrapani Maharaj, the chief of the All India Hindu Union, posed for photographs.
Shocked, people posted the news on social media. Bollywood actress Richa Chadha shared a poster on Twitter and asked if someone could live stream the happenings of the party.
Just want someone to Livestream this party… Wanna see who’s actually getting pissed drunk at this party! Glug glug cheers ! https://t.co/YJGiyPKToR

Well, she got her wish fulfilled as someone posted a video clip and shared it with the actress.
No no no no NOOOOO! What. No. Really ? https://t.co/4Ecp9q72mD

Amusing themselves with this information, Richa’s fans also cracked jokes about the party. “Does one drink this neat or with soda?”, someone wrote.
However, this is not the first instance where people have turned blind eye to science and facts and idolised not only the cow but its excreta as well. Various leaders from PM Modi’s Hindu nationalist party have time and again implied to use cow urine as medicine.
Recently, BJP legislator in Assam, Suman Haripriya claimed that cow urine and cow dung can be used to cure deadly diseases like cancer. During a discussion on smuggling of cattle to Bangladesh during Special Mention on the first day of the budget session of the assembly, she said,
We all know that cow dung is very helpful. Likewise, when cow urine is sprayed, it purifies the area…I believe something similar could be done with cow urine and dung to cure coronavirus.
More than 80 confirmed cases have been recorded in India so far, whereas the number of coronavirus cases has reached 1,30,000 worldwide, with over 5,000 dead.
The World Health Organisation has declared the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic and has recommended social distancing and frequent hand-washing as the best ways to avoid the infection while the scientists and virologists are trying to develop a cure.
The shocking news of “Gaumutra Party” and related statements only disrupt the remaining peace of mind. No matter what the situation is, cow politics has always succeeded in manipulating the blind faithful buffoons in this country.
Now, in utter disbelief, only one thought comes to mind – Is faith so gullible that it can be easily manipulated and turned into a farce?
