Swamy Chakrapani's remark came after Modi hit out against cow vigilantes

New Delhi: The Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha on Monday said that it would send legal notice to Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his comments against "Gau Rakshaks (cow protectors).

"We are sending a legal notice to the Prime Minister asking that on what grounds he declared 70-80% Gau Rakshaks as anti-social elements,” Swamy Chakrapani, a leader of Aakhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha told a TV news channel.

His remark came after Modi hit out against cow vigilantes in his interaction at Town Hall-style meeting here on Saturday and at a speech in Telangana on Sunday in both of which he asked states to probe the fake "gau rakshaks" and take strong action against them, saying they were destroying the country.

'Gau rakshaks' and many right-wing organisations across the country lashed out at Modi for his comments against cow vigilantism.

Lashing out at Modi, president Gau Rakshak Dal, Pawan Pandit said that whatever statements the PM had given in last two days over cow vigilante are “condemnable”.

“PM Modi should apologise for his remarks over Gau Rakshaks and should also take his statements back,” Pandit told a TV news channel.
