11. Beef Controversy – sense and nonsense by Aravindan N " Amidst the din, certain important facts tends to be be forgotten. Be it, Buddhism or Vedic religion, the overall Indic culture has been against cow slaughter. In fact, Dr. Ambedkar states that Buddhists were the first to campaign against cow slaughter: "The Buddhists rejected … animal sacrifice, particularly of the cow. The objection to the sacrifice of the cow had taken a strong hold of the minds of the masses as they were an agricultural population and the cow was a very useful animal."
'The sentiment against beef was essentially political since it was commonly eaten by Muslims. Cow protection, therefore, became a religious statement when the first movement to protect the cow was started by the Sikh Kuka (Namdhari) sect in 1870. In 1882, Dayananda Saraswati founded the Gorakshini Sabha.
