Those who want to protect the cow are welcome to make a request but not PROHIBIT (Gandhi)

Vishal Singh pointed out this brilliant piece of Gandhian thinking:

"Gandhi writing in Hind Swaraj on how to achieve cow-protection: (note: Gandhi was a big votary of cow-protection)

"Therefore, the only method I know of protecting the cow is that I should approach my Mohammedan brother and urge him for the sake of the country to join me in protecting her. If he would not listen to me I should let the cow go for the simple reason that the matter is beyond my ability. If I were overfull of pity for the cow, I should sacrifice my life to save her but not take my brother's. This, I hold, is the law of our religion."
