Time : Sometime in 1640s

Place : Islamic State of Bijapur, India. (Consider ISIS territory of today)


An ordinary day in city.

Market is congested.

Butchers chatting with each other slaughtering goats, sheep and cows.

Skullcaps, beards and Hijabs everywhere.

Hindus passing by with heads hung down in fear.

Fear of being Hindu in Sharia run state.

Fear of Jaziya.

Fear of getting beaten up.

Fear of abduction.

Fear of rape.

Fear of getting beheaded.

Fear of desecrated temples.

Cows being cut in front of a temple.

To make Hindus feel insulted and destroyed.

To prove superiority of the best religion.

A butcher is dragging a cow to slaughter point.

Cow is helpless.

Tears in her eyes.

Her calf falls on ground seeing mother who will never come back.

Butcher’s eyes shining with pride of insulting filthy idol worshippers.

Cow surrenders.

Cow falls on ground. One last cry.

Loud, clear, motherly.

Could melt even heart of stones.

But hearts filled with fear and hatred never melt.

No one would listen. Except one young man.

He comes on a horse.

Face of innocence. Biceps and Chests of a mighty.

Stops at butcher’s place.

His eyes as red as Tilak on forehead.

And wet.

What happened next

“Who dragged the cow?” – the lion roars.

“Who are you?” – asks the butcher.

“Free the cow right now.”

“Who are you?” – shouts the butcher again.

“You have one last chance.”

“Who the hell are you to ask me? What can you do, filthy Kafir? I will kill your mother and eat it.” – butcher yells at youth.

10 butchers from shops around surround the man. Daggers in their hands.

“Am asking for last time.”- man warns.

“Who are you, Kafir!”. The butcher picks his dagger to stab cow in neck. Starts yelling- Allahu Akbar – in Halal Islamic way, ignoring man’s warning.

And then

And then, there is flesh and blood on ground all of a sudden.

No, it is not of cow.

The butcher has been butchered.

The warrior’s sword was unsheathed for a moment.

Cow is free as the hands holding her were no more joined from arms.

It was quick.

Quicker than the butcher’s halal.

Skullcap is displaced from butcher’s head. Now lying next to cut-hand on ground.

Warrior’s Tilak on forehead is covered with bloodspill.

Now butcher is moaning instead of cow.

The mob is stunned.

10 butchers surrounding the warrior turn into statues.

The warrior speaks who he is: “I am Gorakhshak.”

“No cow will be butchered here from now.”: he roars.

“But, we butcher cows everyday. This is Islamic State. How the hell can we not kill the cow?” – Butchers murmur gently as they slowly retreat. And shout as they run away when they feel they are at safe distance from the Hindu sword. “Astagfirullah!”

“Time has changed.”

The hero gets on to horse sheathing the blood soaked sword.

“The Sultan will get angry with you” – someone in the mob warns.

“Which Sultan?” – warrior disappears.

20 years later

The Hindu King walks the same road on horse with hundreds of soldiers following.

Same sword in hand.

Sword that freed helpless cow from the butcher 20 years ago.

But time has changed.

It was not Allahu Akbar chants anymore.

It was “Har Har Mahadev” this time.

It was no more Shiva this time. It was Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj this time.

Our pride. Our hero. Our inspiration.

No matter who gets angry.

Protect cow.

Protect innocents.

Protect humanity!

Jai Bhavani Jai Shivaji!

  • At 1st, im not a muslim..ok..!!
    Tell me,
    Is this is ur personal view or is there any story available in #historic books or #novels source?
    If not, then, This is all bullshit stuff… bcause..
    I’m a #martha and we know how the “#shivaji maharaj” is..!
    He’s not against muslims or any religion..
    Don’t try to make #raje anti-muslim or religious..
    He didn’t differ any person by its #religion or #caste..
    And last thing keep ur knowledge at ur pocket..
    Don’t throw it anywhere.. we don’t need them..

  • Contd…

    Just below my house, there is 10ft by 10ft place in which is crowded with 6 cows and 2 calves… rolling in their own urine and shit on a cold hard cement floor… never sees the light of day. Milked every day… all surrounded by Hindu houses who will rise to kill a beef eater. Is this how you keep your mother? If the cow could speak, she will thank the one from her heart to be killed.


    • Why do not you do something about it if you have problems with that. What is your contribution in saving those cows which are sitting below your house and serving people. It is not a matter of Hindu or muslim, you might find muslims who might be protecting cows too. But if you are hindu then why are you asking other hindus to take care of cows. You do not want to take any responsibility no matter what, but expect “someone else” can come and fix the issues.

  • Contd from earlier post…

    Now, if you resort to emotional rhetoric on the lines of “will you stand by quietly if someone is killing your mother”…. then my response to you will be… everyday your socalled mother is left on the streets to eat plastic, garbage, covered in her own excreta, then herded in the even and tied up to collect her milk… if this is how you treat your mother, then she is better off dead than alive.

  • Brother, to begin, I am not a Muslim.

    Firstly, what is the source of these stories that you are posting? As far as my knowledge goes, there is none…. then is this the product of a story writing competition at IIT?

    Secondly, this is a democratic country, if there is a law against cow slaughter which has prescribed punishments, then the duty of every law abiding citizen is to catch such offenders and hand them over to the police and then ensure that justice is done.

    • You must increase your knowledge if you do not know about Shivaji and his related story that author has given above. It is extremely sad that indian text books do not teach any good thing about their heroes, they will only talk about Mugal dynasty. But if you are truly interested, you can do search on google and find lot of relevant stuff. Invest some time and you can gain knowledge.

  • Happy Rakshabandhan to whole Agniveer team!
    May your fighting spirit against injustice, racism, casteism, terrorism, poverty, corruption should be lessons for everyone especially the younger generation. May your high moral character and immense respect to every woman brings the best in our society and wipes out tears from every woman of the country. May once again, our Bharat becomes a “JagadGuru”. Thanks so much for all of your efforts. We acknowledge and appreciate that.

  • Its good what Shivaji did but if you want to say more, please mention that in Shivajis script, He also married a Muslim Girl!!! First in his community!!! In the same time he fought bitterly with Mughals also

    • Are you kidding! Shivaji never married muslim girl. Yes, Shivaji respected Hindus and Muslims and especially women but he never married any muslim girl! I am surprised how many people are ignorant of their own leaders, brave heroes who did every sacrifice to protect their countrymen from invaders.

    • so what if he had married a muslim girl? that does not mean he got converted. In islam it is considered as pride to marry and rape kafir Mon-muslim women. So if shivaji had done it there would have been nothing wrong. In fact it would have made the muslims even more angry and jealous and would have been the matter of pride for the hindus and also it would have saved the life of a muslim girl from the demonic muslim men.

    • Thanks for sharing the link. Cows are not even smarter, but they are very loyal and emotional animals. Honestly, I think, humans are more cruel than any animal.

  • Protection of any animal from killing is a nobel cause. You are saving life. Protection of our dairy animals is even bigger cause as it helps the environment in many fold. This is the reason almost all of ancient vedic indians were vegetarians. If you want to follow spiritual path, first thing is to become vegetarian.

    • Brother in which scripture it is written, which veda, which chapter in which sloka or any epics like Ramayana or Mahabharata or any other?

      • Have you read any upanishad! You will find there the secret of happiness of ancient indians. Hope you might get some awakening! Wish you the best.

  • We believe protecting cows is a most important component of protecting the earth. According to the ancient Vedic texts the cow is the representative of Mother Earth.
    Regardless of milk production, cows and bulls also produce dung and urine which is valuable as fertilizer, compost, cleaning products and biogas fuel. Cows and Bulls must be sheltered in goshala, wherein they must be fed properly and are taken care of.

  • The cow is considered one of our mothers, as she gives us her milk and thus nurtures our health and well being. Just as no civilized person would injure or kill their mother, the Vedas teach that to take milk from the cow and then kill her is the same as killing one’s mother. Similarly, the bull is considered like the father because the bull traditionally helps in the tilling of the fields, and thus is to be respected.
