Jaipur, Sep 15 (IBNS): Union Women and Child Development Minister Maneka Gandhi on Monday said that the money from illegal animal slaughter is being used for sponsoring acts of terrorism, reports said.

“We are the largest beef exporters in the world and also killing them for leather production. We are actually killing more animals than China,” Gandhi said during a valedictory lecture at the India for Animals conference in Jaipur.

She said the money is going into terrorism. “It is going into bomb making. It is going into killing us. Why we are allowing this? It is a trade of Indians. Do not blame a particular community for this,” she said.

Gandhi urged NGOs, volunteers and civil society to join hands with the ‘save animals movement’. She also asked them to set up informer systems to sound an alarm to prevent such illegal cattle-smuggling trade, sources said.

She said India is illegally exporting beef to Bangladesh and that country claims it is exporting about 160,000 tonnes of beef.

“But as a matter of fact Bangladesh do not own a single cow,” she said.
