Serious doubts were raised by devout Hindus on the Mlecchas (muslims) to facilitate and support on proper implementation of Cow Slaughter Ban. They were right as soon several incidences of voilating Cow Ban act were reported, one of the incidents happened in Ratlam, where muslim cattle smugglers in tandem with their Maharashtra counterparts wanted to smuggle cattle to illegally push cow slaughter business.
Ratlam police on Thursday foiled an attempt to illegally transport 49 cattle for slaughter to Malegaon district in Maharashtra.
