COW-KILLING AGITATION
Protest Meeting At Cawnpore
(From Our Correspondent)
Cawnpore, Oct 28

The Cawnpore Hindu Sabha has taken up the question of cow-killing at Ajodhia and has authorised its President, the Hon. Lala Bishambhar Nath, to communicate with the Hindu members of the Local Legislative Council and other prominent leaders of the community with a view to organise a deputation to wait upon His Honour the Lieutenant-Governor and to represent the Hindu feeling on the question. The Brahmavarta Santana Dharma Mahamandal, which has been holding its meetings for some days, devoted a whole evening to the discussion of this question, and the meeting, at which more than five thousand persons were present, passed resolutions urging upon the Government the necessity of preventing the slaughter of cows at Ajodhia and giving expression to the discontent and restlessness that has prevailed in the community as a result of the action of the authorities at Ajodhia in getting cows slaughtered there with the help of the Military. The meeting also appealed to the Mahomedan leaders to use their influence at Ajodhia and to stop cow sacrifice there.
