Muslim men accused of transporting cows for slaughter killed in India

By Murali Krishnan

In India, cows are protected by the constitution -- inline with many Indian religions which hold cattle tobe sacred. In some states, it is illegal to kill or eat cows, in others it’s allowed, and in others it’s carefully regulated.

But in the past two years, over a dozen people have been killed and scores have been injured as mobs attack people, usually Muslims, who are accused of transporting or killing cows.

Murali Krishnan reports from northern India on the country’s cow vigilantes.
