Farmer's family thrown out of village in India over accidently killing cow

*NEW DELHI - Hindu extremism has once again rose over the issue of cow.*

*A farmer and his family were expelled from their village for accidentally killing a cow in Sheopur district of Madhya Pradesh in India, Hindustan Times link reported Wednesday*.

The decision to expel the Pappu Prajpati’s family was taken by the village’s panchayat.

The farmer said that he was parking his tractor-trolley “when it hit a cow that was sitting on the ground behind”. The cow died on the spot.

The panchayat in its decision said that the family would be allowed to enter village after all the members take a dip in Ganga to wash their sins and donate a cow.

One of the members of the panchayat, Om Prakash Gautam told the newspaper: “Since Prajapati has been proved guilty of a gai-hatya, he and his family have to get rid of sin through penance.”

Cow slaughter and consumption of beef are banned in many Indian states officially. Many Muslims have been killed in the country by violent mobs for slaughtering cows and consuming beef.
