The internet is pretty amused with West Bengal BJP chief Dilip Ghosh’s statement that Indian cows’ milk contains gold. At a programme in Burdwan district, Ghosh said, “A feature of the Indian cow is that its milk contains gold. That’s the reason the colour of the milk is yellowish.”
During his speech, Ghosh also justified the reason behind his ‘gold’ opinion about cow’s milk and added, “The Indian cows have humps, which the foreign cows don’t have. The foreign cow has a straight back, like a buffalo. The hump has an artery, called ‘swarnanari’ (gold artery). When sunlight falls on it, gold is made.”
“So the texture turns yellow or golden. This milk has preventive properties. A person can live on this kind of milk only. You don’t have to eat anything else. It is a complete food,” he said.
It wasn’t just the gold bit but Dilip Ghosh also said during his speech that “it is a heinous crime to insult, kill cows, and eat beef in the holy land of India. We will look upon them as anti-socials.”
