All India Hindu Mahasabha President Swami Chakrapani has written to President Ram Nath Kovind demanding that the government and pharmaceutical companies clarify whether COVID-19 vaccines contain cow's blood.
In a memorandum to the President, Chakrapani said it should be clarified that cow's blood or any such substance has not been used in the vaccine, which "hurts the spirit of Hindu Sanatan Dharma".
राष्ट्रपति को दिया गया ज्ञापन, करोना के वैक्सीन या दवा भारत में लाने से पहले सरकार या अंतरराष्ट्रीय कंपनियां देश को स्पष्ट करें की वैक्सीन या दवा में गाय का खून अथवा कोई भी ऐसे पदार्थ ना हो जो हिंदू सनातन धर्म की भावना को आहत करता है🌸🙏🌸 स्वामी चक्रपाणि महाराज- pic.twitter.com/UgOj1idLAF— Swami Chakrapani Maharaj (@SwamyChakrapani) December 27, 2020
Chakrapani said during the British rule, "cow fat was used in cartridges to corrupt religion against which Mangal Pandey of Maharishi Bhrigu's Tapobhumi Ballia burnt the bugle of rebellion".
The country's first freedom fighters sacrificed themselves for religion and nation, but did not compromise, he said.
Chakrapani expressed concern over an "international conspiracy to destroy religion by feeding cow's blood, meat or fat in the name of corona vaccine and medicine".
