Calling for a countrywide ban on cow slaughter, various mutt heads from Tamil Nadu met at Kumbakonam today. It was one among the several resolutions passed by religious heads at the meeting.

Among the slew of resolutions were the demand for an audit by Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) in government-run temples, with an income of over Rs one crore, to introduce a law to ban cow slaughter. This, according to the Mutt heads, will save the cow. Resolutions to ban export of cow meat, to regularise the post of temple priest and make their pay on par with that of government employees were also passed.

Over 150 mutt heads participated in the meeting presided by VHP representatives, including state president R S Narayanaswamy.
