“Cow Hug Day” on February 14



Hugging a cow will offer emotional richness, which will boost our individual & social pleasure because of the enormous benefits of cows (sic). Therefore, all cow lovers are welcome to observe February 14 as Cow Hug Day while remembering the significance of mother cows, who “make life pleasant and full of good energy,” the organisation said in its appeal, which was reported by the media.

The cow, according to the welfare board, is the “backbone of Indian culture and rural economy,” and it also symbolises “cattle riches and biodiversity.”

According to the AWBI, “it is known as “Kamdhenu” and “Gaumata” because of its nurturing qualities similar to mother, the giver of everything supplying resources to humanity.

The AWBI is criticised in the report for allegedly having double standards by a representative of the Dairy Farmers Federation of India.
